MIA ride app dropoffs will be relocated day after Super Bowl

(MIAMI, January 28, 2020) Due to increased vehicle traffic expected at Miami International Airport the day after Super Bowl Sunday, all ride app passengers will be dropped off at the MIA Rental Car Center (RCC) from 4 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, February 3.

Since most Super Bowl LIV ticketholders are projected to travel through MIA, the airport is expecting more than 90,000 departing passengers on February 3, which would be a single-day record. As part of MIA’s Countdown to Takeoff Playbook, the airport is advising passengers to: check out of their hotel five hours before departure; request their ride app pickup four hours before; check-in their bags (if necessary) three hours before; arrive at the TSA checkpoint two hours before; and arrive at their gate one hour before.

After being dropped off at the RCC, passengers will take the MIA Mover for a two-minute people mover ride to the MIA Station, located on the airport’s 3rd level between the Dolphin and Flamingo garages. The station is at the center of MIA and is connected by moving walkways to all sections of the terminal building. To help expedite the check-in process, MIA hub carrier American Airlines will provide self-service baggage check-in kiosks at the RCC on February 3.

“We are looking forward to welcoming a record number of passengers at MIA on February 3,” said Lester Sola, MIA Director and CEO. “The relocation of ride app drop-offs to the Rental Car Center has been designed to avoid delays due to traffic congestion and streamline the departure process for all of our passengers.”
