Gulf Carrier Impact:
International travel to Orlando now makes up over 12 percent of the airport’s passenger volume, a record-breaking number.
To accommodate the rise in international travel, Orlando added an Emirates route to and from Dubai which contributes $100 million to Central Florida’s economy.
By adding this route, Emirates connects one of the top tourist destinations in the U.S. to the flourishing markets in India and Southeast Asia.
