Orlando International Airport Information

The Orlando International Airport is located just south of downtown Orlando, Florida. The international airport was originally a United States Air Force base. The base was named after Colonel Michael McCoy who died in an airplane crash. In 1962, the decision was made between the Air Force and the city of Orlando to share the airport. The airport was named the Orlando Jetport at McCoy. After a few years, the airport began to grow as national flights came to the airport. After the Vietnam War concluded, the decision was made to close the McCoy Air Force Base. However, the military still maintains control over a part of the facility. In 1976, the Orlando airport began to receive international flights. As time continued, the airport received more passengers and flights.

There are two terminals in the Orlando International Airport. The two terminals are Terminal A and Terminal B. Terminal A has two airsides. Airside 1 opened in 1981 and has 27 gates. In addition to this, it handles some international arrivals. In 2000, Airside 2 was built. It has 29 gates. Terminal B, like Terminal A, has two airsides.
