Orlando area airports are eager to know how the trip will affect flights. Trump is expected to land at Orlando International Airport, but the flight restrictions that follow him have some people at nearby airports preparing.
“The main loss of revenue would be related to fuel coming and going at that time,” said Joel Thomas, President of Stratos Jet Charters. “There’s two rings, essentially, that control the access to that area, a 30-mile ring and a ten-mile ring. Any planes that come and go within the ten-mile ring have to go to a gateway airport.”
Thomas said this Friday, if the restriction includes executive, where his business operates, he might have to look for another place to take off and land.
It could be Sanford, or as far away as Atlanta.
Sanford International Airport officials said they don’t expect delays and cancellations, but it all depends on the flight path announced later this week.
