Turkish Airlines & Air France Doubling Flights From Miami To Istanbul & Paris

Two international airlines are significantly increasing service to Miami this year, according to flight schedules.

Turkish airlines will have two flights between Miami and Istanbul every day beginning on March 30.

It is the first time ever that Miami will have twice daily flights to Istanbul every day of the week. Currently, the second daily flight operates several days per week.

Air France is also increasing to double daily flights between Miami and Paris beginning in July for the first time ever.

Air France already runs double daily flights on certain days of the week, but it will now be a daily occurrence.

The increases come as Miami International Airport continues to regularly break records for having the most passengers in its history.

A new daily passenger record was broken again by the airport on March 20, the airport said today.

Over the past 30 days, travel is up 17 percent at MIA compared to the same period pre-pandemic.

If you think a commercial airline will spur sales just because it’s from the same country country as its developers, you’re blissfully ignorant. It would be like saying more Air France flights mean more investments by Bernard Arnault.

Happy for the growth at MIA. Especially that Turkish is on a daily double. The Air France Miami to Paris second daily is perhaps a result of American canceling their nonstop from Miami. Boeing is delaying their 787 deliveries and AA has had to temporarily cancel a few routes out of Miami

We need to keep investing in our airport as it continues to grow.

If it really had the desire MIA could be the next ATL or DFW, but right now it’s still the red headed stepchild of southern airline hubs

OKAN is actually heavily marketing in Central and South America. I don’t actually know why we don’t hear news about them.
Probably because the architecture is so striking and exquisite and it’s probably not getting built as it’s not a non descript square box

Great architecture, but shitty location. Real estate is Location, Location, and Location. That’s why even in this burning hot market they can”t find enough deposits to go vertical. Waldork-Astoria did even with a goofy rubix-cube design because it has a prime Location.

I don’t care what they teach in Arch class, good arch cannot overcome a bad location.

Not true at all of Turkish Airlines. They had double daily flights last year. This is just a resumption.

The new Turkish flight makes up for the loss of Aeroflot. Istanbul is one of the few ways to get to Russia now.

I wonder how much of Air France’s decision came because American dropped their Miami-CDG route

Btw. ‘Double daily’ means 14x weekly. Which is twice a day, every day.

Huge for the second Turkish flight to go weekly. That one is on their 787, infinitely better J class on that compared to the 77W. Also, the return flight timing is pretty unique/great: westbound redeye leaving Istanbul around 1am and arriving in MIA at 6am.

Not necessarily everyone from Atlanta, but also many from places where ATL is a transfer.
