Orlando International Airport, Breaking Travel Records

One of my favorite airports is Orlando International Airport (MCO).  There is so much to see and do at this airport that you could really make visiting it a vacation within your vacation!

Orlando International Airport, Breaking Travel Records

Of course, with an airport as large as Orlando International Airport is, you will find the number of passengers passing through it to be rather large.  In 2018, over 47 million passengers utilized the airport.  This broke the record that was set in 2017 when 44.6 million passengers passed through.  The airport actually saw a 7% increase from 2017 with 47.7 million passengers.

The majority of travelers traversing through Orlando International Airport were domestic travelers.  They made up 41 million passengers.  This was actually a 6% increase from 2017.  The remaining 6.6 million passengers were international travelers.  International travel made up an increase of 11% from 2017.

In all, Orlando International Airport offers 150 domestic and international destinations.  The influx of passengers is reflected with all of the work that has been being performed at the airport.  By allowing so many different nonstop destination options, Orlando is the perfect vacation spot.  Whether you are visiting theme parks such as Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Orlando Resort or embarking on a cruise or a beach vacation, the possibilities are endless.

With the highly anticipated opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge later this year, I personally think that the 2018 record will be broken once again come 2019.  What do you think?
