ORLANDO, Fla. — Orlando International Airport is seeing a rush of spring break travelers this weekend.
Airport officials expect Saturday to be the fifth-busiest day of the spring break travel season.
There should be more than 155,000 people moving through the airport.
OIA recommends getting to the airport at least two hours before your flight, especially if you’re traveling on a weekend.
Airport leaders said OIA will see more than 7 million travelers during the spring break season.
“This is our Super Bowl. This is when we have the opportunity to demonstrate to the world what great customer service and the Orlando Experience really means,” said Tom Draper, Acting Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “All of our operating systems are in place and tested, parking and concessions are ready for near record crowds.”
Last year, the spring break travel period registered 5.2 million passengers. With this year’s predictions, traffic is expected to climb 35 percent over 2021. By comparison in 2019, Orlando International Airport reported around 7.4 million travelers during that time frame.
