Orlando Authority approves $446m MCO budget

By Charlotte Turner |

The Board of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority approved a budget of nearly $446 million for the operation of Orlando International Airport (MCO) and a $3 million budget for the Orlando Executive Airport. The newly approved budget for MCO represents a 2.3% increase over 2012.


“Firstly, this budget incorporates our strategic goals of improving customer service, fostering economic development and operating world-class facilities in a fiscally responsible manner,” says Phil Brown, Executive Director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.


“Secondly, it targets a very competitive airline cost per passenger fee of $5.35 and thirdly, it continues our fiscal strategy of generating 70% of our revenues from non-airline sources.”


Comprising that 70% of the budget, MCO secures revenue from concessions, rental cars, hotel, parking services and ground transportation.


The new budget takes effect on October 1, 2012 and ends September 30, 2013.
