Orlando International Airport
In 1942, the airport facilities were constructed to be an operating airfield for the U.S. Air Force. Named McCoy Air Force Base, it served as a solely military operation until the 1960s when larger civilian flights were allowed to land there. In 1976, the airfield fully transformed into a civilian airport and became Orlando International Airport (MCO). Its close proximity to multiple major cities and tourist destinations has helped make it the second busiest airport in Florida and the 13th busiest in the U.S. More than 80 airlines and approximately 30 million passengers travel to 100 domestic and international locations every year. The main building is separated into terminals A on the North side and B on the South side. While you wait for your flight, there are a host of shops, services, dining options, business and banking amenities and wireless internet to make your trip easier.
