MCO’s Terminal C Now Open

Orlando International Airport has announced that its long-awaited Terminal C, aka the South Terminal Complex, officially opened in September 2022, with eight international airlines.

In addition to new shops, restaurants and lounge facilities, the project adds 15 gates and high-tech features such as interactive digital media, a state-of-the-art radio frequency baggage system, and the Train Station, which is designed to accommodate up to three train systems including the forthcoming Brightline high-speed rail with service to Miami.

MCO advises that if you’re planning to travel in late September, to please double-check your airline’s location to make sure you are checking in at the correct terminal. Please also note that you may arrive back at a different terminal than that from which you departed, if your airline relocates while you are on your trip.

On-Site TSA PreCheck Enrollment Now Available at MCO

In partnership with IDEMIA, a global identity leader and longtime authorized TSA PreCheck enrollment provider, Orlando International Airport now provides a convenient, no-appointment TSA PreCheck enrollment option that travelers can use before departing. It takes five minutes or less and most passengers will receive their Known Traveler Number within three to five days.

IDEMIA TSA PreCheck Enrollment Ambassadors can be found in front of the security checkpoint for Gates 1-59, located on the South Walk side. The service is available Monday through Friday from 5 – 11 a.m. As an added benefit, travelers who apply on-site will have access to the reserved line at the security checkpoint for their departure on the day they complete their TSA PreCheck application.

REAL ID Coming in 2025

People waiting for a flight at an airport

Starting May 7, 2025, anyone planning on flying to Orlando for business or pleasure will need to secure REAL ID-compliant identification prior to departure.

Passed in 2005, the REAL ID Act will require a REAL ID-compliant card issued by a state’s driver’s-licensing agency or an acceptable alternative for all domestic U.S. travelers ages 18 and up who wish to fly on commercial aircraft. Acceptable alternatives will include Enhanced Driver’s Licenses (EDLs) issued by Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Vermont and Washington, as well as U.S. passports.

Most states have already begun issuing REAL ID-compliant identification for new cards and renewals. Depending on your state of residency, REAL ID cards will display a gold star, a black star, a gold circle with white star, a black circle with white star, or (in California only) a gold bear with white star.

If you or your meeting attendees haven’t started the process to get your REAL ID or acceptable alternative yet, start soon — we wouldn’t want anyone to miss the chance to meet in Orlando.
