Miami, the success story -part 2-
Last week I ended the first part of this article saying that Miami has become an international magnet. However the city had nine lives before getting there! Indeed, let me remind you that back in 1970 buildings were run down, inhabited by elderly residents, and the criminality rate was hitting its record.
This is why in 1976 Barbara Baer Capitman and her son founded the Miami Design Preservation League. Their objective was simple: to give a second life to the city. They launched the restoration of the Art Deco architecture and the renovation of the Historic District. This started Miami’s revolution.

MIA, 1st international hub in the US
With an average of 1,288 international flights per week against 1,287 for JFK, Miami International Airport is became the 1st airport in the US in terms of international flights. Fort Lauderdale airport and Palm Beach are far behind their neighbor MIA with respectively 400 and 12 international connections per week.
So far this year, MIA airport is even breaking records in overall traffic. With 10.2 million passengers during the first quarter, we reach a 9.5% increase. International passengers represented an 11% increase. The main reason to this surge is the addition of new connections. In February LAN Colombia created 4 direct flights Miami-Bogotá per week and Interjet launched daily flights between Miami and Mexico City. Last month American Airlines added a new connection to Barcelona and daily flight to Kingston. Those new services are definitely helping MIA in staying at the top of the US airports list.
