Following Calgary-based WestJet’s acquisition of Sunwing Airlines in May, WestJet is reportedly shutting down Toronto-based Sunwing in a bid to streamline its overall operations.

WestJet also noted that travel tour operator Sunwing Vacations will continue to run as part of the WestJet Group.

Sunwing Vacations with recognizable name will reportedly continue to operate under its own name and brand with WestJet Vacations as Sunwing Vacations.

Referencing the terms and conditions placed on the sale, a spokesperson for Transport Minister Omar Alghabra was reported to say that any violation of those terms “would be a violation of the merger agreement.”
