ACTUALLY the No1 holiday destination in the world, in terms of visitor numbers is Majorca!
Orlando is a varied market. It is largely O+D traffic, tourists and some corporates staying in or living in the Orlando area. The obvious attractions of Disney and Universal are the main pulling points.
In terms of yield, flights to the UK do well in terms of premium pax, because the UK-Orlando market is so large, there are enough pax to support for example, BA
and Virgin's premium classes. Other European markets for example, Germany have a much lower yield market, hence Condor/Thomas Cook and LTU's flights.
IMO there IS
more scope for European flights, and with Delta having a relatively large operation at MCO
, i would think a Paris CDG
flight could work, also for OUTBOUND tourism and onward connections in Europe, Asia and Africa.
Otherwise, the European market is well served, Martinair to Amsterdam, Condor/Thomas Cook and LTU to Germany, and a range of charter flights to Switzerland, Austria and Italy.
The Carribbean market is being expanded all the time, and I think we will see these routes increase in the future.
The South American market is weak at the moment, but I think there is scope for a Sao Paulo and maybe Buenos Aires service, the problem, again with this market it yield.
As far as the Asian market goes, there are more than enough connections available in Houston, Dallas, Seattle, Denver, LAX
. Whilst I think a JAL or Korean flight would go out full down the back, not sure about the seats up front.
