First long haul Florida bound Dreamliner takes off from Doncaster Sheffield Airport
Apparently TUI’s Doncaster store sells more holidays to Florida than any other store in the country!
Doncaster Sheffield Airport
It’s not surprising therefore that they have now launched a new TUI Airways Dreamliner flight from Doncaster Sheffield airport to Orlando Sanford in Florida. The Boeing 787 took off for the first flight at 10:30 on 4 May 2019 with excited passengers and crew on board.
TUI marked the exciting milestone with celebrations throughout the morning for customers. This included a Disney-themed party in the departure lounge so customers could start making holiday memories from the moment they stepped into the airport. One lucky TUI customer even won a £2000 TUI holiday voucher.
The weekly flight to Sanford, Florida is part of TUI’s strategy to ensure customers across the UK can fly from their local airport and stay at the best hotels in some of the most exciting destinations around the world.
Dawn Wilson, Managing Director of TUI Airways said: “We are so excited to be launching flights from Doncaster Sheffield to Florida today as we know how popular Florida is for UK holidaymakers and the importance of flying from a local airport.
“We’re always looking at ways to provide a seamless, end-to-end experience for our customers, which is why we continue to introduce more and more fantastic destinations from regional airports.
“We are also delighted to be announcing a brand-new summer 2020 route from Doncaster Sheffield to Girona, a popular Spanish destination which will operate alongside another long-haul favourite Cancun, Mexico. We are confident customers will benefit from our continued growth at Doncaster Sheffield airport.”
We’re yet to visit Florida, but with the possibility of a local flight, I think it just got a lot easier. We love flying from Doncaster Sheffield Airport, so this is great news for families!
