MIA wins anna.aero US ANNIE Prize 2010


ImageThe Airline and Airport News & Analysis website anna.aero has awarded Miami International Airport with the anna.aero US ANNIE Prize 2010 “Airport With The Most New International Routes.” In total MIA had seven route launches to new non-US destinations in Italy, Germany, the Caribbean, and South America in the 12 months to October.

Those new destinations are: George Town, Bahamas (American Airlines); Monterrey, Mexico (Aeromexico); Munich, Germany (Lufthansa); North Eleuthera, Bahamas (American); Montevideo, Uruguay (American); Milan Malpensa, Italy (Alitalia); and Cayman Brac, Cayman Islands (Cayman Airways).

For a full table see http://www.anna.aero/2010/10/13/us-annies-airport-awards/. The new routes represented a net increase of six international services, more than any other US airport. The runner-up was Charlotte, NC, with five new international destinations.

“The importance of the anna.aero U$ ANNIE Prizes are their basis on science, statistics and evidence rather than merely the opinions of a panel of judges or votes. Using OAG schedule data for over 670 airports and almost 100 airlines operating in the US market, our team of data experts have pored over the figures and come up with a transparent way of rewarding airlines and airports that have achieved notable route and traffic-related success in the US during the last year,” said anna.aero Editor Ralph Anker, himself a former route planner with the European low cost airline easyJet.
