"The success of collaboration of government and business leadership in our region, is evident in Orlando International Airport's record breaking year with nearly 39 million passengers reported in 2015," said Frank Kruppenbacher, Chairman of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.

"This affirms our need to continue with the $1.1 billion capital program in progress that will help us provide the level of customer service our passengers expect."
