Miami International Airport added eight new carriers in 2014, which are expected to create 6,800 direct and indirect jobs in Miami-Dade County and generate business revenues of more than $830 million.
The study, by Martin Associates, assumes that the new carriers – two cargo and six passenger airlines – will operate at MIA for a full year. Finnair and Frontier Airlines, which launched in December, are included in the report.
With the addition of those airlines, the airport has 100 air carriers. Its overall economic impact is $33.5 billion.
