Miami International Airport to be improved under new campaign

DORAL, FL – Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava together with Ralph Cutié, the director and chief executive officer of the Miami-Dade Aviation Department, launched the new “#IamMIA” campaign aimed at improving customers’ experience at Miami International Airport.

The new plan unveiled this week will include new restrooms, escalators, moving walkways, and boarding bridges. “We are hiring additional lightning crew members who will prioritize last-minute maintenance issues that affect our visitors and our employees on a daily basis,” Levine Cava said while wearing blue “I AM ? MIA” safety vests.

Previously, the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners had adopted a $7 billion capital improvement program with projects for the next five to 15 years, which Levine Cava talked about in January as part of her efforts to address the neglect Miami International Airport has been subjected to.

The program includes the expansion of South Terminal Concourses H and J, two new hotels, landside projects, and expanded aircraft parking positions and warehouses for cargo operations.

Parking Garage 6, a 7-floor building with over 2,200 parking spaces, was under construction to increase the parking capacity at Miami International Airport to nearly 10,000 spaces next year, Local 10 News reported.

In addition, back in January the mayor also mentioned a $1.7 million in maintenance upgrades, while in February, the U.S. Deputy Secretary of Transportation Polly Trottenberg rejoiced over a $27 million project at the Central Terminal and Concourses E and F.
