New flight will connect Rhode Island with Cancun

Share This
A new route has been added at T.F. Green Airport, the Rhode Island Airport Corporation announced Tuesday morning.

Vacationers will now be able to fly to Cancun using Vacation Express’ non-stop flights operated by Swift Air LLC. Flights aboard a Boeing 737-300 series aircraft will be made available weekly during the month of July beginning July 7 and ending July 28, according to officials.

RIAC say roundtrip ticket prices are $399.

“This is excellent news for our customers. In less than three weeks, we have announced seven new international routes from Green Airport: 6 to Europe and one to the Caribbean,” said Jon Savage, president of the RIAC Board.

Rhode Island Airport Corporation spokeswoman Patti Goldstein says the announcement’s timing was “purely coincidental,” but there’s nothing like a little sun.

Vacation Express is a tour operator based in Atlanta.

Low-cost carrier Norwegian Air Shuttle also recently announced new routes to Europe this summer from Rhode Island.
