This view can only mean one thing... adventure! Thanks for the picture, Andres.
This week, our Director Emilio González (R) shared some of MIA’s good news with Florida Gov. Rick Scott. Last year, we added six new international airlines and seven more will arrive this year. In 2016, we also added four new cargo carriers and moved over 2M tons of cargo with imports and exports valued at $57M. This all translates to jobs, jobs, jobs – 1 in 4 households in South Florida derive employment from MIA.
In WWII, U.S. Army Air Corps bombardier Richard Conner flew 76 missions in the B-26 Marauder earning him the Distinguished Flying Cross, a Purple Heart, the Air Medal, 14 clusters and the French Legion of Honor. On Conner's first mission, three of his Quonset hut mates were killed and mission No. 57, was the bombings at Utah Beach on D-Day. May 20 is #ArmedForcesDay
- join us to welcome home Major Conner and 69 other veterans on an Honor Flight. #MIAsalutes
Hats off to the patriotic team at The Knitting Garden in Coral Gables for making 70 red, white and blue caps for veterans on the upcoming May 20 Honor Flight. Moved by the video of one of the recent flights, the owners of the shop wanted to do something to honor and thank the veterans – the Hats for Vets project did just that! Join us on May 20 at 8 p.m., as we welcome home our hometown heroes.

There’s no time like now! #WednesdayWisdom
When an elderly passenger needed assistance with her travels, Rosie Clayton-Leslie and Oscar Interian from Landside were quick to help. Due to a car accident last year, the passenger was not capable of carrying her luggage from the Tri-Rail Station to her ticket counter. Rosie and Oscar coordinated with the passenger, met her at the train station with a luggage cart and assisted her throughout her entire trip at MIA. Congrats Rosie and Oscar for becoming our Employees of the Month - you’re a true example of excellent customer service.
Rain or shine, we’re on the move all the time. Thanks for the great pic, Iaroslav K.
And Hashy is off to the Run for the Roses! #CatchHashy

May is #WorldTradeMonth
so what better time to feature MIA’s freight and cargo business and its impact in our community and beyond. We’re the #1 airport for International Freight in the U.S., up 8% in 2016. Pharmaceuticals fueled this growth, surging 48% in the last year. Since 2010, Pharma trade has increased by 140% in Miami-Dade County. In 2015, MIA was the first airport in the western hemisphere and the second in the world to receive the IATA CEIV pharma freight hub certification. Since then, we have strengthened our position as a leader in pharma trade by joining forces with Brussels Airport and creating the Pharma.Aero organization. The goal of the association is to be a collaborative group of airport operators, pharma shippers, CEIV-certified cargo communities and other air pharma stakeholders focused on improving pharma handling and quality in the air cargo industry worldwide. The value of pharma trade will exponentially increase in the upcoming years, and MIA has positioned itself as the cornerstone for pharma trade in the Americas.
