The introduction of these new vacation packages for Vacation Express’ seventh season in New Orleans reaffirms the city’s desire for new routes to tropical destinations.

We know our vacation packages to the popular cities of Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Negril will be a success, as we have had requests from many passengers and travel agents in the area who are looking for great deals to this popular Caribbean destination.”

In addition to the new service to Jamaica, Vacation Express returns their seasonal service to Punta Cana from MSY for both four and six-night packages. The four-night packages to Punta Cana will depart every Thursday from May 23, 2019 to June 27, 2019 and the six-night packages will depart every Friday from May 24, 2019 to July 26, 2019. As with all of Vacation Express’ exclusive, non-stop flights, both the service to Punta Cana and to Jamaica will feature early morning departures and late afternoon returns in order to maximize time spent on the beach.

Vacation Express’ non-stop flights to Jamaica and Punta Cana are operated by Swift Air, LLC. on Boeing 737 series aircraft. These value-packed flights enable travelers to sit back and relax while enjoying a complimentary non-alcoholic beverage and snack.
