Orlando International Airport Opens New Terminal C

On 20 September 2022, passenger flights commenced from Orlando International Airport’s (MCO) new 2.8 billion USD Terminal C.

The new terminal covers 300 acres and adds 15 gates that can accommodate up to 20 aircraft, including narrow body, jumbo and super-jumbo jets.

The new terminal aims to build upon MCO’s aesthetic of air, water and sky within a low-touch environment

As the newest airport terminal in the United States, Orlando Airport’s new Terminal C integrates a number of features not previously seen at a US airport.

For example, MCO states that it is the first fully integrated, multimodal airport terminal in the US for rail, air and ground transportation.

In addition it is the first terminal in the US to feature 100% automated TSA screening lanes and the first to have 100% facial recognition for arriving and departing international passengers.

“Terminal C has been a highly complex project, driven by the latest technology and incorporating the industry’s most innovative systems. It is a testament to professionalism and teamwork that this project has progressed in an efficient and timely manner.”
