Airlines work towards a full schedule at Miami

Passenger and cargo flights at Miami International Airport (MIA) continue to increase toward a full daily schedule after starting up yesterday.

There were 158 arrivals and 100 departures on 12 September, but a total of 526 flights were cancelled. There were also 147 cargo-only flights.

MIA says the projected schedule for today (Wednesday) includes 225 arrival flights and 208 departures, with a total of 402 flights cancelled – which is about 50 per cent of MIA’s normal schedule.

Full flight operations by all airlines are expected sometime this weekend.

Miami-Opa locka Executive Airport and Miami Executive Airport are both open, but the FAA tower is closed for damage assessment. Flights are operating with pilot-to-pilot communication.

Hurricane Irma pounded the Miami and southern Florida area until yesterday and winds reached 135mph.
