South Terminal Complex Layout

Wayfinding Map - Terminal C

The South Terminal Complex is comprised of the following facilities:

  • Train Station


    The Train Station consists of approximately 1.3 million square feet of terminal space accommodating the South Automated People Mover (APM) Station and up to three regional rail systems (SunRail commuter rail, BrightLine inter-city rail, and possibly a third system serving the International Drive/Convention Center area). It will also support ground transportation activity including taxis, shuttle buses and public bus operations.

    SunRail currently operates over a 49 mile system with 16 stations through Volusia, Seminole, Orange and Osceola counties, and a bus link to MCO. The direct rail link to MCO is a priority for the City of Orlando and the airport, and although no date has been published, it is part of the future development plans for SunRail.

    Brightline is already operating in South Florida and is expected to extend service to MCO in 2023, offering service to W. Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami city centers. Additional stops are also planned for Boca Raton and Aventura.

    The South Airport Automated People Mover (APM) Station opened in November 2017. It is a 200,000 square feet facility, includes the station for the APM which connects passengers to the North Terminal, similar to those that connect the North Terminal to Gates 1-129. The ride provides scenic views of the airfield, gates 70-99 and the Air Traffic Control Tower on its 4-minute journey. The station in the North Terminal is on Level 3, between the security checkpoint for Gates 70-129 and the Terminal B airline check-in desks.

  • Parking Garage C


    Parking Garage “C” is located on the South Entrance Road adjacent to the South Automated People Mover (APM) Station and features 1,690 parking spaces and remote check-in facilities for domestic flights on Alaska, American, Delta, JetBlue, Southwest, Spirit and United (Domestic flights only, minimum of 90 minutes before departure, available between 6:00 am and 2:00 pm).

    The garage is within walking distance of Terminal C, but is also convenient if flying in and out of Terminals A and B, as it takes just four-minutes on the Automated People Mover which connects the two buildings, as shown in the video.

  • Terminal C


    Work is almost complete on Terminal C Phase 1, which will add 15 gates capable of accommodating up to 20 aircraft depending on the combination of narrow body, jumbo and super-jumbo aircraft, and support an additional capacity of 10-12 million annual passengers.

    Innovative technological and customer convenience features in Terminal C include:

    • Radio Frequency Identification Technology (RFID) Tote Baggage Handling System for efficient tracking and expedited checked baggage delivery
    • Early Bag Storage robotic system with 1,800 bag capacity – MCO is the only airport in the world to deploy the full system
    • Virtual Ramp Control system for airline aircraft operations
    • Large-scale interactive digital media displays will provide immersive, high definition visual experiences
    • Designed as the first LEEDv4 airport campus in the world
