Orlando MCO Airport Overview

Orlando International Airport MCO serves the Florida County of Orange and the City of Orlando.  Operated by Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, it is one of the world's busiest airports and gateway to Disney World, Universal Studios, Epcot Center, Kennedy Space Center, as well as to numerous convention-ready hotels. 

MCO Airport is about nine miles southeast of dowtown Orlando (central Florida), located at the junction of SR 436 (Semoran Blvd.) and SR 528 (the Bee Line/Beach Line Expressway), and is accessible by Interstate Hwy 4.

With four long runways and an estimated 35 million annual passengers, Orlando International Airport is hub to AirTran Airways and is served by countless domestic and international, regular & low-cost airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.

NOTE:  1. CLEAR lanes is now available to members, getting you through security quickly.
2. Self-service kiosk technology at MCO now partially automates the inspection process for arriving foreign citizens (and soon also U.S. citizens) -  speeding up the international arrivals process. 

The on-Airport 443-room Hyatt Regency Hotel (tel. 407-825-1234), , is located on top the Main Terminal and offers covention & meeting rooms, an AAA-rated restaurant and 446 rooms.

Orlando International Airport has one passenger terminal connected to four airside satellites.

Present and future Airport developments:  Work started recently on the automated people mover tram (APM), which is to replace the present two shuttle systems at airsides 1 & 3.
Airside 4
is to add 4 new international gates and expand the Fedeal Inspection station (FIS) - no completion date is yet available.
By year-end 2015 - an integrated rail system between Orlando Airport & Miami will become reality by adding 40 miles of new track, linking Orlando to existing 200 miles rail infrastructure. The passenger rail service will be called 'All Aboard Florida'. Its terminal station is to be located at the future APM Intermodal Facility at the planned South Airport.
Up to late 2017 - the ongoing new 'South Terminal' project, (as well as improvements to the current facilities), is are under  phase 1 construction - to be completed late 2017 - involving the South Airport Automated People Mover (APM) Complex, a multi-level garage, more ground transport & remote check-in & baggage drop facilities).
By 2017 - a new 13.8 mile elevated Maglev rail system between Orlando Airport  & Orlando, with  stops at Florida Mall, Orange County Convention Center, & possibly SunRail station.
By 2019 - a new terminal - part of the project - but will not start before the Airport reaches the 40M passenger count. The entire project is to bring capacity to 45M.  A circular route at Convention center would add 3 more stops at hotels.
FAA Funding was granted in July 2014 paving the way for a new Intermodal Transportion Hub (south  of current Main Terminal).
