MIA ranked best Florida airport for business travel

TravelBank study also places MIA 8th overall among 30 busiest U.S. airports

Miami International Airport (MIA) is the top airport in Florida and 8th best in the U.S. for business travelers, according to an inaugural study released this month by TravelBank. The study, ranked the 30 busiest U.S. airports based on five factors: transit accessibility; on-time arrival performance; overall quality satisfaction; parking rates; and nearby hotel prices.

Congratulations to MIA for achieving high marks in the TravelBank study. Our airport is the first impression for business travelers to have of our community, so this accolade is welcome news for Miami-Dace County.
Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez

According to Federal Aviation Administration and U.S. Department of Transportation data used in the study, MIA served 20.8 million enplaned passengers in 2016 and had a 79.1 percent on-time arrival performance in 2017 – both ranking highest among Florida airports with more than 10 million arriving passengers. The airport also received high scores in transit, which were calculated based on transit and driving time, transit fare price, and the cost of pre-booked UberX rides to or from the airport. MIA stood out as well for its average nightly rate of $202.60 at hotels within a radius of 15 miles – the third-most affordable rate of all 30 airports in the study.

We are proud to be ranked by TravelBank as one of the leading airports in the U.S. for business travelers. We look forward to building on this ranking with more facility improvements coming soon, which should lift our customer satisfaction scores even higher.
