Possible hurricane postpones Orlando airport’s Terminal C dedication – Orlando Sentinel

Orlando International Airport said Friday it has postponed next week’s scheduled dedication of its new $2.8 billion Terminal C out of an abundance of caution because of an anticipated hurricane. 

The Greater Orlando Airport Authority, which manages Orlando International and Orlando Executive, said it is starting to implement pre-storm procedures while Tropical Depression 9 spins in the Caribbean.

“These activities include holding briefings with airlines and other airport partners along with activating the Authority’s hurricane emergency response plan,” the agency said in a statement.  “Safety is a priority and preservation of facilities are important during storm events.”

Among the facilities impacted by the possible hurricane is Terminal C. In addition to the postponement of the terminal’s dedication, OIA will also postpone the planned relocation of JetBlue and other airlines from Terminals A and B to the new facility.

“The Authority will take protective measures throughout the coming days and will continue to monitor the storm and coordinate airport activities accordingly,” the statement said.
