Orlando International Airport doesn't seem to have an "off-season" anymore. 

This could be due to the demand of the local theme parks, the rapid growth in the Central Florida area, or just the fact that Orlando was named one of the best places to live in the United States and people just want to come see what all the fuss is about. 

However you look at it, many of the people visiting Orlando come via Orlando International Airport, which could be why the airport is set to crack the top 10 busiest airports in the country.

In 2018, Orlando International saw 47.8 million passengers pass through which allows the airport to claim the 10th spot of the busiest airports based on passenger traffic.

Traffic in January was up 5.4% over last year.

Orlando International Airport is currently undergoing a massive expansion that will eventually add nearly 100 more gates to the already expansive airport.
