How to Find Cheap Air Travel to/from Florida
Florida might not be the biggest state in America, but it is full of so many popular vacation destinations that its airports are busy almost year-round. The sun, sand and surf are only three of the reasons why people flock to Florida – and there is a certain oversized mouse who is a major draw as well. Because this is a holiday hotspot throughout the year, it is a good idea to hunt for cheap flights to Florida so you do not spend a fortune on airfare.
The three busiest airports in Florida are Orlando International Airport (airport code MCO), Miami International Airport (airport code MIA) and Fort Lauderdale International Airport (airport code FLL). You will find special deals on Florida flights on the list to the left, which is updated daily, so be sure to check the list regularly for the most cheap flights to Florida.
Orlando occupies the top spot for one obvious reason – it is the nearest airport to one of Florida’s top attractions: Walt Disney World. The airport code of MCO is even jokingly said to stand for “Mickey’s Corporate Office” by some local residents. Orlando’s busy airport is a mini-hub for Delta’s smaller carriers, Chautauqua Airlines and Freedom Airlines, as well as being an airport which AirTran, Delta and Southwest Airlines focus on.

Miami International Airport is the gateway to both the sun-drenched city of Miami and its neighbor, South Beach, but Miami’s high level of airport traffic also has to do with the fact that it is one of the main international gateways to the United States, primarily from Latin America and flights to Florida from the UK. Miami is an American Airlines hub, as well as American Eagle and Executive Air, and you can read more about finding cheap flights to Miami.
Fort Lauderdale’s airport ranks third behind Orlando and Miami, and is reportedly one of the fastest-growing airports in the country as well. Because it is only 21 miles from the city of Miami, it has become a popular choice for people flying in and out of the area who want to avoid the bigger airport. Fort Lauderdale is the biggest hub for Spirit Airlines, one of the US discount carriers. Read more about finding cheap flights to Fort Lauderdale.
