MIA Reopens Concourses Closed By Pandemic

Miami International Airport (MIA) announced it is reopening its Concourse E international arrivals facility and its Concourse F gates this week for the first time since the pandemic began in early 2020.

Passengers arriving on international flights at MIA’s concourses E and F – except those by American Airlines – will now have their passports screened at the reopened Concourse E federal inspection area and exit into the international greeter’s lobby located on the ground level near Door 11. Fourteen airlines that previously used the Concourse D international arrivals facility will now use the reopened Concourse E facility

All inbound international passengers at MIA are screened with Simplified Arrival, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s enhanced passport clearance process that uses facial biometrics to automate the manual document checks already required for admission into the U.S. The expedited, touchless process screens as many as 10 passengers per minute.

MIA also reopened the 17-gate Concourse F, which was refurbished during the past 18 months with new lighting, flooring, seating, painting, ceiling tiles and signage.
