FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -- Travel Impressions and TWA joined forces to
offer packages to Cancun, Mexico, and Punta Cana, Dominican
Republic, from New York (Kennedy and Newark).
The flights, which began Feb. 2, are aboard MD-82 planes with
room for 122 in coach and 18 in first class.
The flights and land packages are for sale exclusively through
Travel Impressions, based here. The operator is offering booking
incentives in conjunction with the new service.
In Cancun, through March 31, clients who stay at the Camino Real
Cancun, Royal Hideaway, Hyatt Cancun Caribe and Le Meridien Cancun
receive an upgrade to first class on TWA.
According to Steven Lassman, vice president of sales for Travel
Impressions, the new service to Cancun is in response to increased
demand for the Mexican Caribbean destination.
"Travel agents as well as hoteliers have requested more
scheduled airlift to both Punta Cana and Cancun to provide
customers with more convenient service," Lassman said.
From Kennedy, flights depart on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday
and Sunday at 10:55 a.m. and arrive in Cancun at 2 p.m. Return
