Miami International Airport Nearly Broke Domestic Passenger Record In May

It was one of the best months of May for domestic passenger travel in the history of Miami International Airport this year – despite coronavirus.

Overall, a combined 2,247,949 domestic passengers were recorded at the airport in May 2021, which was close to a record for the month.

The domestic passenger numbers for May 2021 were higher than any May in the past five years.

Only May 2016 saw a higher domestic passenger count at the airport. May 2021 came within 1% of breaking that all-time high.

MIA’s domestic passenger count looks sure to rise over the coming months, as airlines such as Spirit have announced significant service increases.

The combined domestic and international passenger count at MIA in May 2021 reached 3,338,296, or about 80% of the passenger count seen in May 2019.

MIA is why I stopped flying. It’s a freaking zoo. Almost as bad as the DMV on Flagler.
Seriously though. If I can’t drive or ride my motorcycle I am not going.
Flying is now the equivalent of a crosstown bus. Being trapped in pressurized metal tube at 37k ft traveling at 500 mph with people that can’t behave in public- does that sound like fun? Nope forget it not flying anymore. I used to love it.

The airport needs to allow drivers to access the taxi lane, AA arrivals is creating a bottle neck.
