Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava and officials from Miami International Airport (MIA) celebrated the inauguration of the latest glass passenger boarding bridge at gate H17, marking a milestone in the airport’s ongoing modernization efforts.

Daniella Levine Cava, Miami-Dade County Mayor said: “I am so proud to unveil our newest glass bridge at MIA and announce our ambitious plans to introduce 60 more, making MIA the largest user of these energy-efficient innovations in the country.

“These bridges not only enhance the traveler experience but also demonstrate our commitment to sustainability and innovation.”

The unveiling of the glass bridge at gate H17 follows the introduction of a similar structure at gate D14 in winter 2022.

Ralph Cutié, MIA Director and CEO: “The boarding bridge is that critical first step a visitor takes into MIA and Miami-Dade County.

“What better way to give a positive first impression of our County than to see our magnificent Miami skyline as soon as you exit your flight?

“Our boarding bridges are also the first step a passenger takes into our M.I.A. Plan, which is modernizing the entire airport experience from the cabin to the curb.”

The airport’s Modernization in Action (M.I.A.) Plan has modernized 30 other gates since 2019 with new boarding bridges.
