The study, ranked the 30 busiest U.S. airports based on five factors: transit accessibility; on-time arrival performance; overall quality satisfaction; parking rates; and nearby hotel.
According to FAA and U.S. DOT data used in the study, MIA served 20.8 million enplaned passengers in 2016 and had a 79.1 percent on-time arrival performance in 2017 – both numbers ranking highest among Florida airports. The airport also received high marks in transit, which were calculated based on transit time, driving time, transit fare price, and the cost of pre-booked UberX rides to or from the airport. In comparison to competitors, MIA also stood out for its high overall quality and service, as well as the availability of more affordable nightly rates at nearby hotels.
