ORLANDO, FL. – The first quarter of 2007 showed a slight increase at Orlando International Airport. (MCO) The first three months of the year all recorded positive gains. Passenger traffic was up 1.35 percent overall.
“The figures for the first quarter of 2007 are elevated by the past two months when we processed over three million passengers each month at Orlando International.
