Abbotsford-to-Puerto Vallarta flights coming this winter

Sunwing to offer direct flights for vacation package customers

Sunwing Airlines will offer direct flights from Abbotsford International Airport to Puerto Vallarta in Mexico this winter, the company announced Monday..

The company says it will begin offering weekly vacation packages beginning in December and running until April 2018.

“Service additions are always great news for Abbotsford and for residents across the Fraser Valley region,” Abbotsford Mayor Henry Braun said in a news release. “The airport is one of our main economic enablers and is a key factor in making us a regional hub for transportation and investment. This new route gives our residents another great option when traveling to Mexico for their winter holidays, and we are happy to welcome Sunwing to YXX and our region.”

A previous version of this story said the flights were for those who purchased vacation packages. That’s incorrect. The company will offer flights only, as well as vacation packages.
