Travelers can easily escape the fall doldrums this year with an exhilarating escape to Cancun thanks to a new fare sale from United and US Airways. Both airlines are offering steep discounts, up to 35% in some cases, on flights from select Midwestern destinations to Cancun: Cincinnati, Cleveland, Milwaukee, Omaha and Salt Lake City.
United began the sale on the evening of August 6 and, less than a day later, US Airways lowered their prices to match those of United on their shared routes.
The sale applies to flights departing from this fall to next February. Most of the flights to Cancun currently on sale are connecting flights – Cleveland offers non-stop flights to Cancun – that offer total travel times ranging from 6 hours to 12 hours.
Travelers should book soon, however, as we don't expect the sale to last longer than one week, as these types of flash fare sales are typically short lasting.
