Strange that TUI flies to Miami only in Summer. Miami is rather a winter destination for Americans trying to escape the cold of the Northern cities of New York and Chicago!
I don’t think many Americans take TUI to fly from New York or Chicago to Miami. :roll:
The relevance of the Americans is lost to me too, but I get the point. It's a nice winter sun destination, also to find some nice hot temperatures during our winter. It indeed seems strange that TUI decides to fly to Miami in arguably the least favourable season for traveling to Florida.

I think you would be surprised !!

Last winter several planes & crews were based in USA (and Canada) to fly US and Cdn people to the South.
Mexico , Caribean,.. maybe also Miami, Orlando ? Wet lease I guess.

Maybe some TUI crew can give more details.

I only meant that Americans rather fly to Miami in winter. And, after all, maybe they fly on a TUI aircraft leased to an American or Canadian airline for the winter :D

It was clear what you ment, but the fact that New Yorkers fly to Miami is not relevant when discussing the viability of BRU-MIA during the winter season. Some may even fly on a wet leased TUI aircraft, but that isn’t relevant either.
If there would be a market for BRU MIA in winter TUI or someone else would operate it for sure.
Why always be negative? An airline operates a seasonal intercontinental flight and people are moaning it’s not year round, using absurd arguments. Pfff! Rant over.

Apple vacation (USA) and Sunwing (Canada) need extra capacity in winter time. TUIfly has too many planes in low season and therefore leases some of them to those carriers. That's it. None of the passengers carried on those operators are related to TUI.

You have to force it in TUI booking system but indeed they head back to Miami from 4 April 2020, 2 times per week, on Tuesday and Saturday, until 24 October 2020.

Well, TUI flies to Miami when passengers want to go to Miami, and that's in summer.
Quite simple.

It’s been a long time since I’ve had my last experience with the Moroccan side of their operation, but the last time I did, crew composition was mixed. Usually one BE pilot and one local pilot, or a full BE flight deck. Cabin crew was mixed as well, usually one BE CCM and two or three, dependant on aircraft type, local CCMs.
Quite a fun experience, honestly.

Yes exactly. "Has been" a TUI base for 13 years. Jet4you started in 2006, since then nothing changed in the operations except the colors of the planes and the AOC, which "has been" TUI BE since 2012. FCM have always been from Belgium (+ contract pilots based in Morocco) and CCM's from Morocco.

Tuifly seems to be flying again from BRU to Ohrid, North Macedonia as from 06JUN20 until 05SEP20. Looks like triangular flight with Tivat.
Was it announced with other destinations?
