Miami is a large city located in the south-eastern portion of USA. It has high tourism ratings that usually exceed 300 each but have slightly lower business ratings that range from 150 to 250. It is one of the few cities that will receive the "Rising Tour Destination" News Report and the city's ratings will increase shortly afterwards.
The default airport here is Miami International Airport (MIA).
This is a popular city to fly to, but maybe not too wildly popular to start at. Due to this, beginners are recommended to start here. The city is in a perfect position to create routes to Europe (e.g. Paris and Rome), West America (e.g. Vancouver and San Diego) and South America (e.g. Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro) It's high tourism ratings make it a good place to run passenger operations and competition is quite manageable as it is not as intense as New York or Atlanta. In addition, the city is able to sustain moderate competition. However, cargo operations are recommended to remain only in the short to medium range sector due to it's slightly unstable business ratings.
Miami International Airport will attain maximum slot usage, but this will normally does not occur. Even if it does, its usually happens rather late into the game (after 2000). As such, this airport is a recommended option to buy over from the national government only when a player is considering an airport after the year 2000. However, the profits brought in by the airport at such a late stage may not make too much of a difference to a company's value compared to getting another level 7 or 8 airport earlier on (before or during 1980). Second and third airports are normally unnecessary as the primary airport is already sufficient to meet the demand for slots in Miami. Hence, players are advised not to build second or third airports in this city.
Recommended features for planes meant for passenger operations include having high satisfaction and a medium to large capacity. Aircraft such as the Boeing 767, Airbus A330, Ilyushin IL-96 and McDonnell Douglas MD-11 are suitable examples. Smaller aircraft should be avoided for routes to large cities to minimise the number of planes used on a route. This is to keep depreciation as low as possible. For cargo operations, aircraft with small to medium capacity like the Airbus A310F, Tupolev Tu-204-100C and Boeing 737F are recommended, although larger aircraft like the Airbus A330-200F, McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30F and Ilyushin IL-96 are also acceptable to large cities like London or Los Angeles. The largest planes like the Airbus A380F and the Boeing 747F are best avoided for Miami as high maintenance costs and depreciation may negate any profits made from the route.
