The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority has announced that they are estimating a near-record number of travelers to pass through Orlando International Airport (MCO) this Thanksgiving.
Passenger estimates place the total number of travelers at approximately 1.63 million during the season. That represents only 2.5 percent less traffic than the record crowds of 2019. In fact, out of the 12 travel days, 4 are expected to exceed 2019 numbers. A total of 21,149 passengers is all that separates 2019 from 2021.
The strong travel numbers echo a VisitFlorida report that saw visitation during the third quarter that surpassed pre-pandemic levels.
