When 50 million visitors are attracted to your city in a single year, you had better be prepared to exceed expecta - tions. As the number one family-friendly destination in the United States, Orlando’s first impression and last impression are often made by the one place that connects travellers to some of the world’s most iconic attractions; Orlando International Airport.Vision and leadership have always been driving forces behind the impressive growth and success of Orlando International Airport (MCO). From the beginning foresight, planning and co-operative interaction between airport officials and community leaders have played an important role in developing a world-class aviation facility. The evolution began in earnest in 1981 with the completion of a brand new main terminal complex. That year, MCO saw just over six million passengers move along its pair of 12,000 foot runways and through its two airside terminals.Thirty years, two additional runways, two more airsides and a new FAA control tower later, MCO has grown into the 13th busiest airport in the United States and one of the busiest in the world with more than 35 million passengers annually. Many factors have contributed to Orlando International’s progress and popularity over the years. Two of the more impactful have been the visionary approach taken by the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority to acquire land for future development and the creation of a unique design concept known as ‘The Orlando Experience’.
