ATLANTA, GA – December 16, 2014 – Vacation Express announced today the expansion and return of exclusive non-stop flights from Columbus, Ohio to Cancun, Mexico and new non-stop flights to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic beginning March 2015, plus the return of non-stop flights to Grand Bahama Island starting July 2015.

The 25 year old tour operator, known for affordable all-inclusive vacation packages and non-stop flights to Mexico and the Caribbean, will partner with Interjet, Swift Air, LLC and Sunwing Airlines to begin seasonal, non-stop flights from Port Columbus International Airport (CMH) to Cancun International Airport (CUN) and Grand Bahama International Airport (FPO) plus the new, non-stop flights to Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ).

 “After recently meeting with many excited local business leaders, we are thrilled to offer expanded  vacation packages that include airfare and all-inclusive resort stay,” said Kevin Hernandez, Vice President of Sales and Digital Strategy at Vacation Express.  “These affordable vacation packages will give our vacationers a deserved break from the rising cost of international traveling.”

 Cancun and Riviera Maya non-stop flights begin on March 14, 2015. These six-night packages to Cancun will depart Saturday mornings and return on Friday evenings through August 1, 2015. The Interjet-operated flights offers comfortable main cabin seats with more leg room than standard economy seating. These packages are a perfect choice for families and couples looking to get away for an affordable week in the sun. 

 Non-stop flights to Punta Cana are operated by Swift Air, LLC and begin taking to the skies on March 16, 2015 for six-night stays departing in the morning on Mondays and returning on Sunday afternoons, allowing almost a full week of endless beaches and crystalline, tropical waters. When you travel with Swift Air, LLC, you can also affordably upgrade to 2x2 First Class seating.

 Grand Bahama Island non-stop flights kick off on July 4, 2015, with 4-night packages available on various days until August 3, 2015. These Sunwing Airlines operated flights will depart early morning and return late afternoon, allowing for maximum beach time and each flight comes with Sunwing Airlines’ award winning “Champagne Service” and the option to upgrade to Elite Plus for extra leg room and an extra 44lbs of free checked luggage for an additional fee. Perfect for a quick, affordable escape.

 “The addition of nonstop flights to Punta Cana by Vacation Express, and their return to Port Columbus with seasonal flights to Cancun and Grand Bahama Island, demonstrates the demand for quality air service in our Columbus region. Vacation Express is a well-known and established tour operator and we’re pleased to collaborate with them on these seasonal offerings,” said Elaine Roberts, President & CEO of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority.
