Flying can be stressful in any airport, but especially when it’s a larger one like the Orlando Airport.
Recent reports have shown that record-breaking crowds have passed through the airport in 2023, and it’s actually one of the cheapest airports in the country. The airport has recently revealed some of the plans they hope to accomplish over the next ten years — let’s check them out!
The 10-year plan “identifies four key priorities: connections, community, innovation and people (employees, customers, residents, visitors, business partners and more),” according to the Orlando Business Journal.
Some possible goals include:
- Partnering with theme parks to improve security checkpoint queues, install biometrics to increase throughput, and provide family lanes.
- Becoming the first large airport in Florida to incorporate electric vertical take-off and landing technology within the next decade.
- Beginning a monthly CEO lunch initiative with employees to host open discussions.
This process was started over a year ago, and since then, “an 11-member steering committee held 55 outreach meetings which more than 600 people attended, processed 800 stakeholder surveys and led 20 internal workshops.” Studies have shown that airports need to keep up with modernization, and this plan is one way to do that, per Orlando Business Journal.
