Miami International Airport has started the new year with back-to-back daily passenger records. On January 3, a record 145,891 passengers traveled through the airport, only to be surpassed the following day by a new all-time high of 146,257 passengers. The airport has welcomed more than 2.1 million travelers since December 21.
“I can’t think of a better way for MIA to start off the new year than by setting a new single-day passenger record and then breaking it the very next day,” said Miami-Dade aviation director Emilio T. González. “Miami continues to be a red hot destination for travelers from around the world and MIA is proud to be the global hub that connects all of these visitors to our community.”
MIA is poised for continued success in 2015 with the introduction of American Airlines service to four new domestic destinations in March, new service to Manchester, England on Thomas Cook Airlines in May, and charter service by the new Eastern Air Lines projected to begin in the second quarter.
