    SANFORD, Fla., April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Orlando Sanford International
 Airport serviced a total of 84,787 passengers in March, made up of 31,549
 domestic travelers and 53,238 international.  Total passenger traffic was up
 37%, with domestic up 35% and international up 38%, over March 2000.  More
 than 200,000 passengers have passed through Orlando Sanford since January, a
 year-to-date increase of 26%.  A total of 33,966 operations in March place the
 airport 5% ahead of March 2000.  The Airport also processed 921 tons of cargo,
 which represents a 26% increase over March of last year.
     Orlando Sanford International Airport welcomed more than 700 guests to the
 new terminal complex for its dedication celebration on March 23.  The event
 marked the completion of the airport's $27 million, seven-gate terminal
 facility addition with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, live music and activities
 for both business leaders and the local community.  The new facility is
 expected to attract additional domestic airlines and allow existing airlines
 to continue expanding.
     Orlando Sanford International Airport is located near the Orlando
 attractions and is also very convenient to Daytona Beach.  Adjacent to the
 airport are the business communities of Lake Mary and Heathrow, part of
 Florida's "High-Tech Corridor."  Airlines and their passengers enjoy free
 parking, new domestic terminal facilities, short walking distances and low
 operating costs.
