“This is an effort we’ve had going on for probably 20 years to get into France from Orlando,”
Phil Brown, executive director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, said. Brown also says that it took, “persistence with Air France to make it work.”
The addition of other international flights over the last few years has allowed Orlando International Airport to set a new annual record with 2.98 million international passengers arriving or departing in 2009. The airport reports that the 2010 pace also looks to be on record pace, up another 10 percent over last year.
