ATLANTA, Jan. 24, 2019 — On Wednesday, January 23, 2019, Vacation Express’ first non-stop flight to Punta Cana operated by Sunwing Airlines departed from Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) and landed at Punta Cana International Airport. Travelers left the sub-freezing temperatures behind for the sunny Dominican Republic, where the afternoon temperatures in Punta Cana hover in the mid-70s.

Vacation Express PR & Social Media Manager, Pamela Caltabiano, was present to greet the excited travelers and serve them celebratory cake, assorted fruit and pastries prior to their flight. “It is wonderful to be able to connect with our travelers and see the joy on their faces knowing that in just four short hours they will be relaxing in the Dominican paradise that is Punta Cana.”  

All Vacation Express public charter flights from Detroit to Punta Cana are operated by Sunwing Airlines on a Boeing 737-800 series aircraft. All travelers enjoyed in-flight amenities such as in-flight entertainment, a non-alcoholic beverage, a snack, kids packs for young children, a complimentary full-size carry-on bag and the ability to purchase additional food and drink options through Sunwing Cafe. Some travelers chose to upgrade their experience with money-saving bundles starting at $59 for VE Plus which includes advanced seat selection in the front ten rows of the aircraft, a hot meal and snack, two free alcoholic beverages, a free checked bag (up to 50lbs.) and priority check-in and boarding. Other passengers opted to pay $75 for Sunwing Plus which offers all the same perks of VE Plus including advanced seat selection in the first five rows of the aircraft and up to 4” of extra legroom.
