AN AWARD-WINNING Newtownabbey based tour operator is expanding its fleet of coaches to cope with tourist demand.

The opening of landmarks such as Titanic Belfast and the Causeway Visitors’ Centre, as well as the upcoming Irish Open golf tournament, has been good news for Jordanstown husband and wife team Rodney and Caroline McComb, who established their tour company 16 years ago.

McComb’s Executive Travel and Tours, which last month scooped the top accolade for ‘2012 Coach Operator of the Year’ at the Federation of Passenger Transport Awards, started off with just a small Volkswagen Caravelle in 1996 offering airport transfers for hotels and private passengers tours from Belfast to the Giant’s Causeway. Last year the operator boasted of over 25,000 passengers.
