Buffalo Niagara International Airport Gets Non-Stop Flights to the Caribbean

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - January 16, 2015) - Tomorrow, Vacation Express will kick off the winter vacation season with their inaugural flight from Buffalo Niagara International Airport [BUF] to Cancun International Airport [CUN]. This flight is the first of weekly non-stop flights offered to travelers living in western New York and northern Pennsylvania. These weekly seven-night vacation packages to Cancun will operate through May 9, 2015.

Starting February 14, 2015, Vacation Express will add weekly non-stop flights to Punta Cana International Airport [PUJ]. These weekly, seven-night vacations will continue until May 2, 2015. Travelers from western New York state and northern Pennsylvania will be able to enjoy easier escapes to the beach this winter with the introduction of these two new services from Vacation Express.

These new routes represent the first Vacation Express non-stop international destinations to be offered from Buffalo Niagara International Airport, increasing the number of airports accessible via a direct connection from the Buffalo Niagara International Airport to 22.

Adam W. Perry, NFTA Commissioner and Chairman of the Aviation Committee, said, "This is great news for Buffalo Niagara. Having two new non-stop weekly flights to exotic Cancun and Punta Cana will create a great deal of excitement and economic benefit for the community and our airport."

The flights are operated by Sunwing Airlines' state-of-the-art 737-800 series aircraft which seat 189 passengers. These flights enable travelers to start their vacation in style with a complimentary welcome glass of champagne. They will also be able to sit back and relax while enjoying award winning onboard service along with Hot & Fresh Bistro meals served with a choice of wine plus complimentary in-flight entertainment and children's activity kits. In addition to the added perks within the cabin, each traveler's first checked bag is free. Those who upgrade to Elite Plus will receive extra leg room, advanced seat selection, separate check-in, priority boarding and baggage handling as well as an extra 22lbs of baggage free of charge.

"We are excited to be the only U.S. tour operator to provide non-stop vacation packages to the Caribbean from western New York and northern Pennsylvania areas," said Kevin Hernandez, Vice President of Sales and Digital Strategy at Vacation Express. "With this service, we can turn a flight that's more than seven hours with connections, into a non-stop four hour flight."

As guests arrive for the inaugural flight, they are greeted by the Latin sounds of the Caribbean and exotic cuisine provided by the Buffalo Niagara International Airport and a send off by notable locals.
