Leading Northern Ireland tour operator TUI has today announced it will operate four departures from Belfast to Florida in June and July 2023. TUI will operate its own Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft on the non-stop Belfast route to Melbourne Orlando International Airport on 22nd & 29th June and 6th and 13th July 2023 offering fourteen-night holidays in Orlando. Orlando, one of Florida’s biggest cities and suitably known as the theme park capital of the world, is a beacon destination for young and old alike looking for thrill seeking and fun holiday-making memories to last a lifetime. As well as a variety of theme, wildlife and water parks, Orlando also boasts a fantastic shopping scene with a host of shopping malls and outlets. Added to this, the themed restaurants and lively nightlife make it an ideal holiday destination.
With TUI, Northern Ireland holidaymakers will have a choice of over 80 hotels for their stay in Florida ranging from Universal Orlando Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, International Drive as well as Kissimmee, Lake Buena Vista and the beach resort of Cocoa Beach in the heart of Florida’s Space Coast.
Speaking about the welcome addition of its Florida programme, Craig Morgan, Head of Ireland for TUI, said, “We are very excited to welcome Florida into our Summer 23 programme from Belfast International on our own Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The appetite for travel is stronger than ever and customers who may not have travelled abroad at all, or as much as they would’ve liked over the last two years, are now planning well ahead into next year and choosing holidays that provide lifelong family memories and satisfy bucket list dreams. This non-stop flight from Belfast to Melbourne Orlando provides the perfect opportunity to explore the sunshine state next summer.”
Uel Hoey from Belfast International Airport adds: “The expansion of TUI destinations to include Florida from Belfast International is a welcome addition for holidaymakers across Northern Ireland. The addition of a transatlantic route to Florida boosts our connectivity to one of the most sought-after holiday destinations in the world. This enables us to offer more choice and convenience for passengers with non-stop flights from their local airport. We know that people are excited to travel again, and we are delighted to be the first part of their holiday experience before they reach Florida.”
