What you need to know if you'll be flying to Miami for the Super Bowl

As featured in yesterday’s tip, a number of major airlines in the U.S. (AA, Delta, JetBlue, Spirit, Southwest, and United) will be operating extra flights to/from South Florida on and around Super Bowl weekend. The game will kick off around 6:30pm ET on Sunday, February 2, and thousands will be flying to Miami to be there.

If you’ll be one of the many flying or planning to be flying in for Super Bowl LIV, you can expect a lot of excitement and large crowds. Anticipating this, Miami International Airport (MIA) has put together a guide to help visitors find their way. Among the things to keep in mind, from the guide:

When arriving at MIA

  • Uber/Lyft/etc. pick-up: Ride app pickup zones are located on the Arrivals Level (1) at the middle median outside of doors 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 11, 15, 20 and 23.
  • Hotel shuttle pick-up: Hotel shuttle bus pick-up zones are also on the Arrivals Level, at these locations.
  • Car rentals: For car rental or public transportation, follow the purple signs to the MIA Mover, for a two-minute people mover ride to the Miami Intermodal Center.

If departing MIA on February 3

If you’ll be flying out of MIA on Monday, February 3, the guide notes that you should arrive at the airport three hours before your departure. Additionally, “due to increased vehicle traffic expected at MIA…all ride app passengers will be dropped off at the MIA Rental Car Center. Passengers then will hop on the MIA Mover for a two-minute ride to the MIA station, located on the airport’s 3rd level between the Dolphin and Flamingo garages. The station is at the center of MIA and is connected by moving walkways to all sections of the terminal building.”

For anyone flying home with a Super Bowl program

From the guide: “Also, don’t let the TSA call a personal foul on your Super Bowl program. Don’t pack your program in your checked luggage. It is made of material that may alert the TSA screening machines. To get through the checkpoint quicker, take the program out of your carry-on and place it in its own bin.”

    What kind of material could a Super Bowl program be made of other than paper?
