It’s the Busiest Travel Time of the Season at Orlando International Airport

If your travel plans include a flight in or out of Orlando International Airport (MCO) this holiday season, you might notice that lines are longer than usual.

The airport has released projected passenger numbers for the days just before New Year’s Day, and, if you’ll be among the many, they advise that you pack light, arrive early, and check the Transportation Security Administration’s Twitter account (@AskTSA) for answers to any security checkpoint questions that you may have.

Here are the numbers as reported by MCO:

Today: 163,454 passengers
12/28: 168,247
12/29: 174,495 (busiest day)
12/30: 168,341
12/31: 145,479

Be sure to pack your patience, and travel safely!
