Travelers have long been familiar with the orange and green identifiers for terminals A and B at Orlando International Airport (MCO). Now the duo has some company. The color blue is becoming much more prevalent around the MCO campus as South Terminal C moves closer to completion.
As construction on Terminal C continues, roadway signage is being added that will facilitate navigation to the new facility. Recently-installed signs inform motorists heading north or south where to access the terminal, parking garage, rental car return and exits. Signs that will eventually identify specific airlines have been mounted to support structures, awaiting the addition of the carriers that will serve MCO’s new terminal.
Drivers should be aware that efforts to enhance signage on the airport’s road system continue and periodic delays, detours and lane closures are possible. The roadways serving the South complex will provide access to:
• Passenger drop-off and pick-up lanes at South Terminal C
• Parking Garage C with 2,416 public parking spaces
• South cell phone waiting lot with 210 spaces
• Front entrance of Intermodal Terminal Facility (ITF) for indoor access to Brightline station and
Automated People Mover system to the North Terminal
• Airport convenience plaza
Currently, Terminal C is more than 80 percent complete, with construction on schedule for substantial completion in 2022. When operational, the new terminal’s 15 gates will accommodate up to 20 aircraft and support an additional capacity of 10-12 million annual passengers.
