Orlando Melbourne International Airport History

Orlando Melbourne International Airport is governed by a seven-member board appointed by the Melbourne City Council and the private sector.

It originally opened in 1928 when a Pitcairn Aircraft infamously landed on a cow pasture strip north of Kissimmee Highway.

In 1933 the City of Melbourne decided to acquire the land and plan the airport construction. It was used as a Naval Air Station during World War II and returned to the city in 1947.

Though it was known as Melbourne Municipal Airport for the most part, in 2015 the airport was renamed Orlando Melbourne International Airport for its proximity and association with Orlando.
