Sunwing: Interview with Colin Hunter and Sam Char
jaimonvoyage.ca – Jean-Pierre Kerten – Apr 07, 2015
During a fam trip in Dubai organized by the Quebec tour operator Godubaï two weeks ago, I had the opportunity, as other participants, to spend some time with Colin Hunter and Sam Char, respectively Chairman and Executive Director of the Sunwing Travel Group. Godubaï was in charge of the logistics of a show given by Colin Hunter at the InterContinental Dubai’s Golf Club on March 26. In an interview in a restaurant in Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping mall, Colin Hunter and Sam Char agreed to provide an overview of the situation.
About the operations in the United States with Vacation Express and the opening of Cuba
Is it time to develop your Vacation Express US division, following the opening between the US and Cuba? We are the world’s largest tour operator in Cuba. When Cuba will be open to the US market, we will move forward. But it is not yet the case. Standardization will take some time. There are still many issues to resolve. But as we consistently have a better quality hotel inventory in Cuba, we should benefit from the normalization between the two states.
