Allow More Time For Passenger Processing at Orlando International Airport

Press Release

ORLANDO, FL. – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has implemented enhanced passenger security screening procedures at Orlando International Airport. As a consequence, the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority and our airline partners advise passengers to arrive at their airline ticket counters no less than two hours prior to their scheduled departure time.

To help expedite the screening process, travelers should remember to dispose of liquids prior to entering the security screening lines and should also be prepared to place all electronics into the bins for screening. Passengers traveling on early morning and international flights, should check with their airlines about recommended arrival times.

"Maintaining safety and security are always our priorities, however, we also have a major focus on customer service and convenience, which is why I feel it is necessary to inform our travelers to arrive early at Orlando International Airport," says Phil Brown, Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. "Allowing extra time will better enable passengers to locate parking, process through their airlines and move through enhanced TSA security screening with the least amount of stress."

The new suggested early arrival time goes into effect immediately.
