Big Changes in Store for MIA
Major changes are in store for Miami International Airport (MIA) after receiving approval from the Miami-Dade commission for a $5 billion improvement plan aimed at modernizing the airport. The changes are required as MIA is expected to see nearly 80 million travelers and over four million tons of freight by the time 2040 arrives.
The comprehensive plan is designed to tackle operational and capacity needs through a multi-tiered approach which will focus on redeveloping Central Terminal concourses E and F, expanding the South Terminal, and renovating the Concourse D gates to better accommodate larger regional jets as well as wide-and-narrow body aircrafts. Also in the works is a pair of new hotels, expanded parking positions for aircrafts, and more.
The improvement plan is one of the latest milestones for MIA which celebrated ninety years of operation in 2018. Last year, the airport had over 45 million passengers for the first time, an increase of close to a million compared to 2017. MIA also holds the distinction of being the country’s busiest U.S. airport for international freight.
