Quick, name the U.S. airport with the most airlines. If you guessed Miami International Airport, you’re correct. More than 100 passenger and cargo carriers fly from the Florida hub, more than any other U.S. airport, according to airport spokesman Greg Chin.
For airline enthusiasts, the long lineup of carriers flying from Miami’s airport can make for a stellar day of planespotting. To get a sense of the variety of airlines (and airplanes) flying through the airport on any given day, we sent Today in the Sky contributor Jeremy Dwyer-Lindgren there for a day of picture-taking.
From a rare Venezuelan airline’s Airbus A300 to a Convair 5800 cargo plane, Miami lived up to its reputation as a planespotter’s haven. There even was a Shorts 360 turboprop that almost certainly once flew for American Eagle. Check out the above gallery for 31 shots from Miami that include everything from the obscure to the airport’s top carrier, American Airlines.
