You’ve watched everything on Netflix and Hulu and now Peacock is starting to look like a good idea. Your sock drawer couldn’t be any more organized. It’s time to get out of your house and get back on the road.
“Airfares are at a 25-year low and new routes and carriers are starting at CVG so it is a good time to plan and book that trip,” says Mindy Kershner, CVG spokesperson.
In just the past nine days, two new carriers, Sun Country Airlines and Alaska Airlines, have begun flying out of CVG. United is adding service to four new leisure destinations later this month, with Southwest, Allegiant, and VivaAerobus adding flights and destinations as well.
“There is a gradual recovery in travel demand as vaccinations increase, most in the form of leisure travel,” says Kershner. “So far this year, we are serving 52% of 2019 passenger volumes and we expect the summer to be at 70-80%.”
The choice isn’t when to go, it’s where.
Sun Country Airlines, now offering nonstop service to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, operates a total of 93 routes across 69 airports in the United States, Mexico, Central America and Caribbean. Sun Country’s passenger experience includes low-cost airfares, free in-flight entertainment and reclining seats. Fittingly for an airline based in Minnesota, Sun Country prides itself on warm and friendly customer service.
From the MSP hub, CVG travelers can take flight to Sun Country’s most recently added destinations, including Grand Cayman, Punta Gorda, Florida, and Turks and Caicos.
Alaska Airlines now offers non-stop service to Seattle, with award-winning service, hundreds of free movies and TV shows available on personal devices, and free texting on most flights.
Cincinnati is Alaska’s 95th nonstop destination from Seattle. From there, travelers can reach other West Coast destinations or Hawaii. But Seattle is also a gateway to Asia, through the oneworld global alliance with additional airline partners–guests can connect to nonstop flights to Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong and Singapore.
VivaAerobus, Latin America’s lowest cost airline and one of the fastest growing carriers in the world, begins nonstop service to Los Cabos, Mexico on May 29.
If you’re planning to visit one of your favorite vacation destinations, later this month United begins non-stop flights to Hilton Head Island, Pensacola, Charleston, and Portland, Maine. With the news that CVG’s average fare is at a 25-year low, and nearly 10 percent less than the national average, decided to fly rather than drive to a beach destination just got a lot easier.
