Canadian government ‘concerned’ with Sunwing meltdown | News
The Canadian government is criticising leisure specialist Sunwing Vacations after an operational meltdown left hundreds of passengers stuck when winter weather disrupted the carrier’s operations earlier this week.
The Toronto-based company, like its US peer Southwest Airlines, has been scrambling to sort through the mess, leaving customers frustrated and angry. Canadian media reports that some of the carrier’s passengers have been waiting to be repatriated from Latin American holiday destinations including Cancun for up to five days.
“I am very concerned with the current situation with Sunwing Airlines,” Canada’s minister of transport Omar Alghabra wrote on 28 December on Twitter.
