Sunwing Airlines is a Canadian low-cost airline headquartered in Toronto, Canada. This airline offers many flights to the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and South America.
In 2004, Sunwing Vacations had become the second largest tour operator in the Ontario, Canada area. The idea of creating an airline was established a year later and within a short space of time. By November 2005, Sunwing Airlines flew their first flight, a Boeing 737-800 which departed form Toronto Pearson Airport. A year later, November 2006, the airline flew its first flight out of the Montreal-Trudeau airport. By 2008, the airline had expanded its operations to 29 cities.
