OIA reports 9% increase in passenger traffic to kick off 2015


The Orlando International Airport has reported that passenger traffic in January has increased across the board with an increase of nearly 9 percent in domestic and international volume combined, compared to the same time last year.

“Our strong domestic and international growth is a direct reflection of the robust, job creating Central Florida economy,” said Frank Kruppenbacher, Chairman of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “Solid numbers like these make it imperative that we move forward with our capital improvement plans so that we may continue to meet our community’s growing demand for years to come.”

Also playing a key role in the increased numbers, the airlines made more seats available to Orlando in January. Leading the way was Frontier Airlines adding over 43 thousand seats to the market. In all more than 162 thousand additional seats were made available for travelers coming to Central Florida.

The news comes at a good time for OIA as begins a 1.1 billion dollar expansion project, the largest in it’s history that will feature an Intermodal Transportation Facility, expansion of custom and border security areas, and improvements to the north terminal complex.
