MIAMI — With the arrival of the first Frontier Airlines flight from Denver during the wee hours of Saturday morning, Miami International Airport became the only U.S. airport to offer passenger and cargo service on 100 different carriers.
Last week, two airlines launched new flights to Miami International Airport. On Tuesday, Finnair launched seasonal flights between Helsinki, Finland and Miami on Tuesday, making it the airport’s 99th carrier, and today, Frontier Airlines became the 100th carrier as it launches flights from Miami to Chicago O’Hare, Denver, LaGuardia, Philadelphia, and Washington Dulles.
With the additions of Finnair and Frontier, Miami International Airport’s roster of air carriers will be comprised of:
- 53 scheduled passenger carriers;
- 26 scheduled all-cargo carriers;
- 8 charter passenger carriers; and;
- 13 charter all-cargo carriers
“Adding our 100th air carrier – and being the only U.S. airport to offer so many passenger and cargo options – is a great way to cap off another fantastic year of progress at MIA,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Emilio T. González. “Our 100-strong airline list is every bit as diverse as the community that we’re so proud to serve and support. More importantly, these carriers help drive our local economy and keep our community connected to the world.”
