- Airport also ranked #1 in baggage claim, food, beverage, and retail
The annual J.D. Power study measures overall traveler satisfaction with mega, large, and medium North American airports by examining six factors (in order of importance): terminal facilities; airport arrival/departure; baggage claim; security check; check-in/baggage check; and food, beverage, and retail. This year, MIA ranked highest among mega airports in the bag claim and food, beverage, and retail categories.
Daniella Levine Cava, Mayor of Miami-Dade County said that “we can all be proud that Miami-Dade County is home to the best mega airport for customer satisfaction in North America. MIA’s top priorities are maintaining the safety and security of our travelers and providing excellent customer satisfaction. Just last week, MIA was reaccredited by the Airports Council International (ACI) Airport Health Accreditation program for its efforts to protect travelers and employees from COVID-19, and now it has been ranked best in a class by J.D. Power for its customer satisfaction. Congratulations to the MIA team for scoring these big wins for our County and our residents.”
On a 1,000-point scale, MIA achieved an overall score of 828, for a 27-point increase over 2020, when it ranked second among the busiest airports in the study. MIA improved from second to first place in the study while also becoming the busiest U.S. airport for international passengers in the 2021 year to date, at 6.4 million total international travelers through July.
