Sunshine Flights Returning To YQM

Direct sunshine flights from the Greater Moncton Roméo LeBlanc International Airport (YQM) will return early next month for the first time since the pandemic.

Courtney Burns, YQM president and CEO, noted 10 weekly flights will take sunseekers to Florida, Cuba, Mexico, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic.

“In the pre-Christmas period when I was speaking with our charter airline partners, Sunwing and Air Transat, they said a few weeks in the Moncton schedule for the winter and they were nearing 80 to 85 percent sold.”

Sunwing recently cancelled one flight to Varadero out of Moncton but Burns added it should be the only one.

“We have had reassurance from Sunwing that we’re not expecting any further reductions to our schedule this winter.”

Given the unpredictable winter weather conditions in our region, Burns said travellers should stay up to date with their travel provider about any potential changes to schedules.
