Orlando Airport Parking – Quick Pick-Up/Drop Off


Cell-Phone Parking Lot is a new addition to Orlando International Airport. It offers a free and convenient way to pick up passengers without having to repeatedly circle the airport. Simply wait at the cell phone parking lot and wait until your passenger call you to be collected from the terminal on his/her cell phone. Then you can drive up to the collection point and pick them up.

The lot has 100 spaces. There is free wireless internet service in this area too. Use SSID code “Internet”.

Express Pick/Drop Off – Only for E-Pass and SunPass users. This is a service where you can wait for your passengers in your car, or exit the car to collect them. The cost is $1.00 per 30 minutes up to 2 hours, then $5 per hour(or any part thereof).  The service is open from 8am to midnight daily. The parking fees will be deducted from your E-PASS/SunPass account.

Orlando Airport Parking – Curb-side Drop Off – This is the quickest way to drop passengers off at the airport departures lounge. This is only for departures!

Simply drive up and let your passengers out. Only use this option if you know you won’t be leaving your vehicle – the security staff will be hassling you if you leave your vehicle unattended or you linger without dropping off your passengers. if you need to park after dropping passengers off you can drive straight to one of the terminal garages as sign posted.
