Knowing that the Orlando International Airport is the leading airport in its region, seeing more than 50 million visitors yearly, plans of expansion do not catch us off-guard.
As it stands, the MCO Airport is made up of one main terminal and four satellite terminals. Passengers arrive at satellite terminals, which also house the aircraft gates. As for the main terminal, it is mainly divided into two sides, side A and side B. These two terminals are made up of three levels, providing a wide range of amenities, and are home to several airlines’ check-in desks.
Traveling between terminals is quite simple and takes a mere few minutes using the Automated People Movers (APM) shuttle trains. In between the two terminals (A and B) is the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

As soon as September 2022, the Orlando International Airport MCO is set to open its new Terminal C on the south side of the main terminal! This new project is set to be 2.3 million square feet of pure creativity, ingenuity, and efficiency. It will house 15 new gates that can accommodate 20 aircrafts.
Some of the airlines that will begin operating in Terminal C include:
- British Airways
- Caribbean Airlines
- Emirates Airlines
24 new restaurants and cafes will be opening with 12 retail stores. Some of these retail stores include the famous theme park brands:
- Walt Disney World
- Universal Studios
Furthermore, the new Plaza Premium Lounge will welcome visitors to Terminal C and will even feature artworks from the one and only Orlando Museum of Art.
Unique new features
When discussing the unique, new features of Terminal C, the Passenger360 comes to mind. The goal is to have digital displays all over the place that will provide passengers with important information and assist them in meeting their needs. The hopes for Terminal C are that digital and interactive displays will be commonly found around the terminal.
Another unique feature is the ‘Summer House’ design that is set to make the airport sunnier, allow more fresh air in, overlook a beautiful view, and overall give it a more Floridian vibe.
With so many more new features to talk about, perhaps it would be best to just experience this new masterpiece firsthand!
