Two years after the pandemic reduced air travel to record lows, Miami International Airport (MIA) is experiencing its busiest year ever and is on track to exceed 50 million annual passengers for the first time in its history. The previous annual record is 45.9 million passengers, set in 2019.

According to statistics released this week, the airport served 25.5 million passengers during the first six months of 2022, an increase of 8.5% from the midpoint of the record year in 2019. Domestic passengers led with an increase 26% compared to 2019 for 15.3 million travelers so far this year, while the number of international passengers of 10.2 million was 10.5% below its 2019 level, but 102 % above the midpoint of last year, as global travel continues to recover steadily.

MIA’s rebound since the pandemic is the strongest among all major US hubs, according to Airports Council International-North America. A recent report by the industry organization ranked MIA as the nation’s fastest growing large airport for airline seat capacity in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the same period in 2019.

“We are delighted to see MIA reach new heights in 2022 and to be on track for our best traffic year yet. Thanks to airlines and federal partners, we are proud to welcome more visitors and cargo to Miami-Dade County than ever before, and look forward to an even more successful second half of the year,” Ralph Cutié, Airport Director and CEO of Miami.
