Sonesta Resorts Sint Maarten partners with SunWing for new Canadian program

Sonesta Resorts Sint Maarten has partnered with Sunwing to debut new vacations packages on November 6, 2011. Operating year-round, charter flights will fly from Toronto and Montreal to the Caribbean island of Sint Maarten and feature all-inclusive stays at Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort & Casino and Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino.

“We are very excited to feature such a well-reputed Canadian operator,” says Armando Pizzuti, general manager of Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino. “This initiative will help increase the island of Sint Maarten’s awareness amongst Canadian travelers, with potential to welcome an additional 1,000 guests per week.”

The new partnership originated with a conversation between Sonesta Sint Maarten, the St. Maarten Tourist Office and Sunwing during SMART 2011, the island’s annual tourism conference held each May. Both parties saw the opportunity to expand St. Maarten’s business in Canada.

Sunwing’s charter flights will offer a capacity of 200 seats. Four flights will depart per week during high season December to April, with two flights available per week from May to November.
