PHOTOS & VIDEOS: First Look Inside the New Terminal at the Orlando International Airport

We talk a LOT about the exciting updates coming to Disney World in the future, but what about the other major renovations in the area…like the Orlando International Airport!

Orlando International Airport

In case you missed it, the Orlando International Airport (MCO) is planning a big expansion, adding a Terminal C with more gates, new dining and shopping options, and plenty of new tech. Today, some media representatives got to tour the new space (that’s still under construction) and we’re sharing the photos!

Greg Angel from My News 13 shared some photos of the new terminal on Twitter, noting that construction is still underway on the 1.8 million square foot building. It’s set to open this summer, and the project is costing approximately $3 billion.

JetBlue will be the primary airline, and when it opens there will be 15 gates. According to MCO CEO Kevin Thibault, this is just the first phase of the airport’s expansion. With more space to accommodate more gates, Terminal C could eventually accommodate 60 million passengers per year.

The bathrooms in the new terminal are larger and even pet-friendly! We also got a video look at the outside area of the terminal, showing the view that ground crews will have.

And finally, the terminal will bring a new luggage system to the airport, using RFID to track your baggage. (That’s the same tech that’s in MagicBands at Disney World.)

We’ll make sure to share any additional details about the new terminal as they’re released, and update you with any information that will impact your travel plans! Stay tuned to AllEars for the latest.
