AUSTIN, Texas – Vacation Express inaugurated new nonstop service between Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic on June 4, 2018. Inaugural ceremonies included a live music performance by Paul Morris, a ribbon cutting, cake and remarks from airline officials.

“Vacation Express is proud to be able to provide travelers in Austin and the surrounding area with the first non-stop flights to Punta Cana. While Vacation Express has provided exclusive, non-stop flights to the Caribbean from Dallas and Houston, it became clear that Austin would be a natural and integral part of our growth due to demand for more non-stop routes to this popular destination,” said Kevin Hernandez, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Vacation Express.
Swift Air will operate the flights, arriving and departing from the Barbara Jordan Terminal from June 4 – Aug. 6, 2018, on a 150 seat B737-400 aircraft with first-class seating.
