The Air Canada Vacations and Sandals Partnership

It’s no secret that Sandals is all about romantic couples – and you’d look hard to find a happier twosome than Sandals and Air Canada Vacations.

Partnering for over 40 years, the resort group and the tour operator are eagerly awaiting a bumper crop of clients travelling to the Bahamas this winter.

With the grand reopening of Sandals Royal Bahamian in Nassau and the beautiful Sandals Emerald Bay in Exuma, there’s much to chat about!

Air Canada mainline is serving the Bahamas this winter with daily YYZ-NAS flights from 20DEC to 30APR (and 5 times weekly during the rest of the year).

From YUL, Sunday Nassau flights began 05DEC and Saturday service goes into effect 18DEC. There will be an additional Monday flight until 02APR, bringing the frequency up to 3 times weekly and back to twice weekly for the rest of April.

And with 54 connecting flights from across Canada to Toronto, Air Canada is definitely the go-to carrier for convenience and client-pleasing schedules.

The sunsoaked island of Exuma is part of the Exuma Cays, a necklace of islands stretching southeast from Nassau.  And for clients who love a short transfer time, they’ll love Emerald Bay, it’s only 15 minutes from the airport.

And when it comes to knowing Sandals best, agents need look no further than Air Canada Vacations. “We have a dedicated team in reservations who are continuously upgrading their product knowledge,” says Erminia Nigro, General Manager of Sales/Ontario for Air Canada Vacations. There’s also a dedicated Sandals phone line.

“With our $59 Carefree program, we offer a price drop guarantee and standard seat selection,” says Nigro, “And for just $99 the Carefree Plus program also includes change or cancel with full refund up to 25 days prior to departure.”

One piece of luggage is included with all tickets and ACV will offer a price match up to $50.  And for agents looking for group space:  good news.  ACV can secure group rates up to two full years in advance.

As Nigro puts it, “We are super excited to see how well this will go!”
