All Parking Spaces Are Capped at $17 per Day Effective October 1

(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 
New rates going into effect at Miami International Airport at 12:01 a.m. on October 1 will simplify the cost of parking at MIA to $17 per day, or $2 for every 20 minute increment up to two hours and 40 minutes. The new rate slashes the previous charge of $30 for spaces in the short-term lot immediately outside the airport's Central Terminal while increasing by $2 the maximum daily rate in the Dolphin and Flamingo garages near North and South Terminal. This is the first rate increase at MIA in approximately five years.

“MIA has recently made a number of improvements to expedite the flow of traffic and improve customer service, including the implementation of SunPass Plus and valet parking for both North and South Terminal. With the opening of new terminal facilities for international arrival passengers, all 8,059 of our parking spaces are now considered premium parking spaces depending on your airline,” said Miguel Southwell, Miami-Dade Aviation Department Deputy Director for Business Retention and Development. “The rates have therefore been simplified to reflect this change.”

MIA continues to offer valet parking in the Dolphin and Flamingo garages for $18 within three hours or $30 per day for three hours or more. Economy Park and Ride parking is also available for $3 each hour for the first two hours or a daily rate of $8.
