ORLANDO, Fla. – Travelers flying out of Orlando International Airport should start arriving even earlier to account for ongoing improvement construction, the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority said Friday.

The airport is in the middle of a $3.1 billion improvement plan, which includes renovations to the Automated People Mover that transports passengers from the security and check-in areas to the flight terminals.

A train replacement to Gates 30-59 was completed in June, train replacement for Gates 1-29 on the A side began in June and will not be finished until spring 2018.

Passengers on more than a dozen airlines may see some delays as only one train will be operational during the remaining replacement phase.

“Travelers flying with any of the above-mentioned airlines should allow for an increased amount of time to get to/from the main terminal and the gates,” GOAA officials said in a news release. “Should the single operating tram experience an interruption of service, the airport will deploy buses to transport passengers.”

Signs will be places around the airport to help passengers until the new train is up and running, GOAA said.
