  • Miami International Airport Establishes New Record for Highest Single-Day Passenger Traffic during  Christmas Holiday Travel period

Miami International Airport (MIA) has proudly achieved a remarkable milestone in its history, setting a new record for passenger volume this past weekend. This surge is in the context of the peak holiday travel period, which spans from December 21 through January 6.

This past Sunday, MIA welcomed an impressive 171,371 passengers, marking the highest single-day passenger count in the airport’s history. This unprecedented volume of travelers is a testament to MIA’s commitment to providing exceptional service and a seamless travel experience, even during the busiest times of the year.

“This milestone is a testament to our airport’s position as a leading travel hub and a symbol of our global connectivity and cultural diversity. We are committed to continuing our efforts in providing world-class service to all who choose Miami-Dade as their destination. Thank you for making us the gateway to your journey,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava

Over the 17-day peak travel period, we anticipate a total of 2.8 million passengers. This marks a significant increase of 6.1% compared to the same period in 2022.

Because of the projected increase in traffic, MIA is providing the following tips for its winter travel season:

  • Arrive at MIA three hours before your flight to give yourself enough time for parking, airline check-in, and the security screening process.
  • Do airline check-in online before arriving at MIA.
  • If your flight gets delayed, please be patient with airline employees as they work to reschedule your flight and remain in contact with your airline for flight updates.
  • MIA also provides updated flight information online and on its mobile app.
