Fredericton airport loses Sunwing flights to Cuba
Sunwing service will be offered at Saint John Airport instead this year
The Fredericton International Airport is losing its direct Sunwing flight service to Cuba — at least temporarily.
The airline is switching the service over to the Saint John Airport instead this year.
"We tried to help facilitate a solution that would have seen the service remain at the Fredericton airport this year, but since this is an issue between the two carriers and doesn’t involve the airport directly, the fact is we are limited in what we can do," Innes said in a statement on Thursday.
"Sunwing has stressed this this is simply an interruption in service and that the airline has every intention of being back at the Fredericton airport next year," the statement said.
Sunwing has offered service to Varadero, Cuba, in February and March for the past several years in Fredericton.
