We’ve already learned that American Airlines is planning a record 380 daily flights departing from Miami International Airport this winter.
Now, the actual increase in seat capacity has been revealed.
According to MIA, seat capacity scheduled to and from MIA this winter by American Airlines is 10% higher than it was last year.
That would be a big boost to the airport, which is already seeing record numbers.
Last year, MIA served 50.7 million passengers, shattering its previous record of 45.9 million set in 2019.
This year, traffic is up 2.6% through the first half, putting the airport on track for yet another record (even before the AA increases kick in later this year).
Through the first half of 2023, American mainline flying accounted for 55.8% of passenger count at MIA. Envoy Air, which handles regional flying for AA, accounted for an additional 4.3% of traffic, bringing the total to just over 60%.
