Greater Orlando Airport Authority Update
Greater Orlando Airport Authority executive director Phillip Brown highlights how being the main gateway to one of the best known leisure destinations in the world can be both a help and a hindrance. He highlights how the local attractions continue to reinvent their products and that is driving record traffic through Orlando International Airport (MCO), but notes that the strong leisure flows means a cautious approach is required to infrastructure projects. He explains that Orlando is growing its business and educational activities and will help the city attract alternative passenger flows and that MCO is working to incorporate technology, grow its international facilities to support increasing passenger demand. A non-stop flight into Asia remains MCO’s top network goal.
