Pearson Airport in Mississauga continues to reintroduce scores of flights to various vacation hot spots in the sunny south.

The latest getaway offerings come courtesy of WestJet, Sunwing and Flair airlines and include destinations such as Cozumel, Cayo Coco (Cuba), Belize, Providenciales in the Turks & Caicos, San Juan, Bermuda, Orlando, Mazatlan, Cayo Largo (Cuba), St. Lucia and Phoenix/Mesa in Arizona.

And for good measure, Edmonton-based Flair is also resuming flights from Pearson to the colder climate of Thunder Bay, Ont.

The discount carrier has also restarted its Phoenix/Mesa weekly service.

Meanwhile, Toronto-based low-cost carrier Sunwing is resuming flights to Orlando, Mazatlan, Cayo Largo and St. Lucia.

And WestJet, Canada’s second-largest carrier, is once again flying from Mississauga-based Pearson to Cozumel, Cayo Coco, Belize, Turks & Caicos, San Juan (Puerto Rico) and Bermuda, starting this month.

Late last week, airport officials announced more than a dozen other vacation spots in the sunny south to where flights via various carriers had resumed.

On Friday, Pearson announced via Twitter that Air Transat had resumed its weekly flights to Montego Bay in Jamaica, Puerto Vallarta in Mexico, Cartagena in Colombia and Samana in the Dominican Republic.

As air travel continues to dramatically increase in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, Canada’s third-largest airline has been gradually reintroducing service to a number of big-name destinations around the world.

Additionally, Air Transat announced today (Nov. 21) its 2023 schedule will include 275 weekly flights to more than 40 destinations from Pearson, Montreal and Quebec City airports.

In June of this year, Air Transat resumed weekly flights to Venice, Italy, the city of canals. In May, it restarted non-stop service from Pearson to Paris, in addition to similar service to Barcelona and Zagreb.

In April of this year, the airline announced it was reinstating service to Dublin five times a week.

Last Thursday, Air Canada announced it was restarting service to 13 sunny destinations.

Canada’s flagship carrier has resumed flights to West Palm Beach and Sarasota in Florida, Huatulco, Cozumel and Zihuatanejo in Mexico, Lima (Peru), Holguin (Cuba), Grenada, Panama City (Panama), St. Vincent and the Grenadines, San Juan (Puerto Rico), St. Kitts and St. Maarten.

On Wednesday, Air Canada resumed service from Pearson to Samana, Dominican Republic, a town “lined with pristine beaches,” airport officials tweeted.
