American Airlines Miami hub surpassed 30 million passenger in 2019. The airline set a new record at the Miami International Airport (MIA) last year with 30.3 million passengers. This marked a 1.7% increase from the previous year.
“For the first time since establishing the Miami hub 30 years ago, we transported more than 30 million passengers,” said Juan Carlos Liscano, Vice President – Miami Hub Operations. “We also had a record operational performance at MIA with our best baggage handling numbers as well as our second best on-time performance in our history, all impressive metrics that highlight our focus on operational excellence.
“Our more than 13,000 team members at MIA are already hard at work ready to set new records, just earlier this month achieving our best holiday performance in our history. We look forward to another record-breaking year in 2020.”
American operates 340 daily flights from MIA to nearly 130 destinations worldwide, including Latin America and the Caribbean. It continues to strengthen its footprint in both regions since its establishment 30 year ago, and 2020 is projected to see more growth with additional schedules to Lima, Peru (LIM); Santiago, Chile (SCL), and São Paulo, Brazil (GRU).
