Miami Airport's rising international status

12th February, 2010

For centuries New York has been the point of entry for persons headed for the US. In recognition of this status, Eliis Island is now a National Monument dedicated to the millions who passed through its facilities. In the 20th century, as aviation overtook sea travel, the focus shifted to the airports - specifically New York's Idlewild, which became JFK. Eventually, as additional cities gained direct international links, many travelers bypassed New York and flew directly to or via other gateways. Nonetheless, JFK retains its special significance and remains the initial point of entry for most carriers establishing new service.But,surprisingly, the airport that now boasts the largest percentage of international flights lies far to the south of New York - in Miami.
