MELBOURNE, Fla. (June 12, 2020) – Orlando Melbourne International Airport (MLB) has launched a new program to provide a safe and healthy environment for all passengers, customers, tenants, and employees that includes impactful changes throughout the terminal and a new interactive website.

To prepare for the return of travelers from MLB’s strong business and leisure markets, the airport has implemented several initiatives to deliver a safe, healthy and comfortable travel experience:
- PHYSICAL DISTANCING GUIDES: Visuals guides have been installed to assist passengers with physical distancing at queueing locations throughout the airport including ticketing counters, TSA checkpoint, Dunkin’, boarding bridges, rental cars and baggage claim.
- TERMINAL RECONFIGURATION: Improvements to terminal seating and queueing lanes have been made throughout the terminal to encourage physical distancing.
- NEW WEBSITE FOR TRAVELERS: FlyMLBsafely.com has been launched as a resource for MLB’s passengers and customers outlining the renewed airport experience, safe travel tips, airline procedures and more.
