TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwired - May 31, 2016) - With new non-stops set to link John F. Kennedy International Airport and the Tucson International Airport beginning October 7, 2016, The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain has unveiled a new welcome package for luxury travelers arriving on the new daily flights -- which were announced this week by American Airlines.

Beginning in October and continuing to December 22, 2016, the Arizona resort's City Lights to Starry Nights package will offer overnight Tucson accommodations, breakfast for two in the resort's CORE Kitchen & Wine Bar, and a daily resort credit of $50 USD. Priced from $409 USD per night, the limited-edition hotel package also will include an arrival amenity of two "Make Your Own Manhattans" in honor of the new year-round service between New York and Tucson.

"We are thrilled to share this great news with our many guests from the New York metropolitan area," said Liam Doyle, General Manager, The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain. "Our east coast visitors love visiting the desert in fall and winter, when they can relax, golf, enjoy the spa and experience the memorable culinary offerings of our resort, all under Tucson's famously sunny blue skies."

The JFK-TUS service arrives in an ideal season for desert travelers, when spectacularly temperate and clear weather offers prime golf conditions, starry nights perfect for astronomer-led stargazing, and optimal timing for the 850-acre property's sought-after hiking, walking, birdwatching, exploring and geocaching experiences. In addition, this fall's enticing holiday festivities will showcase the mountain resort's famous Dine-In Gingerbread House, along with rejuvenating seasonal treatments at one of the top three spas in the United States, and dining opportunities highlighted by sushi, southwest comfort cuisine and international delights. The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain is also home to the award-winning Ritz Kids Ranger Programs, along with three year-round swimming pools, including one with a splash pad and 235-foot water slide, and a private spa serenity pool featuring its own tanning island.

Named by Travel + Leisure as one of the top 100 hotels in the world, The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain is located between Phoenix/Scottsdale and Tucson, and is accessible from the international airports serving both of those cities.
