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’.

For more than 35 years, the French industrialists have developed systems and equipment to match the worldwide evolution of airports and air traffic controller’s operational needs. In the 1970s and 1980s the main focus of the aviation sector was to increase air navigation safety. In the last 20 years French engineers have been heavily involved in designing emblematic airports around the world.For 10 years now, the concern has been to cope with the worldwide increase of air traffic, the rise of risks and the demand of travellers who expect services and facilities within an airport to be similar to those that they might find in their own town, has meant that an airport now needs to be secure, safe and able to offer a better passenger experience. French companies are fully dedicated to innovating solutions which improve the management of passenger flow.
Paul Behan considers the advantages of Common Use Self Service kiosks and how sharing the cost of their installation, can mean sharing the benefits. The case for Common Use Self Service (CUSS) kiosks for check-in has always been robust. The concept is simple. Installing check-in kiosks that can be shared by a number of airlines eases access for customers, reduces hardware and maintenance costs for airlines and allows airports to make better use of valuable real estate. IATA estimates that on average CUSS saves airlines US$2.50 per check-in. That adds up to US$1 billion in annual industry savings with 40 per cent market penetration.
