On Wednesday, April 11, federal, state and county officials held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate Kendall-Tamiami Executive Airport's newly extended runway, which adds 1,000-feet to the airport's primary 5,000-foot south runway.
Cutting the ceremonial ribbon, from left to right: Florida Department of Transportation District Six Secretary Gus Pego; State Representative Frank Artiles; U.S. Representative David Rivera; Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez; U.S. Representative Mario Diaz-Balart; Board of County Commissioners Chairman Joe A. Martinez; FAA Program Manager Krystal Ritchey; and Miami-Dade Aviation Director José Abreu.
The new runway will allow nearly any of the new generation corporate and private jet aircraft to carry increased fuel and/or cargo load and fly to key destinations in Central and South America and the Caribbean, which was previously impossible without intermediate refueling stops. Kendall-Tamiami serves as a key reliever airport for Miami International Airport, but had been hindered in that effort by the limitations of its former 5,000-foot runways. Continue
