In a facility built to accommodate 24 million annual passengers, Orlando International Airport’s (MCO) latest passenger numbers are a constant reminder of why construction is underway in earnest throughout the facility. In July MCO welcomed its 41 millionth passenger during the past 12 months, up 10 percent over a year ago levels.

“Building for the future while continuing to operate a world-class terminal facility is a challenge that we are meeting on a daily basis,” says Phil Brown, Executive Director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.

“Maintaining excellent customer service is a must as we expand our facilities to accommodate our more than 41 million annual passengers.”

“July was also the busiest month we have ever had for international traffic,” says Frank Kruppenbacher, Chairman of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “Orlando International welcomed more than 553 thousand international guests, shattering the old record by 50 thousand during a single month.”

  • Overall rolling 12-month traffic achieved a new record high with 41,072,223 total passengers, up 10 percent over this time last year.
