State-Of-The-Art Facility

Airport news: American Eagle at new Miami North Terminal

Aug 20, 2010

FORT WORTH, TX - American Eagle Airlines has moved its location at the Miami International Airport (MIA) to the new North Terminal. This state-of-the-art facility, housing both American and American Eagle, offers customers improved check-in and domestic baggage claim, with an array of shops and restaurants featuring the flavors of South Florida.

American Eagle has completed the initial phase of its transition to new departure areas at gates D53, D55, and D60.

"We are all excited about our American Eagle facility," said Peter J. Dolara, American's senior vice president based in Miami. "This facility will allow us to better serve our customers and solidify Miami as one of the premier gateways in the country."

The new departure lounge features two concourse-level gates with jetbridges for convenient boarding. When the next phase of construction is complete, lower-level gates will eliminate the need for most shuttle buses to take passengers to awaiting aircraft. A new Skytrain is expected to open in September that will whisk thousands of customers per hour along the 1.4 mile North Terminal concourse, enabling easy connections to American Airlines flights.

"We are excited to move into this beautiful new facility," said Pedro Fabregas, president of American Eagle's operations in Miami and the Caribbean. "The new terminal will not only offer our customers a much more comfortable and enjoyable travel experience, but will provide convenient connections to cities throughout the American Airlines global network."
