Orlando SFB vs. MCO

If you’re flying into or out of Orlando, you’ll probably be touching down or taking off from either Orlando International Airport (MCO) or Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB). They have very similar names, so what’s the difference between Orlando SFB vs. MCO?

Orlando International Airport

Orlando International Airport (MCO) isn’t just central Florida’s busiest airport — it’s also the busiest in the entire state of Florida and eleventh-busiest in the United States. During 2017 alone, MCO handled 44,611,265 passengers. It’s also one of the largest commercial airports in the United States.

That might be due to its convenient placement, located just six miles from downtown Orlando and close to most major tourist destinations. As such, MCO runs regular services abroad, with just a few of its international destinations including:

  • London/Gatwick, England
  • Oslo, Norway
  • Paris/de Gaulle, France
  • Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • San Jose, Costa Rica

It’s a hub for Silver Airways and a focus city for Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest, and Spirit. Its top five airlines are:

  • Southwest
  • Delta
  • American
  • JetBlue
  • United

Orlando Sanford International Airport

Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) is smaller than MCO, but it’s still the Orlando area’s secondary commercial airport. SFB is not as tourist-focused since it’s farther from downtown and the major theme parks, so it should be no surprise that most of its traffic is domestic via Allegiant Air, which uses SFB as a focus city.

A few other airlines include:

  • Sun Country Airlines
  • Surinam Airways
  • TUI Airways
  • TUI fly Netherlands
  • ViaAir
