Orlando International is the second busiest airport in Florida and the main Orlando airport for scheduled flights from the UK (charter holiday flights head for Orlando Sanford Airport). The airport is an important entry point for UK holidaymakers heading for Florida beach resorts and the legendary Disney and Universal theme parks. Fares are always among the lowest to the USA from the UK. This is a large modern airport with a wide choice of shopping and dining options.
Orlando International is well served from the UK, with routes from London and a choice of regional airports. Flying from a regional airport need not necessarily add a great deal to the price of the fare.
This is a very popular route. Strong competition between airlines keeps prices reasonably low. Airlines worth investigating include United Airlines, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Aer Lingus, KLM, Lufthansa, Air Canada, flybe, Delta and Air France.
The cheapest flights often depart from Belfast International, London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Manchester, Glasgow International and Birmingham.
Many of the cheapest flights are indirect. For reasonably priced direct flights try British Airways and Virgin Atlantic. Most direct flights depart from Manchester, London Gatwick and Glasgow International.
