Miami International Airport began 2015 by setting two consecutive single-day passenger records. On Saturday, January 3, a record 145,891 passengers traveled through the global gateway, which was surpassed the following day when a new all-time record of 146,257 passengers flew in and out of MIA.
The two consecutive records highlighted a strong holiday travel season at MIA, which welcomed more than 2.1 million passengers since December 21.
MIA officials broke down the record figures as: 1,036 passenger flights, 72,358 international passengers, 67,062 domestic passengers and 6,837 transborder passengers
MIA is poised for continued success in 2015 with the introduction of American Airlines service to four new domestic destinations in March, new service to Manchester, England on Thomas Cook Airlines in May, and charter service by the new Eastern Air Lines projected to begin in the second quarter.
