As South Terminal C at Orlando International Airport comes closer to completion, roadway signage has been introduced to direct passengers to the new facility.
Recently-installed signs show motorists heading north or south where to access the terminal, parking garage, rental car returns, and exits. Signs that will eventually identify specific airlines have been mounted to support structures, awaiting the addition of the carriers that will serve the new terminal.
While travellers have long been familiar with the orange and green identifiers for terminals A and B at Orlando International Airport (MCO), the signage for South Terminal C is blue. The roadways serving the South complex will provide access to passenger drop-off and pick-up lanes at South Terminal C; Parking Garage C, which has 2,416 public parking spaces; and the South cell phone waiting lot, which has 210 spaces. It will also offer access to the front entrance of Intermodal Terminal Facility (ITF) for indoor access to Brightline station and the automated people mover system to the North Terminal.
According to the airport, Terminal C is more than 80% 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.
