On Tuesday (October 25, 2022), JetBlue announced that they have today officially become the anchor tenant at Orlando International Airport’s (MCO’s) new Terminal C. The carrier has moved their entire operation to the new terminal, after their final flight from Terminal A on Monday, October 24, 2022. JetBlue is currently the only U.S. airline operating out of MCO’s new state-of-the-art Terminal C, with 10 gates, all outfitted with biometric boarding. For the peak holiday season in December, the carrier plans on operating nearly 70 daily flights from MCO to 22 destinations.


In Tuesday’s announcement, JetBlue’s President and Chief Operating Officer, Joanna Geraghty, said,


“We are excited to lead the way as the anchor tenant at Orlando International’s new Terminal C. The terminal’s offerings are great, with remarkable architecture and a variety of food and retail options. This move not only shows our commitment to Orlando and the greater area, but it will also provide a new and elevated experience for our customers as we continue our growth in the region.”


Also commenting on JetBlue’s terminal relocation, Greater Orlando Aviation Authority’s Chief Executive Officer, Kevin Thibault, added,


“Terminal C is a vision-to-reality story that fits well with JetBlue’s values and award-winning innovation. We welcome JetBlue to Terminal C and look forward to having it provide an enhanced travel experience for the domestic and international passengers they serve annually.”


Orlando International Airport’s new Terminal C offers a state-of-the-art baggage handling system, automated TSA screening lanes and facial recognition technology for international travelers. The facility also features 10 retail and 20 food and beverage concessions, a mother’s nursing station and a pet relief area. Terminal C also links to a new rail station that will connect Brightline rail service to and from South Florida, as well as a planned future link to local SunRail service.


JetBlue employs over 4,000 team members in Orlando, which is home to the carrier’s Orlando Support Center (OSC), which serves as a pilot and cabin crew training base. The training facility includes classrooms, flight and cabin simulators, a ditch pool and other aviation related equipment, and is used to train all new crewmembers, as well as for recurrent training for existing team members. The campus also features The Lodge at OSC, a 24/7 dormitory facility, which has been thoughtfully designed to reinforce JetBlue’s values, while inspiring collaboration and team building.
