Airport Options in New York and Orlando
Four airports serve the New York area, including Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) in New Jersey, John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) in southern Queens, LaGuardia Airport (LGA) in northern Queens, and Stewart International Airport (SWF) in the heart of the Hudson Valley. Newark offers the most flights from New York to Orlando, although JFK and LaGuardia offer a good selection. All four airports offer both connecting and nonstop flights to the central Florida city from at least one of six airlines:
- American Airlines
- Southwest Airlines
- Spirit Airlines
All flights from New York will arrive at Orlando International Airport (MCO), located just six miles southeast of downtown Orlando. MCO is the second busiest airport in Florida and has one terminal separated into two sides. When you arrive at the gate, a shuttle will transport you to the main terminal, where you'll walk to level 2 for baggage claim. To get to the city from the airport, you could take a shuttle van or public bus. Many resorts and hotels in the city also offer transportation directly from MCO, so be sure to check before you arrive. If you prefer, you could rent a car or arrange for a private car.
