There are now 100 airlines operating at Miami International Airport – a number which surpasses all other U.S. airports.
Last week alone, the airport added two new carriers. On Tuesday, Finnair landed at MIA with a nonstop flight from Helsinki, becoming the 99th airline at the airport. Finnair’s A340 service to Helsinki will be seasonal, but will be extended to begin in October next year.
On Saturday, Frontier Airlines began operating at MIA for the first time, becoming the 100th carrier. The airline flies to Denver, New York, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and Chicago O’Hare from MIA.
In total, eight new air carriers were added at MIA in 2014.
Eastern Air Lines is planning to begin service at the airport in 2015, pending regulatory approval. The airline’s first plane landed at MIA this week.
