Apple Vacations unveiled 11 new charter flights to Mexico and the Caribbean from multiple U.S. gateways, increasing by 15 percent year-over-year the company’s volume of flights out of the U.S. for winter 2012-13. Apple will also expand operations into three new markets: Austin, Texas; Des Moines, Iowa; and Kansas City, Mo.
New winter exclusive vacation flights include the following origination points: Austin to Cancun, Mexico; Detroit to Montego Bay, Jamaica; Des Moines to Cancun; Hartford, Conn. to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic; Kansas City, Mo., to Cancun; Kansas City to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Kansas City to Los Cabos, Mexico; Lansing, Mich., to Puerto Vallarta; Minneapolis to Huatulco, Mexico; Rockford, Ill., to Montego Bay; and St. Louis to Huatulco.
“We are always looking for new ways to offer new vacation experiences to our customers,” said Tim Mullen, Apple Vacations president. “Extensive consumer research and input from travel agents helps us to determine what new, nonstop flights to offer to ‘which’ destinations from ‘what city’. We try to make our customer’s vacation experience the best it can be — and many times it starts with ‘where they want to go’ and how easily they can get there. This is where that experience begins.” Apple Vacations works with Sun Country Airlines, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue Airways and AirTran Airways.
