Miami International Airport (IATA: MIA, ICAO: KMIA, FAA LID: MIA), also known as MIA and historically as Wilcox Field, is the primary airport serving the Miami area. The airport is in an unincorporated area in Miami-Dade County, Florida, 8 miles (13 km) northwest of Downtown Miami, Florida USA. The first airport on the site of MIA opened in the 1920s and was known as Miami City Airport. Pan American World Airways opened an expanded facility adjacent to City Airport, Pan American Field, in 1928. Eastern Airlines began to serve Pan American Field in 1931, followed by National Airlines in 1936. Miami Army Airfield opened in 1943 during the Second World War to the south of Pan American Field. Following World War II in 1945, the City of Miami established a Port Authority and raised bond revenue to purchase Pan American Field and merged with the former Miami Army Airfield. Pan American World Airways and Eastern Airlines are longtime key carrier at MIA. Today the airport is American Airlines primary gateway to Latin America, making the airport the 40th busiest airport in the world in terms of passenger traffic. The airport also ranks as the 12th busiest airport in the United States in terms of passenger traffic, and is also the second busiest airport in the State of Florida. The airport also handled more international cargo than any other airport in the United States.
