Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit, Mexico - Canadian airline Sunwing will begin operating its new seasonal flight from Quebec to the Puerto Vallarta-Riviera Nayarit region during the upcoming winter season.

"Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit are always popular as vacation destinations and we're sure this new service will be very welcome," he added.
The announcement was made after an intense promotional tour carried out by the Riviera Nayarit CVB and the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Trust during the month of May throughout the top Canadian cities of origin to the destination.
Sunwing - the top airline for travel agents focused on the leisure market - currently operates 19 direct flights from 11 Canadian cities to this region during the winter season.
For its part, Sunwing Travel Group offers an ample variety of resorts within the Riviera Nayarit, among them, Iberostar Playa Mita, RIU Jalisco and Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort and Spa. These are not only high-quality resorts, but they also provide their guests with a gamut of culinary options and a long list of leisure activities.
"This new flight promotes the arrival of more Canadians to the region, reinforcing the presence of the Riviera Nayarit in one of North America's most important markets," said Marc Murphy, managing director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau.
