ORLANDO, FL. - It was another record setting year for international travelers at Orlando International Airport (MCO). For 2013 over 3.9 million international travelers arrived and departed from MCO representing a 4.24 percent increase over 2012.

"International traffic now accounts for more than 11 percent of our total traffic at Orlando International which is why we're placing a major focus on enhancing the arrival experience for our international guests," says Frank Kruppenbacher, Chairman of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. "By providing a better Orlando Experience for our international arrivals with new self-processing kiosks and planned infrastructure enhancements we hope this level of growth, which leads to more jobs for our community, continues for years to come."

While international traffic continues to break records, domestic traffic remained relatively flat for the year, tapering about 2 percent.
