Passenger airlines at MIA grow to 13 in July as rebound continues
Airlines and passengers continued their return to Miami International Airport in July, when five more airlines – British Airways, Caribbean Airlines, Eastern Airlines, Lufthansa and TAP Air Portugal - restarted scheduled international flights at the global hub. Previously in June, Aeromexico, Iberia and Turkish Airlines also made their returns to MIA, joining five airlines that never ceased operations during the COVID-19 pandemic: American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, LATAM Airlines and United Airlines.
Combined, the 13 airlines have MIA averaging nearly 30,000 daily passengers in July, up from its lowest point of 3,500 daily passengers in mid-March. The upward trend is expected to continue in August, when even more international airlines are scheduled to resume Miami service.
It has been encouraging to see passenger confidence in our airport and our airline partners continue to grow since the beginning of the pandemic. In partnership with the airlines, we have implemented aggressive measures to keep our passengers and employees safe while at the airport. Measures such as plexiglass installations throughout the airport, increased cleaning schedules, audio and visual messaging about social distancing and face mask requirements, and hand sanitizer stations throughout our facilities, provide added protection for our increasing number of travelers.
Airline schedules are subject to change due to government travel restrictions, so passengers should confirm flight availability with their individual airline.
