More flights to Orlando from April

Travel to Orlando is going to get easier…

Britons wanting to travel abroad to see the famous tourist sites of Orlando in the US will have more choice from next spring, a Scandinavian airline has announced this week.

Norwegian says it is offering a once-a-week Saturday service to Orlando, Florida, from Gatwick beginning April 4.

In addition to this £199 trip, Norwegian is also doubling its weekly Gatwick flights to New York’s JFK airport and Los Angeles to six and four flights respectively.

Other new routes include Stockholm (Sweden) – Oakland/San Francisco, Oslo (Norway) – Los Angeles and Copenhagen (Denmark) – Orlando.

Norwegian has announced that its 787 Dreamliner stable will increase to eight by next spring.

It will also have sufficient capacity to increase its numbers of departures on current journeys, says Thomas Ramdahl, the carrier’s chief commercial official.

Mr Ramdahl says that Orlando has already established itself as a favourite destination out of Oslo and that Norwegian looks forward to enabling more travellers to visit one of Florida’s most popular cities.

Florida may be hotter than hot in the summer, but that doesn’t stop thousands of Brits making the trip each year.

Attractions including Disneyland and Universal Studios, excellent discount malls, and famous beaches such as Daytona, Cocoa and Clearwater make it a trip to remember.
