Orlando Airport Receives $69M Federal Grant
The new gates will be large enough to accommodate eight domestic jetliners or four larger aircraft used for service to Europe.
The construction work will begin soon and is expected to last for nearly three years.
“This is our new jobs and infrastructure act making a difference right here in Central Florida,” said Soto
The airport is planning to use the grant to connect the train station with Terminal C, which will improve access for passengers. The improvements are also expected to create hundreds of new jobs in the construction industry and beyond.
One of the highlights of Terminal C is the showcase of local brands that are expanding their reach by opening locations within the terminal.
Orange County Brewers, and Orlando Brewing Bar & Bites are some of the local concepts featured in the terminal.
Other dining options include Eola Market, Shake Shack, Harvest & Grounds, Summer House Orlando, Main Streets Market with Einstein Bros. Bagels, and Replenish with Illy Coffee.

The City Arts Market is an all-new feature in the terminal. City Arts brings the Orlando art scene to the traveling public by featuring products by local artists.
