Atlanta – May 3, 2013 - Vacation Express is pleased to announce the opening of its fall 2013 and 2014 schedule from Cincinnati/North Kentucky International Airport (CVG) to Cancun International Airport (CUN). Vacation Express will charter an AeroMexico aircraft B737-700, which seats 112 within coach and provides 12 First Class seats. The flight offers complimentary bar, select snacks, in-flight entertainment, headsets and one free checked bag.
For the period of October 27, 2013 to February 23, 2014, Vacation Express will operate a Sunday 6 Night Program with morning departures and afternoon returns.
From March 2, 2014 to May 11, 2014 a Sunday 7 Night Program will be offered.
Vacation Express will resume use of Sunwing Airlines May 18, 2014 to October 19, 2014; the airline which is currently operating all of the CVG charter programs.
AeroMexico is currently operating the company’s Nashville to Cancun program and will also operate the new Cancun service from New Orleans effective May 26, 2013. “Vacation Express has had a long lasting relationship with AeroMexico and I am certain the company will operate a very successful program from the CVG market starting later this fall,” says Gantt Cookson, Vice-President of Operations.
Out of the Cincinnati (CVG) market, Vacation Express currently operates a Sunday 7 Night Program through October 20, 2013. From October 27, 2013 to February 23, 2014, Vacation Express will operate a Sunday Six Night Program with flights leaving CVG around 10:45 a.m. and returning from Cancun on Saturday around 4:00 p.m.
“Our flights are scheduled at times that are still very convenient for our important drive markets from Kentucky and Indiana. Traditionally, the period of November through early March is a shoulder season from the Ohio area and the Six Night Program saves clients one night at the hotel, while still being able to maximize their beach time thus creating value priced packages,” says Kevin Hernandez, Vice-President of Sales and Digital Marketing.
Effective March 2, 2014, Vacation Express will revert back to its current Sunday Seven Night Program, operated by AeroMexico through May 11, 2014 with Sunwing Airlines resuming May 18, 2014.
Flights from Cincinnati (CVG) to Punta Cana (PUJ) are on sale now until the end of October. The winter schedule from CVG to PUJ as well as charter flights from Atlanta, Nashville and New Orleans are expected to be announced in the upcoming weeks.
