USA. Orlando International Airport has revealed details of an extensive new retail and food & beverage programme with a strong Sense of Place for its new Terminal C.

Shopping experiences will include souvenir stores from Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando.
Other retail options include newsstand and gift shop outlets such as The Scoop, Gatlin Trade, Sunglass Hut, TripAdvisor and Brighton.
The all-new City Arts Market will bring the Orlando art scene to the travelling public by featuring works of local artists.
The 24 F&B spaces currently planned for Terminal C will give travellers a wide choice of food and drinks from local and national brands.
A taste of Central Florida will be provided by local favourites including Barnie’s Coffee & Tea Co., Wine Bar George, Orange County Brewers, Provisions by Cask & Larder, PGA Tour Grill, Raw Juice, Cucina & Co, Olde Hearth Bread Co, Cask & Larder Public House, Orlando Brewing Bar & Bites and the Sunshine Diner by Chef Art Smith.
Other Terminal C options include Starbucks, Chick Fil-A, Auntie Anne’s, Cinnabon, Eola Market, Shake Shack, Harvest & Grounds, Summer House Orlando, Greenbeat, Desano Pizzeria, Main Street Market with Einstein Bros. Bagels and Replenish with Illy Coffee.
Plaza Premium Lounge is opening a new facility in Terminal C on the second floor of the Palm Court area. It will feature a dedicated area for families, a restaurant and bar, and quiet spaces for business travellers.
Greater Orlando Aviation Authority Chief Administrative Officer Yovannie Rodriguez said: “Our dynamic concessions programme for the new terminal features everything the modern traveller could want in the way of eating, drinking and shopping during their trip through Florida’s busiest airport.
“With more than 80,000 square feet of concession space, we were able to bring concepts to life in a way that meets the diverse needs of passenger demand and continues our delivery of The Orlando Experience.”
As reported, Orlando International Airport recently recorded its third-busiest ever month, with March delivering more than 4.1 million passengers.
