Despite the fact that September is traditionally one of the slowest travel months - if not the slowest - in South Florida, MIA traffic continued to grow at a very healthy rate. Compared to September 2006, international traffic was up 14.81% and domestic traffic was up 10.43%. YTD overall traffic is up a healthy 3.02% (1.85% domestic/4.44% international).

American Airlines, of course, remains MIA's largest carrier. AA's traffic in September was up 13.92% while American Eagle was up 9.17%. Delta Airlines', MIA's second largest carrier, saw traffic rise a healthy 5.34% (excluding regional affiliates).

For the most parts, domestic airlines showed impressive traffic growth compared to September 2006. US Airways is up 12.90%, AirTran was up a very impressive 45.36%, and now carried more traffic in September at MIA than Northwest Airlines did. Only Alaska Airlines saw a drop among domestic carriers, down 2.1% (although, YTD, they are up 10.22%).

Avianca up 24.66%, Aeropostal soared 80.79%, LACSA up 59.5%, and TACA soared 36.74%. All four LAN airlines saw extremely healthy growth, especially with LAN Ecuador soaring 51.19% and LAN Peru up 20.01%. Only two Latin airlines saw traffic fall, with Santa Barbara down 6.97% and AeroMexico down 4.83%.

Among European/Middle Eastern airlines, LTU soared 70.75%, El Al up 33.63%, Virgin up 29.57%, Swiss up 21.48%, and Martinair Holland up 19.17%. Alitalia was the poorest performer, however, seeing September traffic fall 4.21% (perhaps a result of reduced consumer confidence with the recent Alitalia fiasco, as Alitalia's YTD traffic at MIA was up a healthy 4.51%), Air France down 3.03% (including their Caribbean flights), and Lufthansa was down 2.67%.

Highest average load factors was, as always, El Al.

The percentages are not adjusted for capacity changes. For example, LTU's 70% jump is partly thanks to an increase in service from 3x weekly to 5x weekly.

Those numbers are impressive but when AA's winter schedule kicks in next month they will have about 200 daily flights thats the same number for the past 3 years or so.Bigger planes being used justifies part of it but I am still waiting for this to translate into AA addind 30+ flights from Miami.It is positive news though hopefully Miami can regain the title of Florida's busieat airport.

AA will have roughly 260 daily flights this winter, roughly a dozen more than last year. It is short of their record in the late 1990s, but, remember, the Saabs are gone. They are at a record for mainline service, and it has grown by at least 6 daily flights for the past three years.

I have gotten conflicting info about whether MIA has one of those nifty automamated people-mover systems.

Does it? If so, then I shall pay a visit. If not, I may as well use FLL.



Pancakes are delicious.

There's a people mover that takes passengers between the low Concourse E gates and the high Concourse E gates in the satellite terminal. Even though AA uses E, there's no way to guarantee that your flight will be arriving there. There's also a people mover under construction that will run the length of the North Terminal, but it won't be open for at least three years.

Combined it will be 263 daily flights this winter. 211 mainline/52 Eagle. Tentative plans put at 5-8% growth in daily flights by then end of 2008, so that should put it around 275-285 daily flights by December 2008.

One thing that is for sure is that they are using a lot more widebodies now then they were. For example, on Saturdays this winter there will be nine daily 777 turn-arounds, the most of any AA station.

The triple 7 going out of MIA 9 times thats up 2 from what we are use to seeing 2008 looks to be a very promising.

MIA themselves. They publish the data monthly.
