What Are The Next Potential Routes For MIA?

Wed Mar 27, 2013 2:58 am

Just a quick question:

What airline or route do you believe will start services to MIA in the future
Rumor has Emirates coming later this year, along with Norwegian Air Shuttle at the end.


What about Dublin?
Study supports three weekly A330 (or equivalent) roundtrip passenger frequencies with 80% load factor potential.

Brussels: Feasibility study supports daily A330 or 767 roundtrip passenger frequencies with 75% to 84% load factor potential.

Warsaw: Studies estimates three weekly 767 (or equivalent) roundtrip passenger frequencies would have an 81% load factor potential (for seasonal – winter – service only)

Helsinki: MIA and air service consultant’s joint feasibility study forecasts three weekly A340 or equivalent roundtrip passenger frequencies would have 82% load factor potential.

Istanbul: Turkey-Miami O&D passenger traffic now at over 25,000 passengers a year. Rising Turkish demographic among Florida’s growing population. Miami market now has the third largest Turkish population without direct air service. Optimal behind/beyond traffic flow opportunities: from Eastern Europe and Gulf Region via Istanbul to Miami and beyond to 62 non-stop Latin American/Caribbean markets.

Cape Town: The study found that up to four weekly roundtrip passenger frequencies on A340 aircraft with a 71% load factor potential were realistic, as long as the service originated in, or had a feed from, Johannesburg, and feeds in Miami from Latin America/Caribbean/other US markets

Tokyo: The study also recommended daily roundtrip passenger frequencies 777-300ER , with load factors ranging from 83% to 85%. Japan-Florida O&D passenger traffic ranges between 118,000 and 143,000 annual passengers with 163,000 to 205,000 overall passengers. Miami offers the most opportunities for connections to Brazil and all of Latin American/Caribbean markets for Tokyo’s 325,000 annual O&D traffic travelling to/from Latin America and the Caribbean.

While those are all great, EK has the best chance to start service to MIA. The European economy is not exactly the best and not many carriers are looking to expand to new unproven destinations.

IMO look for the last few South American cities left to receive service to MIA (think COR, BEL, CUZ etc.) to be started by AA. Once Latin America is complete from MIA some more domestic destinations will be added.

I forgot how the MIA-TLV discussion ended, but it seems like a viable route. I also wondered if AA can make MIA-LIS work in coordination with PHL-LIS. How would they compete against TAP.

Well Norwegian Air Shuttle is coming to FLL later this year. I see EK happening in the next 18 months or so. TLV is also a flight I can see within the next two years come back for good. I also expect seeing AA and one world fill out any last few voids in Latin America and the Caribbean and then some domestic expansion maybe places like MCI, AUS, BUF...

Well now that AZ is abandoning MXP once again, seems like another hole opening up to a major European market. Interesting to see if the new AA will connect the dots and compliment JFK (or maybe even move the JFK flight now that EK have announced they are starting the route.

AA won't abandon one of its best performing European routes and EK has not announced JFKMXP.

But AA entering MIAMXP is just a matter of when, not if. AA outlined a plan to grow Miami-secondary Europe as part of its merger, and Milan is absolutely, without doubt, then most logical fifth destination, along with Zurich.

Ah so. I thought EK had announced it. But speaking of Zurich, is this now double daily to MIA from LX. Ive noticed the original LX 64/65 and now also an LX 2666/2667. When did this happen? I assume it is seasonal.

Last year. It runs October-May.

Won't be surprised if it becomes year-round. Huge local market and easily the most premium from Miami after London.

I guess DXB (EK), IST (TK), NRT (AA), VCP (AA), FOR (AA) are likely candidates.

I agree with you.

There was a leak about Emirates starting services to MIA this year.

I'm crossing my fingers for NRT-MIA

And for AF and/or BA to send the A380 into MIA.

There is demand for HEL-MIA route, but Finnair is not going to start it. There are two reasons for this. Firstly they don't have a free plane for that route and secondly that doesn't support their Asian strategy. So it is up to AA.

NRT (AA),

I absolutely expect to see AA launch this route with a mid morning departure time, and a late afternoon arrival back into MIA for S.A. connections. IMO, the 77W would be great for this journey. But I'd also expect AA to start DFW-HKG as well.

I was surprised they picked FLL over MIA. IMO, I believe MIA would do a better job.

From the routes talked about in the OP, don't WAW, BRU and CPT all suffer from having competing alliances having fortress hubs at the other end? IE, you're not going to get feed from LOT on an AA flight WAW-MIA, but LOT or LH won't get feed on the MIA end. Same with SAA and CPT.

Now that Qatar Airways joins Oneworld, there has been talks that Qatar Airways will launch MIA in the near future.
