Vacation Express is excited to announce the expansion of exclusive, non-stop flights to Jamaica and the continuation of non-stop flights to Punta Cana from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) beginning in early 2019. Flights to Jamaica will depart weekly on Mondays for 7 nights from January 21, 2019 through April 22, 2019, and flights to Punta Cana will depart weekly on Saturdays for 6 nights beginning February 16, 2019 through August 17, 2019. The 6-night spring flights to Jamaica will also return starting May 26, 2019 lasting through August 4, 2019.

This is the first time Vacation Express is offering winter flights to Jamaica, and the 7-night rotations departing on Mondays will be ideal for honeymooners jetting away after their weekend nuptials.

“This expanded service to Montego Bay and Punta Cana in early 2019 will make planning for that winter getaway even easier for local travelers,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, CVG. “Vacation Express is a great partner, and CVG is proud to be the largest U.S. gateway on their network with non-stop flights to five Caribbean destinations including Cancun, Cozumel, Grand Bahama Island, Montego Bay and Punta Cana.”

Flights to Jamaica will be operated by Sunwing Airlines, and flights to Punta Cana will be operated by Miami Air International, both airlines using a Boeing 737-800 aircraft. On these affordable flights, passengers can relax and enjoy a complimentary non-alcoholic beverage and snack. Travelers to Jamaica have the option to purchase add-ons like Elite Plus seating starting at $45 each way, which includes a free checked bag and additional legroom. Upgrades on Punta Cana flights include Preferred Plus seating from $45 each way, offering a free checked bag, and additional upgrade options are available.

While travelers may purchase airfare only for non-stop, roundtrip flights most travelers are booking vacation packages with air and staying at all-inclusive resorts. Additional flights to Cancun for 2019 will be announced soon. Packages can be booked online at, by calling 1-800-309-4717 or through a local travel agent.
