Miami International Airport: Gateway to Brazil
For those traveling between Brazil and Florida, Miami International Airport (MIA) goes above and beyond to ensure the comfort and satisfaction of its hundreds of thousands of annual passengers to Brazil. With 144 weekly flights to eleven cities operated by American Airlines, GOL, and TAM, getting to Brazil has never been easier. The airport played a hugely successful role in getting tourists to the FIFA World Cup, and looks forward to providing a smooth travel experience to those going to the 2016 Olympics. In addition, travelers will soon be able to enjoy a taste of Brazil before they leave American soil – Brazilian restaurant chain Viena has chosen Miami International Airport for its first US restaurant location.
Brazil is MIA’s top international market, in addition to serving as a major logistics hub for all of Latin America. Miami International Airport Director Emilio Hernandez elaborated on reasons for the airport’s prominence in the Latin American market: “Miami continues to be a global business hub – when you mix geography, business, and our transportation nodes, it’s a great formula for success.” With regards to Brazil, the airport looks forward to expanding business partnerships and upholding its reputation as America’s gateway to Brazil.
