A major gateway to the Sunshine State, Orlando International Airport (MCO) is Florida’s second-busiest airport (Miami International is busiest) and the 29th busiest in the world. It’s not to be confused with Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB), which also serves the city but is further from the major attractions of Disney World, SeaWorld and Universal Studios Florida. Orlando International is a mere 6 miles (11km) from the downtown area.
Flights to Orlando International Airport arrive from across the US and the Caribbean, South America and major hubs in Europe.
This spacious airport is easy to navigate, has lots of natural light, features loads of shops and restaurants, and is decorated with masses of leafy pot plants and fountains. Staff members are generally pleasant and helpful, and overall, it’s a great introduction to sunny Florida.
