Headline Goes Here

ORLANDO, Fla. - Orlando International Airport will soon open a Muslim prayer room.

The decision came after Emirates airlines announced it will soon be flying out of OIA.  

Since many that fly the airline are Muslim, OIA will spend $250,000 to build a reflection room where people can pray.

Currently at OIA, many Muslims pray in public or even in restrooms.  There is also a non-denomination chapel where prayer rugs are available.

With hundreds of new Muslim passengers, the airport wants to accommodate everyone.

The room should be open by the first Emirates flight, which is September 1.
