Brightline's much anticipated service to and from Orlando International Airport will begin on Sept. 22, 2023. With the station's launch, the intercity rail line will offer residents and visitors service between Miami and Orlando, with stops in Aventura, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, and West Palm Beach.
"Opening Orlando fulfills our ultimate business model," said Patrick Goddard, president of Brightline. "We have seen incredible enthusiasm from the business and tourism industries eager to travel between Central and South Florida."
For a limited time, Brightline is offering one-way SMART fares starting at $79 for adults and $39 for kids. One-way PREMIUM fares (includes check luggage and complimentary snacks and beverages) start at $149.
Brightline is eager to work with travel advisors and currently offers a trade sign up for discounted rates. The line expects to offer commissionable fares in the near future, and to be bookable on GDS by the end of 2023.
