Edmonton – Travellers who plan to get away this winter have many sunspot destinations to choose from when departing from Edmonton International Airport. The newest addition, a twice-weekly charter flight to Laughlin, Nevada, is operated by SunFest Tours.

Laughlin is well known as a world-class golf destination set up in a resort town on the banks of the Colorado River in the Nevada desert. Vacationers can enjoy packages starting as low as $439 plus taxes. Departures from Edmonton are Mondays and Fridays and flights offered are a combination of direct and nonstop flights. Travellers are encouraged to choose the nonstop flights as much as possible to support this new nonstop destination.

Flights to other sunny destinations are also available from Edmonton this winter. Charter sunspot destinations include:

• Cancun
• Las Vegas
• Laughlin
• Manzanillo
• Mazatlan
• Punta Cana
• Puerto Plata
• Puerto Vallarta
• Varadero

“Winter sunspot flights are especially popular for travellers at this time of year, and airlines have responded to the demand by increasing frequencies and destinations,” states Scott Clements, President and CEO of Edmonton Airports. “We are pleased to add Laughlin to our sunny destination list.”

Scheduled service to other southern destinations continues to Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Phoenix.
