    Default MCOs new South terminal progress

    As many of you probably know Orlando airport is building a new South Terminal which will handle International flights (not sure if that is all international flights).

    The project will be executed in phases with the development of the South Terminal Complex and associated facilities in a 300-acre area.
    Phase one will see the construction of the new airport terminal building with 16-24 airline gates capable of handling narrow-body, jumbo and super-jumbo aircraft. The project also includes the construction of associated improvements and infrastructure, including roadways, aprons, taxiways, lighting, walkways, aircraft loading bridges, concessions and security improvements. Development of a six-storey parking garage with a capacity to accommodate 2,500 cars, expandable up to 5,000, is also part of the project.

    Phase one is planned for completion in four years, of which design, construction and procurement will take 1.5 years, while 2.5 years will be taken for pre-construction and construction.

    This year as we were departing we unusually took off from the west runways so the plane taxied past the building site so I was able to take a few photos of progress.

    Also on the airport website there is a bit of info and a pretty good 'fly through' of the new terminal.

    Looks like they are well on their way with the primary construction.
    5 Trips to Florida, Christmas in LA, Disneyland Paris twice and odd days here and there.

    All my trip reports are now HERE.

    Yes, it's amazing to see how this is progressing, when there was absolutely nothing going vertical this time last year. We have already taken the tram from the north terminal to the new intermodal transit hub (where the new car park is, and the train station, that is just awaiting the trains!). It is all extremely smart and all coming together, slowly but surely, and we'll get an update next week when we visit for a ground-breaking ceremony with Virgin Trains USA for the start of the high-speed line down to Miami (also due in 2022).

    It will be interesting to hear what you get from the Virgin ceremony.

    Is it just me, or does that sound like someone is about to be sacrificed to bring rain or make the crops grow?
