      In time for the winter travel season, Sunwing is offering a new seasonal direct flight service from Vancouver to Montego Bay, Jamaica.

      The service starts on December 19, and will be available once a week every Tuesday (departing from Vancouver at 6 a.m.) until April 3.

      In advance of the new service, the Jamaica Tourist Board will be launching a pop-up shop from November 16 to 19 at 1263 Homer Street in Yaletown for those interested in finding out more vacation information.

      The beach-themed Feel the Vibe Jamaica Pop-Up Shop will feature a "Patty Hour" with Jamaican patties, cocktail specials, and Red Stripe beer. Evening entertainment will include live music and dance, featuring reggae, rocksteady, roots, ska, and dancehall. Sunwing Vacations will also be present to offer information about vacation packages and a chance to win a seven-day, all-inclusive vacation package for two that includes return flights on the new service and resort accommodations.

      Information about Jamaica is also available at the Jamaica Tourist Board's Visit Jamaica website.
