Orlando International Joins Program to Showcase Airports Across North America

ORLANDO, FL. – If you’re a collector, the next time you travel you might want to ask the airport staff “Does your airport have a trading card?” Orlando International Airport (MCO) has joined forces with Airports Council International (ACI) to release a trading /collectibles card for air travelers. The new Orlando International Airport card is one of 35 airport cards available for travelers to collect and trade.

“Kids of all ages are fascinated by airports and this card is just one way to reach out to aviation enthusiasts,” says Phil Brown, Executive Director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “With our first card in the collection we chose to focus on the beauty of our art collection. The result is an eye catching, colorful trading card that we hope becomes a must have for collectors from around the world.”

The MCO card depicts a section of the 15’ x 88’ mosaic created by Florida artist Victor Bokas entitled Florida Vacation, which can be seen when traveling through the satellite terminal used by MCO’s busiest carrier Southwest Airlines. The collectors cards feature some of the most recognizable and iconic images from some of busiest airports to smaller regional airports in North America. Each card offers geographic data, facts, figures and historical information unique to each airport. Complimentary cards at MCO will be available at the third-level information booths.
