MIA now gets passengers from the runway to the roadway faster than ever before with the MIA Mover, a 1.25-mile-long automated people mover system between MIA and the Miami Rental Car Center that opened to the public on September 9.  More than 200 business and community leaders joined officials from Miami-Dade County and the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) on September 8 for an inaugural celebration and preview of the MIA Mover before its public opening on September 9.

With a top speed of 40 miles per hour, the MIA Mover has the capacity to transport more than 3,000 passengers per hour free of charge directly between MIA and the Rental Car Center’s customer service lobby just east of Le Jeune Road.  MIA passengers simply exit their concourse and take elevators to MIA’s third level moving walkway, which quickly connects them to the MIA Mover.  It also completely replaces the Rental Car Center shuttle bus service previously in operation, eliminating approximately 1,400 shuttle bus trips per day and reducing carbon emissions from MIA’s roadways by 30 percent.  The system’s MIA Station is also the first mass transit project in Miami-Dade County to be Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold-certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.  Continue

CBS Miami  --MIA’s New People Mover Gets Movin’ Friday

 

Miami international Airport has made it easier for tourists to get from the airport to where they can rent a vehicle. “From now on people will be able to go directly to the rental car center in a much more efficient way,” said Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez during the inauguration of the new MIA Mover, a new light rail people mover which operates between the airport and the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC), which is about a mile and quarter away. “From plane to train to car that’s basically it,” said airport spokesman Marc Henderson. With a top speed of 40 miles per hour, the MIA Mover can make the trip to the Rental Car Center at the MIC in about three minutes. “It’s a nice ride, it’s a great view of downtown Miami and you see how beautiful this place really is,” Gimenez said.

The electric-powered mover can transport 3,000 passengers per hour and is eco-friendly, reducing fuel emissions by 15 percent."Our visitors always look for easy. They want to be able to get in after a long flight, get their bags, get out and enjoy where they are going," said Henderson. The new system will also help with traffic around the airport as it replaces the shuttle bus service. "This way, passengers come directly to the rental car center. It will be much better for them, much better for us, and it's just another step in the transformation of this airport," Gimenez said. The MIA Mover can travel 40 mph and takes three minutes to get to the airport from the rental car center. It will be up and running Friday. Continue Click here to download Adobe Reader

Miami International Airport on Thursday unveiled its MIA Mover, an elevated people mover that will transport travelers from the airport terminal to the rental car center. The mover travels 1.25 miles from the third floor of the airport terminal, across LeJeune Road to the MIA Rental Car Center, which opened in July 2010 and houses operations for 16 rental car companies. It can transport up to 3,000 passengers an hour, features eight train cars and will help reduce airport fuel emissions by 15 percent. The project created 1,000 jobs and was completed on time and under budget by $5 million, which will be returned to Miami-Dade County, said Gilberto Neves, president and CEO of Odebrecht USA.

The MIA Mover, Miami Central Station, rental car center and several highway improvements comprise the Miami Intermodal Center project, Miami-Dade County’s first transportation hub, which is being developed by the Florida Department of Transportation    .

In a close contest, Miami International Airport edged out three-time winner Edmonton International Airport, and is receiving the top honor, the Peggy G. Hereford Overall Award for Excellence.

Hereford, a founding member of the ACI-NA Marketing and Communications Committee, sought to capture the energy of aviation and unleash it to the world. She served as the Public Affairs Director at Los Angeles International, and elevated the profession of public relations in the aviation field to new heights.

The Peggy G. Hereford award winner, Miami International Airport, placed in five categories:

"We are honored to be this year's recipient of the Peggy G. Hereford Award and to be recognized by industry experts across the nation for our marketing and communications efforts," said Miami-Dade Aviation Director José Abreu."

Miami International Airport--particularly the D Terminal--continues to spruce itself up, first with respectable places to eat and drink, and now with a brand new sundries shop. OK, so it's not exactly haute couture, but if you want labels, MIA has those too: there's a Coach, Thomas Pink and even an Emporio Armani also right there in AA's D gates area.

Fashion cred aside, we were stoked to welcome Air Essentials to MIA. We're used to seeing shops like this--a pharmacy without the Rx drugs, basically--in European and Australian airports, and wish more U.S. cities would follow suit and get themselves one, too. If not Air Essentials, even a good ol' CVS or Walgreens would do. Continue Click here to download Adobe Reader

Security Wait Times for All Major U.S. Airports  Click here to download Adobe Reader

Farecompare - Security Wait Times for All Major U.S. Airports 

 

Finding out the average airport security wait time is not as easy as it appears. The Transportation Security Agency used to have this information on its website, but they took it down in 2009. Now they have an app you can use, either on your computer or mobile device, to find out current airport security wait times. The Customs and Border Protection Agency also has a web page that can fetch average security wait times for an airport for a given time period, but the data is incomplete.

Sometimes this information is listed on an airport’s website, and some airport security information is available from news stories on the web. But there is no definitive, one-stop site to navigate in order to find out once and for all what the average security wait time is for any airport. With that in mind, we have compiled the following table of the 25 busiest U.S. airports along with average TSA security wait times. The information was gleaned from a variety of sources.

Average Wait Time for Miami International Airport: 7 minutes

Seven Minutes in Heaven, a collection of seven unique quilts by award-winning textile artist Amy Vigilante, is the latest art exhibition on display at Miami International Airport's Central Terminal Gallery in Concourse E.

Seven Minutes in Heaven
Textile works by Amy Vigilante

“Vigilante is an artist who creates her designs based on her own experiences and surroundings, down to the names of the quilts - all named after small dogs belonging to family and friends," states Yolanda Sanchez, Ph.D., Miami-Dade Aviation Department Division Director of Fine Arts and Cultural Affairs. “Sometimes the patterns are chaotic and sometimes calm, just as the uncertainty of a hurricane, yet always a symbol of warmth, safety and comfort during troubling times.”


From left to right: Amy Vigilante's quilts Yogi, 2009 and Cubby, 2011,
are both named after dogs belonging to family and friends.

Vigilante has been Director of the University Galleries at the University of Florida since 2002. She has a Master of Fine Arts in Painting and a doctorate degree in Art Education from Florida State University. As a practicing artist, Vigilante has exhibited in numerous group and solo shows and has received several awards including a State of Florida Individual Artist's Fellowship. Her current work in textiles has traveled to eight venues in Florida and Georgia since 2008. Continue.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has announced that this fall it will test enhancements to its pre-flight, identity-based screening capabilities through a partnership with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and American Airlines at MIA.  During the first phase of testing, certain frequent fliers and certain members of CBP's Trusted Traveler programs, including members of Global Entry, SENTRI, and NEXUS who are U.S. citizens, will be eligible to participate in this pilot program that could qualify them for expedited screening at select checkpoints at four U.S. airports.

TSA plans to expand this pilot to include United Airlines, Southwest, JetBlue, US Airways, Alaska Airlines, and Hawaiian Airlines, as well as additional airports, once operationally ready.  For more information on TSA and updates regarding its screening procedures, visit the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) or Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
