3/19/2012 - "The Orlando Experience" A Hit With International Travelers
Orlando International Airport's (MCO) commitment to passenger convenience and customer service continues to impress global travelers. In a recent survey by one of Europe's largest online travel agencies, Orlando International ranked 5th worldwide in the category of Waiting Lounges.
eDreams.com reported it received thousands of responses from fliers throughout its 19-country operating area, who actually traveled through the airports they reviewed, and MCO finished with an average score of 4.31 out of a possible 5 points. A total of only .23 points separated the top five airports in Seoul, Singapore, Munich, Thailand and Orlando. Customers were asked to rate various aspects of airports including their services, shopping, restaurants, bars and waiting areas.
"We have facilities that capture the unique character of Central Florida known as "The Orlando Experience". In addition, with visitor-friendly amenities, including 70 retail and 57 restaurant locations, MCO offers customers multiple opportunities to relax comfortably before continuing their travel experience," said Greater Orlando Aviation Authority Executive Director, Phil Brown.
