“I have just had the pleasure of flying via Orlando...”

Written on: 26/06/2006 by Clair (1 review written)

I have just had the pleasure of flying via Orlando Sanford Airport, and as the other reviews suggest, it is small and rather compact, but it is clean and it functions very well. The check-in area seems very cramped for the amount of people who travel throughout this airport, and the security check-in does not match that of the traffic expected in the summer months, so do arrive early.

Once in the lounge there is one duty free shop of standard size, so don't expect too much here, but they do sell UK cigarettes if you are a smoker, and lots of alcohol. They also have the usual over-priced 'food court', which has an American section with hot dogs, fries and onion rings, then they have a world food section which serves pizza, and a bakery/cake shop, as well as a small selection of sandwiches. All of this is self service and very over-priced.

Also in the airport they have a games room where you can pay just one fee of $10 per person, and you can play as many games as you want. There are also two bars, both serving bud on draught. Great tip of you are using this airport is that one of the bars is outside behind the duty free shop, and you can sit and have a drink and top up that tan for those last few minutes before the return journey home.

Overall, this airport is fine. It is pretty small and very expensive. If you do go, it is because you are on some package tour from the UK, as this is the main purpose of this airport. If this is your reason for visiting Sanford, then driving times take around 45 minutes to Orlando, and don't forget to tip the driver if you're on a transfer coach.
