Orlando International Airport Traffic Increased by 10%

Orlando International Airport Terminal

For the first time, Orlando International Airport (MCO) has recorded over 47 million annual passengers during a rolling 12-month period ending in November 2018.

“This is a significant milestone in Orlando International Airport’s history because it shows the sustained strength of the Central Florida economy,” says Phil Brown, Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “With over 47 million annual passengers and growing, we must continue to plan and build for future growth, following the vision that was established more than three decades ago.”

Sparking much of the growth in October and November was increased seat capacity by the airlines that serve MCO. In October alone, seat capacity grew by more than 343 thousand seats into Orlando with Spirit, Southwest, United, JetBlue and American Airlines leading the way. November also saw an increase in Thanksgiving passengers. AAA named the Orlando area as the most popular destination in the country for the holiday.
