How to Find Cheap Air Travel to/from Orlando
If you are flying into Orlando, chances are good that it is becuase you are headed to Walt Disney World (you lucky person, you). Orlando International Airport‘s code, MCO, is even the brunt of many the local joke – they say the letters stand for “Mickey’s Corporate Office,” or “Mickey and Company.” In reality, MCO is a reference to the airport’s former name, McCoy Air Force Base, though the Disney references certainly make a better story.
Orlando International Airport serves as a mini-hub for Delta Connection carriers Chautauqua Airlines and Freedom Airlines, and it is a focus city for AirTran Airways, Delta Air Lines and Southwest Airlines, so those are the airlines to check for special deals on tickets.
