Virgin Atlantic is increasing the number of flights from Belfast International Airport, as it announces its biggest ever season operating from the city.

From 2018, the airline’s Belfast to Orlando route will run from March to September, more than trebling the number of seats from the Northern Irish capital to the sunshine state.

The carrier is this year celebrating 25 years of flying from the UK to Orlando, having flown millions of customers since the route launched and to celebrate, both Belfast International and Glasgow Airport have seen expansions in their Orlando flying programme.

A Boeing 747-400 aircraft will operate next summer’s Belfast to Orlando service on Mondays commencing on March 26 – September 4, with an additional service on Fridays between June 22 and July 13.

The aircraft will be configured with 14 Upper Class seats, 66 Premium Economy seats and 375 seats in Economy.
