Orlando International opening reflection room for Muslim travelers
by Dan Tracy
Emirates airlines will start flying in and out of Orlando International Airport daily within a few weeks, each jet carrying hundreds of passengers from the Middle East and beyond.
Many Emirates travelers will be Muslim, prompting the airport to spend almost $250,000 to build a reflection room where people of the Islamic faith can pray. It should be open for the inaugural flight Sept. 1.
"Orlando is truly becoming a global community, and we want to be able to accommodate and provide high-quality amenities for all our passengers," airport Director Phil Brown said in a written statement to the Orlando Sentinel.
