Orlando International Airport
Orlando International Airport is the only gateway to the heart of Florida. Orlando International Airport is one of the most beautiful, sophisticated and environmentally-concerned airports in the nation. It is practically an attraction in itself. Both inside and out, the airport has incorporated the celebrated Florida sunshine and atmosphere into its ultra-modern design.

In Hong Kong Aerius is going to visit some companies and institutions with relation to the Aircraft and Logistic Industry. Hong Kong forms a bridge between China and the rest of the world.

Mr. van Reijen is the perfect airline gadfly: He carries fare tables with him and spends hours searching for loopholes in airline regulations. And he’s not afraid to prove his case.
