Passenger traffic up at MIA

Miami Herald

Miami International Airport saw a boost in passenger traffic for the first six months of 2011 compared to the same time in 2010.

Between January and June, 18.8 million travelers came through the airport — a 6.8 percent increase compared to a year earlier.

New flights, including routes to Amsterdam, Barcelona, London and Lisbon, helped boost the numbers. International traffic increased 8.4 percent and domestic travel grew 5.4 percent.

(PBI) Palm Beach International Airport

Airport neighbors: noise group should stay, not have duties shifted to another committee
Palm Beach Post

Nearly two months after recommending Palm Beach County commissioners disband an advisory board dedicated to dealing with airport noise, managers at Palm Beach International now say another airport committee might be able to take over the responsibility.

Airport Director Bruce Pelly recommended in June that the county commission consider eliminating the Citizens Committee on Airport Noise, an advisory board created in 1982 to help create programs and listen to complaints about jet traffic at the airport. He also recommended that the county do away with 11 electronic noise monitors scattered in neighborhoods on all sides of the airport.

The programs, he said, were costly and essentially useless.

But after the recommendations were aired in The Palm Beach Post, they drew criticism from local politicians and airport neighbors. And while airport managers still hope to kill the electronic noise monitors and noise board, they now say another committee, the Aviation and Airports Advisory Board (AAAB) -- which traditionally made recommendations on general airport issues -- could be tasked to hear noise complaints.

"If the community wanted to come to a board, they could always come to the AAAB," county airports spokeswoman Casandra Davis said Monday. "We will still have a place for them to come and voice their opinion."

The changed recommendation has not convinced critics.

"If you go back and look at the purpose for both groups, one is specifically for noise and the other has nothing to do with noise," said Nancy Pullum, a resident of West Palm Beach's historic El Cid neighborhood and member of the advisory board.

Noise boards and monitoring programs are used by airports across the country to "work cooperatively with the community," Pullum said.

"You go on the websites of medium, large and small airports all over this nation and noise is an issue," Pullum said. "Many of them are using noise monitors and boards."

Over the past month, West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio and Palm Beach Mayor Gail Coniglio sent letters to county commissioners, urging them not to eliminate the two programs. County Commissioner Paulette Burdick, whose district includes the airport, has also said she is opposed to the programs' elimination.

Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Broward County has had a noise committee since 1991. There are 11 noise monitors surrounding that airport, Spokesman Gregory Meyer said.

At Palm Beach International, monitors record sound levels around the airport. The monitors are the only real measurement of the amount of noise created each time an airplane takes off or lands.

Pelly has said that regardless of how loud an airplane is, he can't stop it from flying, so the program serves no purpose. Noise recorded by the monitors can't be used to get federal money to buy sound insulation for nearby homes or purchase property in the flight path, he said.

Noisy jets, classified as Stage 2 aircraft, have been phased out for use by commercial airlines, so the area is getting quieter regardless of whether the airport has monitors, he has said.

The Airport Noise and Capacity Act of 1990 required that all new aircraft meet quieter, Stage 3, noise levels. That legislation also removed local governments' ability to block specific types of planes from using their airports, Pelly said.

The Citizens Committee on Airport Noise is scheduled to discuss Pelly's recommendations Thursday . The meeting begins at 9 a.m. and will be held in Building 846 at the airport.

Eliminating the two programs would save the airport about $98,000 a year, managers have said.

Flight disruptions persist at South Florida airports
Sun-Sentinel

Flight cancellations continue at South Florida airports in the wake of Irene’s rampage across the Northeastern United States.

Several flights to and from Palm Beach International Airport slated for Northeast cities including Boston, New York and Newark were listed as cancelled Monday, according to airport’s website.

Shortly after 5 p.m. there were seven cancelled arriving and departing flights and one arrival delay listed for the West Palm Beach airport.

At Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport there were 28 arrival and 18 departure storm-related flight cancellations as of 4:45 p.m. Monday, an official said.
Twenty-one flights were reported as delayed, with average delay times ranging from 55 minutes to an hour.

Affected destinations were mainly in the Northeast U.S. including Boston, Newark, Washington Dulles and Hartford.

At Miami International Airport, there were 20 arrival and departure cancellations as of 4 p.m. due to Tropical Storm Irene. No delay information was reported.

The good news is that many airports along the Northeast are now open for business.

Charter flights from Fort Lauderdale to Cuba start Sept. 17
Palm Beach Post

Charter flights from Fort Lauderdale to Cuba will start a few days later than planned on Sept. 17, the company organizing the trips confirmed.

Airline Brokers Co. had aimed to start charters on Monday, flying twice a week from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to Havana.

But instead, it will kick off with flights once a week departing Saturdays at 12:30 p.m., using an A320 aircraft operated by JetBlue Airways.

Plans call for expanding to twice-a-week service later, pending approval from Cuban authorities, said Airline Brokers President Vivian Mannerud.

Both the U.S. and Cuban governments have authorized new charters in recent months to fly between more U.S. airports and Cuba. Flights from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Cuba began Aug. 26, and service from Tampa starts this week.

U.S. charters to Cuba had been allowed for decades only from Miami, New York and Los Angeles airports.

Airline Brokers is an U.S. government-licensed charter operator founded in 1982. It is based in Coral Gables and has a Fort Lauderdale office. It now offers nine flights a week between Miami and Cuba.

The company provides flights to Cuba for U.S. government-approved travelers and groups to re-connect with family or for licensed academic, intellectual, cultural, scientific, humanitarian, and religious activities in Cuba.

Initial travelers from Fort Lauderdale to Cuba are expected to be mostly Cuban-Americans visiting family on the island, including many who live in Palm Beach County, travel agents say.

MIA's New North Terminal International Arrivals Facility Set To Open



Quote:


Miami International Airport will reveal its new, 400,000-square-foot, three-level North Terminal international arrivals facility July 31, according to the South Florida Business Journal. The $2.9 billion North Terminal is now one of the only U.S. airports with six dedicated lanes for Global Entry, which provides speedier processing for travelers who register with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. MIA is ranked number one for international flights in the U.S., with nearly 1,300 weekly flights to some 85 international destinations. The increasing international traffic through MIA’s North Terminal has recently caused a concessions sales boom, with tenants fighting for space

MIA terminal could become large retail complex


http://www.miasci.org/blog/team/architectural-team

Plans to transform Miami International Airport’s Landside Terminal into a nine-story, 160-foot shopping mall with hotel and office space have been proposed, according to Miami Today. The project comes as Miami experiences a post-recession retail renaissance with major commercial developments taking over the Design District and downtown.

“It would be a large retail development unlike what we have in travel anywhere in the United States,” said Jose Ramos, a county aviation department employee. At the same time, construction on MIA’s North Terminal, which has been ongoing since 1998, is scheduled to be completed this month.

Miami-Dade Transit has officially opened the new Miami International Airport station of the Metrorail. The services 23rd station is a 2.4-mile extension to MIA, running parallel to State Road 112 and crossing the Miami River. This is a big step in the right direction for public transportation in our community, said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez. The MIA Station will eventually connect passengers to the Miami Central Station, which is slated for completion in 2013. Alexander Britell
