CHANGES Are Coming to the Orlando Airport

The Orlando International Airport (MCO) has received lots of feedback (both positive and negative) on the newly constructed Terminal C — the largest terminal in the Orlando Airport that stretches over half a mile and is filled with state-of-the-art security, delicious dining, and architecture inspired by the sky itself.

According to the Orlando Airport’s website, MCO is already preparing to take Terminal C to new heights. MCO was recently awarded $69 million in federal funds for two Terminal C expansion projects. The Federal Aviation Administration awards nearly $1 billion to airports across the country for projects that improve the passenger experience. MCO was one of approximately 100 airports in the country to receive funding.

So, which projects are now being funded? Well, to start, MCO will receive $49 million for the Terminal C Phase 1 Expansion Project, which will provide four new Multiple Aircraft Ramp System gates, allowing “either four wide body or eight narrow body aircraft” to be served at the gate.

This will allow even more passengers to be served in Terminal C in a shorter amount of time.

Further, $20 million will be awarded to MCO to partially fund a 450-foot enclosed pedestrian bridge, which will allow passengers to walk directly from the Train Station to Terminal C. Many passengers complained that the walk to and from Terminal C was ridiculously long, taking nearly 15 minutes one-way to get back to the Train. This addition could make navigating the airport easier!
