Miami International Airport (MIA) is the best airport in Florida and 8th in the U.S. for business travelers, according to an inaugural study released this month by TravelBank. The study, ranked the 30 busiest U.S. airports based on five factors: transit accessibility; on-time arrival performance; overall quality satisfaction; parking rates; and nearby hotel.
“Congratulations to MIA for achieving high marks in the TravelBank study,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. “Our airport is the first impression for business travelers to our community, so this accolade is proof-positive that we are moving in the right direction.”
According to FAA and U.S. DOT data used in the study, MIA served 20.8 million enplaned passengers in 2016 and had a 79.1 percent on-time arrival performance in 2017 – both numbers ranking highest among Florida airports.
The airport also received high marks in transit, which were calculated based on transit time, driving time, transit fare price, and the cost of pre-booked UberX rides to or from the airport. In comparison to competitors, MIA also stood out for its high overall quality and service, as well as the availability of more affordable nightly rates at nearby hotels.
“We are proud to be ranked by TravelBank as one of the leading airports in the U.S. for business travelers,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Lester Sola. “We look forward to building on this ranking with additional improvements coming soon, which should take our customer satisfaction scores even higher.”
