Travellers will have a choice of more than 80 hotels for their trip, including stays at Universal Orlando, Walt Disney World and Cocoa Beach.

Craig Morgan, head of Ireland for Tui, said: “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 to 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, said: “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.”
