The trio of international cities like Paris, Rio de Janeiro and Santiago are some of the new nonstop destinations of the Orlando International Airport this summer as the number of foreign passengers keeps on increasing.
Several international flights to different cities where Orlando have never had its flight services or were cut back years ago have been added by the airlines to establish its return, as per the officials confirm. Later on in the forthcoming months, three nonstop flights to Haiti and Switzerland are scheduled to begin service.
To quote Vicki Jaramillo, the airport’s senior director for marketing and air-service development, “It takes a long time time to cultivate.For them to add a new service, it’s not something they’ve thought about last month. It’s been planned for years.”
According to a spokeswoman, at the Orlando Sanford International Airport, new year-round nonstop service to Aruba began in April, operating up to twice a week.
The increase highlights European Union and Latin American airlines view Orlando as a first-rate tourist destination, said airline industry consultant Robert Mann.
However, few experts cautioned and said that the future of these new flights is uncertain.
“Summer is high season, and some of these are experimental and may not last into the winter,” said Mann, who is based in New York.
To quote George Hobica, founder of airfarewatchdog.com, ‘One concern with the new flights: If there are too many seats to fill, airlines will undercut each other’s fares and could struggle to make a profit.’
