Orlando International Airport, known for many of its entertaining jokes and tweets referencing Central Florida theme parks, actually passed on some important information via its official Twitter account yesterday.
What is happening:
- Orlando International Airport is expanding with a brand new terminal, Terminal C, which is set to open next month. Instead of customers traveling to existing terminals to rent a motor vehicle, existing rental car brands will also have an office in the new terminal.
- The information was tweeted by the official Orlando International Airport Twitter account, saying, “For the convenience of our travelers, the on-site rental car companies currently available at Terminals A and B: Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National, Payless, Sixt, Thrifty – will also be available at Terminal C, starting September 19.
- The new terminal is expected to accommodate several international airlines – Aer Lingus, Emirates, Azul, British Airways, Caribbean Airlines, Lufthansa, etc., as well as JetBlue, which will depart from the terminal on September 27.
- Terminal C will have you covered if you are hungry, thirsty or ready to shop! The new terminal will feature 24 dining locations, including Chef Art Smith’s Sunshine Diner, Shake Shack, PGA Tour Grill, Wine Bar George, Barnies Coffee & Tea Co., Orange County Brewers and Cask & Larder. 12 outlets – including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, City Arts Market, Trip Advisor and Brighton. 1 Lounge – Plaza Premium Lounge
- A strong regional flavor will be present in the dining options with more than half of the concepts being local rather than national brands and the PGA Tour & Grill even includes a putting green. Summer House will have a “Florida” vibe with open, airy spaces and greenery, and the Plaza Premium Lounge will feature artwork from the Orlando Museum of Art and silent digital art from Full Sail University.
