Day-to-day operations of WestJet Vacations Québec are being led by Lyne Chayer, vice-president, Québec, for Sunwing Vacations Group.

“I am incredibly excited to launch WestJet Vacations Québec, a new vacation provider tailored specifically to our customers residing in Québec, featuring the destinations Québec customers know and love, and those that will soon be on their list of favourites, including the laidback destination of Tulum in Mexico,” she said. 

Chayer shared that Québec residents can reach out to their local travel advisor to book all inclusive packages to a number of great properties in destination, including Bahia Principe Hotels and Resorts, which are available to book now, and Barceló Hotel Group properties, which will be available to book in the coming weeks. 

"We cannot wait for travel advisors and clients to uncover the exceptional value and variety on all inclusive packages available through WestJet Vacations Québec and look forward to helping them embark on their well-deserved getaways to the sun," concluded Chayer.

Advisors will notice that the WestJet Vacations Québec website is exactly the same as Sunwing's.
