Passenger traffic at Miami International Airport through the first three months of 2019 grew by 583,073 over the same period last year, representing a five-percent increase in the airport’s first quarter. MIA’s growth included an additional 306,421 (+5.5 percent) international passengers and 276,652 (+4.6 percent) domestic passengers year over year.
Florida’s busiest airport for international passengers expects continued growth in the second quarter of 2019, thanks to the launch of four new international routes: low-cost carrier Norwegian’s daily flights to London Gatwick Airport on April 1; Royal Air Maroc’s three weekly flights to Casablanca on April 3; LOT Polish Airlines’ four weekly flights to Warsaw on June 1; and Corsair’s four weekly flights to Paris Orly Airport on June 10.
The Casablanca route provides MIA’s first passenger flights to Africa since the year 2000 and Florida’s only nonstop service to the continent. The Warsaw route will mark MIA’s first-ever service to Poland and the only nonstop route between Florida and Eastern Europe.
