Orlando International Airport South Airport APM and ITF


Orlando International Airport is one of the world's busiest airports as the gateway to Disney World, Universal Studios, Epcot Center, Kennedy Space Center, and numerous convention-ready hotels. 

This multi-modal facility serves as the central hub to Orlando International Airport’s new South Terminal C which serves 120 gates and 80 to 100 million passengers a year. The complex includes an Automated People Mover (APM) connection to the North Terminal and an Intermodal Terminal Facility (ITF) capable of accommodating SunRail, Brightline and potentially a third regional rail system. It is among the first on-airport intermodal facilities in the United States and the first in Florida with the capacity to conveniently support air travel, ground transportation and rail. The soaring ceilings and massive expanses of glass combined with long-spans throughout the facility created a unique engineering challenge, but the result is beautiful facility which has been described as a “frequent-flier club for the masses.”

A critical early component of the project is Parking Garage “C” which features nearly 1,700 spaces with a direct connection to the North Terminal. Passengers can currently take advantage of remote check-in facilities for Alaska, America, Delta, JetBlue, Southwest and United. These enhancements enable the Orlando International Airport to continue providing a high level of customer service while maintaining its reputation for fiscal responsibility.
