Miami International Airport Passes 80k Daily Passengers During Holidays

Passenger traffic at Miami International Airport surged in late December.

According to an airport spokesperson, the airport was regularly seeing passenger counts during the holidays reach above 70,000, with some dates reaching above 80,000, the Herald reported.

By comparison, the airport’s passenger count for the month of November was just 43% of what it was in 2019. For the first 11 months of 2020, passenger count was 40% of the same period in 2020.

The airport’s passenger count is set to continue growing later this year, with new service by airlines including Jetblue and Frontier.

MIA will also be getting a new route from Miami to Asuncion, Paraguay on Eastern Airlines, with twice weekly service. A press conference to announce the new route is scheduled for tomorrow.

No doubt that we will see a huge surge in COVID-19 cases in the next few weeks. Yes, we want businesses to open, but we also need common sense to prevail so we can KEEP them open, not too hard to do both!

Relax. Old people are getting their vaccines as we speak. That’s the most important. Once they are safe, who cares about covid.

The nanny state because it would no longer be an excuse to facilitate the Great Reset, Green New Deal, and make us all eat bugs.

Well I guess we shouldn’t expect you to be fighting for your life then.. just let Covid or Cascade take you away. Because, lets face it, you’ll just be number 2 or 3 in 7 billion so you won’t be missed.

The Herald article references 70s and 80s (as in 70,000s and 80,000s) in reference to passenger counts. I don’t see where it mentions % of normal.
