MIA officials hope to add up to four new premium lounges at MIA, but only one has been approved so far according to the Miami-Dade Aviation Department’s Greg Chin.
A proposal to operate a lounge in the South Terminal has been prepared for and presented to Avianca. The deal would be for less than five years, thus avoiding the need for a review by Dade commissioners.
British Airways also hopes to operate a lounge at MIA, but terms are still being negotiated for final approval. Qatar Airways has expressed interest in operating a lounge, but no terms have been discussed so far.
