KMIA Miami International Airport also known as MIA and
historically Wilcox Field, serves as the primary international
airport of the Greater Miami Area. One of the busiest international
airports in the world, Miami International Airport caters to over 35
million passengers a year. Identifiable locally, as well as several
worldwide authorities, as MIA or KMIA, the airport is a major hub
and the single largest international gateway for American Airlines,
the world's second-largest passenger air carrier. Miami
International is the busiest airport in Florida, and is the United
States' second-largest international port of entry for foreign air
passengers after New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport,
and is the seventh-largest such gateway in the world. The airport's
extensive international route network includes non-stop flights to
over seventy international cities in North and South America,
Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
The airport opened to flights in 1928 as Pan American Field, the
operating base of Pan American Airways Corporation, on the north
side of the modern airport property. After Pan Am acquired the New
York, Rio, and Buenos Aires Line it shifted most of its operations
to the Dinner Key seaplane base, leaving Pan Am Field largely unused
until Eastern Air Lines began flying there in 1934, followed by
National Airlines in 1937.

works at the airport, including the demolished C terminal and the

Downtown Miami, primarily in metropolitan Miami, Florida, United
States, with a portion within the city proper of Opa-locka. The
airport's control tower is manned from 7:00 AM to 9:00 PM.
In 1926 Glenn Curtiss founded the City of Opa-locka. In late 1925 he
moved the Florida Aviation Camp from Hialeah to a parcel west of the
city. This small airfield was surrounded by the Opa-locka Golf
Course. In 1929 he transferred this land to the City of Miami, and
the city erected on it a World War I surplus hangar from Key West.
This field became known as the Municipal Blimp Hangar. The following
year, the Goodyear Blimp started operations out of this hangar. In
1928 Curtiss made a separate donation of land south of Opa-locka for
Miami's first Municipal Airport. The Curtiss Aviation School later
moved from Biscayne Bay to this airport. In 1937 Amelia Earhart
started her attempt to circumnavigate the world from this airport.
For the year 1967 Opa-locka was the 2nd busiest civil airport in the
country by total operations count.
