Miami Airport Parking

Miami International Airport (MIA) offers a variety of parking options from one day parking to long term parking solutions. Off airport parking is available at the lots surrounding the airport and located within one and a half mile (5-10 min shuttle ride) from the terminals. One of the best options for long term parking would be airport hotel parking. Many of the full service hotels around Miami airport offer long term parking. You do not have to stay at the hotel in order to use their parking lot. We recommend is Sheraton Miami Airport Parking, Embassy Suites MIA.

We advise that you arrive at the Miami airport parking facility 30 min before you'd like to be at the terminal. You may only need half of this time, but please allow additional time for any unexpected delays.

Miami International Airport and Parking Guide

Miami International Airport (MIA) is the primary airport serving the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County. It sits on 3,230 acres of land and is operated by Miami-Dade Aviation Department. MIA generates a revenue of around $33.7 billion annually, making it the leading economic driver for Miami-Dade County.

History of MIA

Miami International Airport first opened in the early 1920s as Miami City Airport. Following the initial construction, Pan American Field was built in 1928 by Pan Am World Airways. Occupying 116 acres of land adjacent to Miami City Airport, Pan Am Field was the only mainland airport in the eastern United States with port of entry facilities. During World War II, Miami Army Airfield opened south of Pan American Field, thus expanding aviation facilities in Miami. After the war, the City of Miami purchased and merged Pan American Field with Miami Army Airfield, renaming it to 36th Street Airport. The railroad separating the two fields was moved further south and more land was used to unite and expand both facilities. Throughout the years, the number of flight destinations increased and the facility was renamed to Miami International Airport (MIA).

Present Day MIA

Today, MIA is one of the busiest airports in the nation. MIA serviced over 45 million passengers in 2018, making it the 13th busiest airport in the United States and 40th busiest in the world. With over 1,000 daily flights to 167 domestic and international destinations, MIA caters to destinations in Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, Western Asia, and Latin America. It is also America's third-busiest airport for international travelers and is the largest North American gateway to Latin America.

Most US passenger flights to Central and South America will connect through MIA. Latin American-based airlines that fly out of the airport include: Aerolineas Argentinas, Aeromexico, Air Europa, Avianca, and Copa Airlines. It is also one of the major hubs for American Airlines, which has flights to over 20 Latin American destinations including Belize City, Bogota, Guatemala City, Mexico City, Punta Cana, Quito, San Jose, Tegucigalpa, and Varadero.
