Orlando International Airport gets its own trading card

Orlando International Airport has become the latest North American gateway to get its own trading card.

The Florida gateway becomes the 35th airport to join forces with ACI-North America to release a trading card for air travellers to collect and trade.

“Kids of all ages are fascinated by airports and this card is just one way to reach out to aviation enthusiasts,” says Phil Brown, executive director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.

“With our first card in the collection we chose to focus on the beauty of our art collection.

"The result is an eye catching, colourful trading card that we hope becomes a must have for collectors from around the world.” 

The Orlando International Airport (MCO) card depicts a section of the 15’ x 88’ mosaic created by Florida artist, Victor Bokas, entitled Florida Vacation, which can be seen when travelling through the satellite terminal used by MCO’s busiest carrier Southwest Airlines.

The collectors cards feature some of the most recognisable and iconic images from some of busiest airports to smaller regional airports in North America.

Each card offers geographic data, facts, figures and historical information unique to each airport. Complimentary cards at MCO will be available at the third-level information booths.

Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport (Louisiana), Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (Ohio), Edmonton International Airport (Alberta) and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (Georgia) are among the 35 airports to have their own distinctive trading cards.
