The Orlando International Airport reported Friday that it’s had it’s busiest period in history this past November, on a rolling 12-month basis nearly 41.8 million passengers.
OIA saw a 10 percent increase in traffic for the 12-day Thanksgiving holiday travel period which translated into 1.4 million passengers.
“We prepared for the busy holiday season the same way we continue to prepare for record numbers of travelers on a daily basis, by providing our passengers with the latest in technology and focusing on excellent customer service,” says Phil Brown, Executive Director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “At this pace of growth we are expecting to break all passenger records at MCO by exceeding 42 million travelers before the end of the year.”
Some other notable numbers include a 12% increase in International travel and an 8% increase over 2015 numbers. The record breaking trend is good news for an airport that is currently undergoing $3.1 billion in renovation projects as these figures are expected to continue to increase.
