Sunwing Airline has announced direct nonstop flights to Punta Cana from New Orleans and Buffalo for tourists booking its affiliate Vacation Express packages.
US travelers can now travel to Punta Cana direct from New Orleans’ Louis Armstrong International Airport. The Vacation Express tour company, based in Atlanta, announced the non-stop flights beginning 14 May to 27 August 2015.
The Buffalo-Punta Cana flights are scheduled to start on 14 February 2015 running through 9 May. Many Canadians residing in southern Ontario prefer to use the Buffalo Niagara International Airport for travel instead of the Toronto international airport.
The airline uses a 189-passenger Boeing 737-400 Sunwing Airline aircraft.
The flights depart on Saturday afternoon and offer passengers a return trip seven days later. Hotel/air fare packages start at US$799.
Buffalo is seen as a strong winter vacation market and covers the region from Syracuse to Erie, Pennsylvania.
