Miami International Airport | Miami Opa Locka Airport | Miami Kendal-Tamiami Airport | Fort Lauderdale International Airport | Fort Lauderdale Executive


Miami International airport, the closest airport to downtown Miami, offers a variety of lounges for relaxation and business. It also offers the longest runway in the region, making it accessible by all aircraft.

However, due to the heavy amount of traffic, there are many slot restrictions when it comes to private jets landing or taking off here. This can also result in delays, as well as higher operating fees.

PrivateFly would recommend this airport to private jet users only for connecting to commercial flights, or for those flying in from an international location at night, as their customs are available 24 hours a day.

Miami Kendal-Tamiami airport, also known as Miami Executive, is one of the busiest general aviation airports in Florida. A key private jet gateway to and from the Miami area, Kendal-Tamiami is just a 15 minute drive from downtown Miami.
