Coronavirus can’t keep Miami Tourism down. Miami International Airport still seeing future demand for 2 hotels and more.

Chairwoman Audrey Edmonson’s policy council lead the charge for the massive new development. Aviation Director Lester Sola said that once the airport operations resume, there will be a “significant” demand for added hotel space there.

There is still a significant demand for an existing hotel. It was built in 1959, in what is now Concourse E. The aged hotel “provides an incredible amount of revenue,” said the Airport Director. Despite being “updated several times, it often doesn’t have enough rooms for the amenities,” he said. “The answer is, airport hotels are very economically viable for the operation.”

At Chairwoman Edmonson’s request, county attorneys were directed to draft an RFP to hold an open competition of bids to build up to two hotels at Miami International Airport. The item, set to return within 60 days for approval then release.

Off to the races!
