Tour operator Vacation Express, a division of Sunwing Travel Group, will offer seasonal service from Richmond, Va., to Cancun, starting May 19 and operating through Aug. 31.

Vacation packages and all-inclusive programs to Cancun start at $899 and include nonstop flight, hotel, taxes and the services of a local Vacation Express representative.

The Richmond-Cancun flight will be operated by Aeromexico on a 737-700 seating 124 passengers.

The Cancun trip will operate on Mondays from Richmond, returning from Cancun on Sundays.

The Cancun service is classified as a charter flight. A ticket for air travel only can be purchased, although “most travelers will buy the package deal because it is cheaper,” according to Mavian Arocha-Rowe, Vacation Express spokeswoman.
