Buffalo, Fall in Love with Cancun All Over Again

Non-stop charters from Buffalo to Cancun begin February 14th

ATLANTA, Ga. – January 27, 2016 – Vacation Express is happy to announce non-stop flights to Cancun from Buffalo just in time for Valentine’s Day! Cancun marks the second destination to be included in Vacation Express’ winter seasonal program from Buffalo Niagara International Airport, in addition to Punta Cana. Flights to Cancun are leaving every Sunday beginning February 14, 2016 through May 1, 2016 while weekly flights to Punta Cana have already begun and will continue through May 7, 2016.

 “Having two non-stop weekly flights to exotic Cancun and Punta Cana is a great opportunity to trade the winter cold of Buffalo Niagara for the warm breezes and sandy beaches of the tropics,” said William R. Vanecek, the BNIA’s Director of Aviation.  “Now is the perfect time to take advantage of these low fares and non-stop flights to enjoy all that Cancun and Punta Cana have to offer."   

 The first Cancun flight of 2016 is already filled with passengers ready to escape the freezing temperatures of the north for the 80-degree paradise south of the border. “Now that Buffalo has seen snow, the bookings are pouring in and both the website and telephones have been seeing record volumes – these flights are definitely priced right so people should grab these deals while they can,” says Kevin Hernandez, Vice President of Sales and Digital Marketing.

 Vacation Express’ non-stop flights are operated by Sunwing Airlines on state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800 series aircraft which seat 189 passengers. These value-packed flights enable travelers to start off their vacation in style with a complimentary welcome glass of sparkling wine. 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 up to 44lbs is free. Those who upgrade to Elite Plus for only $39 each way will receive extra leg room, advanced seat selection, separate check-in, priority boarding and baggage handling as well as an additional weight allowance on their free checked bag, for a total of 66lbs.
