YourFlorida.com plan weekly Glasgow airport - Florida flight
Budget airline Excel Airways will fly between Glasgow airport and Orlando Sanford this winter, if online firm yourflorida.com, who plan to charter the flight, get regulatory approval for the route. Excel will operate a weekly flight on behalf of the online firm, with prices starting at £149 one way.
Jim Whitelaw, director of yourfloridaair.com, said: 'There are 4 or 5 flights a week between Glasgow and Tenerife this winter, but not a single flight to Florida. We are anticipating a high demand for the route because of the competitive prices. The first 4 flights are already fully booked.'
The new route, which is due to start in October, will be between Glasgow airport and Orlando Sanford. Sanford is the preferred destination for charter flights, and is just over an hour from Orlando.
Yourfloridaair.com is waiting for final confirmation of the flight licence from the Civil Aviation Authority. Customers can visit the website to book flights. A telephone booking hotline will be set up once the flights receive regulatory approval.
The company charges an annual membership of £15, which the firm says allows them to keep costs down, but this does not guarantee a flight.
