New Non-Stop Flights to Punta Cana From New Orleans Next Summer

ATLANTA – Vacation Express is introducing new, four-night rotations to Punta Cana from New Orleans. These exclusive, non-stop flights depart from Louis Armstrong International Airport (MSY) every Thursday starting May 24, 2018 through July 5, 2018.

Vacation Express already offers a six-night Punta Cana program departing every Friday from May 18, 2018 to July 27, 2018 in addition to a seven-night Cancun program which flies every Sunday from May 20, 2018 to July 29, 2018. There was strong feedback to offer a shorter program for those who may not be able to take a full week’s vacation.

"We are very excited to have Vacation Express back in 2018 with service from MSY to Cancun and Punta Cana," said Kevin Dolliole, Director of Aviation for Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. "With this additional service to Punta Cana, travelers have another option for experiencing an exciting Caribbean vacation.”
