As part of Orlando International Airport’s $3.5 billion Capital Improvement Program, the North Terminal Renovation program is designed to revitalize the existing Main Terminal and consists of three components:.

Ticket Lobby Modification

Ticket Lobby Enhancements

The ticket lobbies are being expanded and updated with self-assist counters which will increase throughput capacity and efficiency of passenger processing. This involves moving the exterior walls out towards the departures curb, replacement of the check-in desks with modular units, and replacement of the back-wall signage with LED screens which will display a range of information including airline branding, flight information, security wait times and interactive entertainment.

To improve navigation throughout the terminal the digital and static signage are also being updated and replaced. Several sections of new ticket counters are now operational, with the last section scheduled for completion by the end of 2017 and completion of all ticket lobby modifications by early 2018.

 

 

 Airside 4 Improvements

Expanded FIS Facilities for Customs and Immigration

To cater to our rapidly growing international traffic, four current domestic gates on Airside 4 (Gates 70-99) have been converted to “swing” gates to allow them to be used for either domestic or international service, including the capability to handle the largest commercial aircraft currently being operated.

The Federal Inspection Services (FIS) facilities are also being expanded to provide more space for Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers and passengers being processed through customs and immigration. This expansion and refurbishment will increase throughput by 25%. The expansion is scheduled to be operational in Summer 2018.

 

 

Baggage Handling System Improvement

The overall baggage handling system project has a cost of $100 million, will replace multiple conveyors and carousels, as well as, explosive detection system devices. It will increase capacity and upgrade control systems. The emergency power generation facility is also expanded in the southwest corner of the Main Terminal at Orlando International Airport. This project consists of the expansion of the existing generator building to accommodate three additional generators to provide emergency power to the baggage handling systems.
