ATLANTA, June 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vacation Express is happy to announce the return of weekly non-stop flights from Kansas City International Airport to Punta Cana beginning February 15, 2019 through July 26, 2019. Flights will depart on Fridays for 6-night vacation packages.

Vacation Express offers the only non-stop flight from Kansas City to Punta Cana, providing travelers the quickest escape to the beach possible for the second consecutive year. “Vacation Express’ decision to return for their second season at Kansas City International Airport is great news for leisure fliers in the four-state region,” said Director of Aviation Pat Klein. “Punta Cana has become the most popular Caribbean destination for passengers flying from KCI who know there’s no better way to start a vacation than on a non-stop flight.”

These non-stop flights are operated by Miami Air International on a Boeing 737-800 series aircraft. Travelers’ vacation starts upon boarding these value-packed flights, with a complimentary non-alcoholic beverage and snack. Each passenger is allowed one free carry-on bag and the option to purchase a seat upgrade at a great price. Starting from $45 each way, the Preferred Plus upgrade includes two complimentary alcoholic beverages, a snack box, seating in the first rows for quick boarding and deplaning and a checked bag weighing up to 50lbs. The First-Class upgrade offers extra legroom and priority check-in and boarding in addition to the Preferred Plus inclusions.

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. Packages can be booked online at VACATIONEXPRESS.com, by calling 1-800-309-4717 or through a local travel agent.
