Vacation Express has announced it will return with their seasonal, nonstop flights from Newark Liberty International Airport to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and Cancun, Mexico

Weekly service to Cancun is currently available every Saturday through August 19, while flights to Punta Cana are scheduled to take-off every Sunday from April 9 to August 20.

Flights to Cancun will be operated by Volaris on an A320 series aircraft. The value-packed flights will enable travelers to sit back and relax while enjoying a complimentary non-alcoholic beverage, snack and in-flight entertainment. Flights to Punta Cana will be operated by Dominican Wings on an A320, also providing travelers with a complimentary non-alcoholic beverage and snack. 

All travelers will be permitted one free carry-on bag and the option to purchase add-ons like Preferred Seating starting at $20 or Elite Plus starting at $39 each way and can bundle options which include checked luggage for the best value.

Travelers can purchase roundtrip airfare, but most are booking 6-night packages with air and staying at all-inclusive resorts. Packages to both destinations can be booked on line at or by calling 1-800-309-4717.

The news comes on the heels of Vacation Express’ recent announcement of new flights from Nashville to Montego Bay, Jamaica. Those flights will depart weekly on Mondays for six-night programs from July 10 through August 7.

Nashville has continued to be a robust travel market showing strong growth with its annual return of seasonal flights to Cancun, Punta Cana and Grand Bahama Island.
