First anniversaries are milestones in most of life’s significant journeys. It is a special moment for a journey more than two decades in the planning and development, namely the building of Orlando International Airport’s (MCO) Terminal C, and the satisfaction of celebrating one year of operations.


“The anticipation of Terminal C has only been surpassed by the realization of the facility’s potential,” said Kevin J. Thibault, Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “This past year has proven that a team of committed professionals can imagine and execute a bold vision, while being flexible enough to be guided through a few growing pains.”


Aer Lingus wrote itself into MCO history as the first flight to arrive at the new terminal on September 20, 2022. The sight was singularly gratifying and the culmination of a broader vision that began in the late 1990s when ground was first broken for a new terminal south of the Main Terminal. Through several starts and stops, the goal remained and persistence finally paid off.

It’s been a year of achievement for the airport, welcoming nearly 6.4 million passengers and more than 48,300 flights in its first year, plus with the opening of Brightline, Terminal C is the first airport terminal in the U.S. with a train station providing intercity high-speed rail service, embracing the vision of MCO as an intermodal transportation hub.
