TUI Airways is a German leisure travel and tourism company. It offers flights from 21 airports in the United Kingdom to more than 70 destinations in Africa, Europe, and the United States. The airline has just added flights from Dublin Airport (DUB) to Melbourne Orlando International Airport (MLB) starting next summer.

Florida Today reports that next year will be the third summer that TUI Airways is connecting Europe and Melbourne, FL nonstop. The route will be flown with a Boeing 787-8 with 47 Premium and 241 Economy Class seats. TUI has eight Boeing 787-8s and five Boeing 787-9s in its fleet. Passengers need to originate in Europe and TUI cannot sell tickets with a US origin for this route. Flights will be offered 1x weekly between June 24th and July 29th, next summer.

Dublin Airport (DUB) will be the sixth airport to fly nonstop to Melbourne Orlando International Airport (MLB). Others include:

  • Belfast International Airport (BFS)
  • Glasgow Airport (GLA)
  • London Gatwick Airport (LGW)
  • Manchester Airport (MAN)
  • Newcastle International Airport (NCL)

I had never heard of TUI until I saw this article. Apparently, the company was in the mining industry until 1997 when it changed industries and became a tourism company.

Anthony’s Take: It’s always interesting to see lesser known airlines offer holidays to Florida. While not as close to Disney World as Orlando International Airport (MCO), TUI offers a convenient way to get to Orlando nonstop.
