 GREEN BAY -- Soon, you'll be able to fly to Cancun without driving to Milwaukee first.

De Pere based airliner MetJet announced today they're starting weekly direct flights from Austin Straubel Airport to Cancun, Mexico starting on December 7th. The flights will stop in Florida for a customs check and refueling before continuing on to Mexico.

MetJet Founder and CEO Mike Heisman says, " When we came to the aiport and said 'Hey we're really looking at something special how's the demand for Cancun?' And Cancun always ranks in the top 20 of most requested destinations."

MetJet passengers are allowed to check two bags for free and the Cancun flight includes breakfast.

A new weekly flight to Minneapolis was also announced today.
