Claim to Fame: Third-busiest international airport in USA.
As the USA’s third-busiest international airport, Miami International Airport is a key gateway for air traffic from Europe and South America. In 2016, more than 44 million passengers passed through its three terminals and the airport is continuing to expand. With well over 1,000 aircraft movements each day, Miami Airport’s four runways are kept busy at all times.
Passengers arriving in the terminal will find that facilities such as car hire are readily available. A range of car rental companies maintain offices within the terminal building, although passengers are advised to pre-book cars where possible to ensure availability and to minimise waiting and paperwork at the counter.
Waiting time is an inevitable part of air travel, but Miami International Airport provides a comprehensive range of restaurants, bars, shops and seating areas to take the pain out of waiting. There are also internet access points, a hotel and valet parking to ensure maximum convenience – whether you are arriving, departing or staying at the airport.
