I think they are just a travel agency. When looking on the web site provided above I found the airline is a charter airline called Pace.

The website said Vacation Express is the carrier which is a chartered flight service whatever that is.

I checked over on the Transportation Boards under Vacation Express and the feelings seemed to be mixed about them.

Still, it's a good deal.

If I understand correctly Vacation Express & Pace are one in the same, maybe a merger. I have plans to fly with them the first week of Oct. Would welcome any news.

Great price on flights, thanks for sharing the info (wish I had seen it first).

PACE- I think is HOOTERS air!
You better check with your wife before you book this flight!!!

(They do not fly to MCO from Baltimore so I don't know if this it really is PACE or if they are doing a test program to MCO)

The offer is for the Sanford airport, not MCO.

Angel - please let us know about your experience when you return.

CheapMom - SFB is a bit northeast of Orlando. I had looked it up online once, but can't find my printout right now. I think driving time was 30-45 minutes from DW. They have shuttle services available and several rental car companies. I've decided to rent a car (one way/one day) to drive to DW so I can stop by a grocery store and purchase snacks, water, etc. for a 7-day stay and then use a shuttle service on return to airport. I'll be traveling alone with 3-year old daughter and it's just too hard to try to carry these grocery items on an airplane, but yet too expensive to purchase every snack, water, etc. at parks/hotel.

poohj80 - yes, I'll gladly share upon return.

it is hooters air, however the plane flying into sanford is not a "hooter's" plane. I just got quoted $416 roundtrip for four people. Not bad....
