¶ … Capacity

In 2014, Miami International Airport processed 399,048 flight operations, breaking down as 209,601 domestic and 189,447 international. A total of 40.9 million passengers went through the airport, for a daily average of 116,802. It serves 150 destinations non-stop and a further 8 destinations on a one-stop basis. The airport also moves 2.17 million tons of freight in a year and has hubs for both FedEx and UPS, among other freight carriers.

The recent additions appear to have eased the pressures that this high amount of demand brought to the airport. The airport was at 3.5 million square feet prior to the recent expansions, but now has 7.5 million square feet. Because of these expansions, the company has added service in 2015 to five U.S. destinations and another 3 international destinations. Growth, which had more or less stagnated in the 33 to 35 million mark, has been able to grow with the new expansions.

The current load -- 20 million international visitors -- equates to around 2300 arrivals per hour. Given that said arrivals do not arrive in an even distribution, the airport needs to have capacity well above the 2300 level, but triple that...

The old terminal is slated to be replaced, and that could affect capacity for domestic passengers. The airport is presently using capacity at the two new terminals to transition away from the original terminal. As a result, the original terminal expansion will give MIA the capacity that it needs to grow well into the 21st century. The airport also added during this period a new runway, new taxiways, midfield apron improvements, NAV/AIDS and additional capacity for things like water and air conditioning. Seventeen new cargo buildings for a total of 2.7 million square feet were also added during the recent rounds of expansion.

All told, current capacity at MIA is for around 70 million passengers per year, much more than…
