VACATION Express, an associated company of US-based Sunwing Travel Group, will commence non-stop flights from New Orleans in the United States to Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, Jamaica as part of a six-night vacation package.

The offer, which becomes available on May 25, will depart the Louis Armstrong International Airport every Saturday through to June 22, 2019.

“Every little thing is truly going to be 'alright', with six-night packages to Jamaica as low as US$879 [and], up to US$800 in resort credits and Kids Stay, Play and Eat Free options!” the company said in a news release. “Exclusive low prices allow travellers to focus on the experience and not the expense — whether they're booking a family vacation or romantic, adults-only package,” it continued.

In addition to flights to Jamaica, Vacation Express will commence weekly summer flights to Punta Cana, departing Thursdays from May 23, 2019 to June 27, 2019 for four-night packages as well as Friday departures for six-night packages beginning May 24, 2019 and lasting through July 26, 2019.

The company noted that these unique offers give travellers the opportunity to pay less and play more while in paradise.

“All of Vacation Express' exclusive, non-stop flights to both Punta Cana and to Jamaica will feature early morning departures and late afternoon returns to make the most of beach and bonding time,” it said.

Vacation Express' non-stop flights to Jamaica and Punta Cana are operated by Swift Air, LLC on a Boeing 737-series aircraft. With the offers, Vacation Express hopes to capitalise on travelers looking to take advantage of vacation packages with air and all-inclusive resort stays.

According to the tour operator, the flights offer travelers a complimentary non-alcoholic beverage and snack, one free carry-on bag and an optional seat upgrade.

“Affordable flight add-ons start at only US$25 each way for preferred exit-row seats or US$45 each way with the preferred plus upgrade, which includes two complimentary alcoholic beverages, a snack box, roomy front-row seating and a free checked bag weighing up to 50lbs.

“Flights to Punta Cana will also offer first-class seating for only US$129 each way, which includes preferred plus perks as well as two-by-two seating with extra legroom and priority check-in and boarding,” the company said.

Based in Atlanta, Vacation Express, part of Sunwing Travel Group, is a tour operator specialising in quality, affordable vacation packages to over 30 destinations in the Caribbean, Mexico and Costa Rica. Now in business for over 25 years, Vacation Express touts itself as one of the country's largest and most trusted tour operators.
