Anyone thinking about a vacation in the sun this winter can  learn about all their options for travel at the Nanaimo Airport.

The airport is hosting its Sizzling Sun Travel Show  Sunday (Nov. 20) from noon to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

Representatives from Air Canada Vacations, Mexican resorts and Nanaimo travel agencies will be available.

Travel presentations take place every 30 minutes, providing information on destination resorts including Cuba, Mexico, the Caribbean and Hawaii.

The show also includes draw prizes tours of the renovated airport and the Great Paper Airplane Contest.

Participants can try their hand at crafting and flying a paper airplane in support of the Canadian Diabetes Association’s Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Air Canada donated airfare for two to Los Cabos, Mexico as the adult prize. There are also a number children’s prizes and categories.

“We know people are starting to think about their sun travel plans, so we have come up with this fun event,” said Mike Hooper, Nanaimo Airport CEO.  “The goal is to share great travel deals that are available right from Nanaimo and support this important cause.”
