Miami International Airport (IATA: MIA, ICAO: KMIA, FAA LID: MIA) is a public airport located eight miles northwest of the central business district of Miami, in unincorporated Miami-Dade County, Florida. It is between the cities of Miami, Hialeah, Doral, Miami Springs, village of Virginia Gardens, and the community of Fountainbleau in southern Florida.

Miami International Airport handles flights to cities throughout the Americas and Europe, as well as Israel and cargo flights to Asia, and is South Florida's main airport for long-haul international flights, although most domestic and low-cost carriers use Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Palm Beach International Airport, which charge significantly lower fees to airline companies.

Miami is the premier gateway between the US and Latin America. Miami is one of the largest aerial gateways into the American South, owing to its proximity to tourist attractions, local economic growth, large local Latin American and European populations, and strategic location to handle connecting traffic between North America, Latin America, and Europe. As an international gateway to the United States it ranks third. In 2006, over 32 million passengers traveled through the airport.

In 1945, the City of Miami established a Port Authority and raised money with a bond revenue to buy the airport, which was known as the 36th Street Airport. The old terminal on 36th Street was closed in 1959 when the modern passenger terminal opened for service.

The main terminal at MIA is semicircular and has eight pier-shaped concourses, lettered A through J. Ticketing and departures are located on the upper level and baggage carousels are located on the lower level, the airport contains three customs arrival levels. Two parking garages, the Dolphin and Flamingo Garages, are located inside the terminal's curvature, and are connected to the terminal by overhead walkways.
