We’ve shared a lot of details about what we can expect from the brand new South Terminal C when it opens at Orlando International Airport. We know that it will use advanced technology to expedite the TSA process like facial recognition and a luggage identification system. It will also feature restaurants from the folks at Wine Bar George AND Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ AND The Polite Pig. Plus, it’s getting a brand new Disney Store. Basically, this is an exciting update for the Orlando International Airport.
We recently shared a first look of the new terminal, and now we have more details to share about an opening DATE!
Today, Orlando International Airport shared that South Terminal C has a projected opening date of September 19th! The terminal’s opening will actually be taking place over a two-week period that begins on September 19th. This is a bit later than the previous projected timeline of July 2022.
The new Terminal C will include 15 gates and will be able to accommodate up to 20 aircraft at a time. It will be able to support about 10-12 million passengers per year. JetBlue will be the primary airline departing and arriving in this terminal.
