Tui has announced it will be flying to a new Florida airport in 2022.
The operator will be flying a new route to Orlando Melbourne International airport (MLB), using long-haul Boeing 787 Dreamliner, in just more than three years’ time.
It will also be partnering with the airport to extend a terminal, which will include new passenger amenities, family-friendly entertainment and a welcome from international ambassadors with a glass of Florida orange juice.
The airport will be investing millions of dollars in the terminal enhancements.
“Our new Orlando gateway will be perfectly situated to offer Tui UK customers total flexibility in designing their holiday around any combination of theme parks, beaches or cruising,” said Dawn Wilson, Tui Airway’s managing director.
Orlando Melbourne International executive director Greg Donovan added: “Tui’s proven product combined with MLB’s exceptional concierge services will make for an unprecedented customer experience for UK holidaymakers traveling to Florida.”
Orlando Melbourne International Airport is the closest airport to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and Port Canaveral.
