MCO Announces Relief Options
The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA), operator of Orlando International Airport (MCO), said this week it is considering reducing the scope of capital improvement projects and providing flexible relief options for airport concessionaires and rental car companies as it continues to adapt to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The airport authority board considered a number of additional measures including scaling back the scope of the South Terminal Complex construction from 19 gates to 15 gates, cutting the overall cost by $226 million. The South Terminal infrastructure upgrade project is currently at about 60 percent completion.
The board decided to offer a choice for in-terminal concessionaires of either a limited deferral or a waiver of Minimum Annual Concession Fees (MACF) for three months, contingent on a number of conditions including with complying with CDC and other sanitation guidelines.
