For those looking to head south of the border to visit friends and families—or just to explore—Volaris has you covered. The airline is now looking to link the theme park capital of the world—Orlando—with the capital of Mexico—Mexico City.
The new flights will run a couple times per week thanks to a little help from some of their Airbus A320s beginning around July 14. It looks like Volaris doesn’t expect this new option to be too popular, as they’re already planning to cut back to one time per week as soon as September. So if you just need to visit Mickey Mouse, or if you’re looking to head down to Mexico for a little bit of excursion—Volaris will get you there, and for cheap.
· Cape Air:
You know we’re all about island hopping up in New England—especially Nantucket—but flying up to Cape Cod wouldn’t be too shabby. Thankfully Cape Air has just started up some seasonal service between White Plains, New York—just outside the city—and Provincetown, Massachusetts.
The flights are already up and running and will do their thing between now and September 10. Be sure to pack your bravery in your carry-on bag, as Cessna 402s are the planes that are scheduled to head back and forth. There’s only nine seats on each plane, so we’re sure you will become quick friends with your fellow passengers. Sure you’ll be avoiding plenty of traffic, but be prepared to pay for the convenience, as round trip fares seem to start around $500.
When compared to other exotic warm weather destinations in the Caribbean and beyond we kind of overlook some of the classics. AeroMexico is hoping to change that, as they’re ready to remind one and all that Cancun is still a pretty darn great place to visit and relax. Beginning on July 1 AeroMexico will start flying nonstop between Cancun and New York-JFK.
The new flights leave nice and early in the morning, but with a quick four-hour flight you’ll be at that beach around 10:20am local time. We’re thinking the flight might be popular during the summer vacation season, but we’re sure once the winter months roll around the plane will pretty much become a party shuttle bus filled with plenty of sunburned tourists.
