Miami is a major business and leisure city that doubles as the US' primary gateway to and from Central and South America. As a consequence its airport also acts as a hub connecting those regions with other parts of the US and Europe. It has a large and growing annual passenger throughput but its main strength is in air cargo, where it is also the principal US-Latin American gateway.
But Miami International Airport does not have things all its own way. There is pressure in both the O&D and hub business segments from nearby airports such as Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood and from giant hubs further afield such as Atlanta and Charlotte Douglas. Additionally, developers hope to open a new commercial airport nearby to challenge Miami in the handling of perishable cargo.
This report looks at present and future growth trends at the airport, local airport statistics, how it matches up to competing airports across a range of metrics, at any construction activities and at its ownership.
Regulators out of control! The obsessive urge to control everything from denied boarding to charging for seat allocation. What’s the point? Do consumers really benefit?
