Miami International Airport
In addition to extensive service to the Americas and the Caribbean, MIA also has non-stop flights to 14 European airports served by American Airlines and several European carriers. Qatar Airways operates the only flight to the Middle East, with 4 flights weekly to Doha. The airport has no non-stop service to East or South Asia, Africa, or Oceania. The recent construction of two new terminals at MIA has helped with the airport's passenger capacities as well as the efficiency in going through customs and baggage claim.

Connecting flightsIf you arrive from an international location and need to transfer, be aware that you always have to go through immigration and customs before you can board your connecting flight. This can take up to three hours. Most nationalities also need a transit visa or travel authorization even if they are entering the US solely for transit.
By carYour best option is to take a taxi from the airport, use a ride-sharing app, or rent a car, depending on what your stay involves (if you need to get around parts of Miami with no nearby Metrorail stations). MIA has a centralized Rental Car Center at 3900 NW 25th Street, connected to the terminal by the free MIA Mover train. Taxis pick up from in front of the 1st Level of each terminal.
Two freeways link the airport with I-95 and Downtown Miami to the east: the Airport Expressway (Florida State Road 112) and the Dolphin Expressway (Florida State Road 836), both of which charge tolls. If you are approaching or leaving MIA via the Airport Expressway, beware of the at-grade railroad crossing on the ramps connecting the Expressway to the airport terminals. Normally such crossings are grade-separated, but this one sits directly east of one of the runways. Thus, be prepared for the possibility of a 10-15 minute delay if a train happens to be there at the same time as you.
By public transportationMiami Central Station, adjacent to the Rental Car Center and connected to the airport terminal by the free MIA Mover train, is a transit hub with public transportation connections to MIA, including the Metrorail Orange Line and several Metrobus routes, including the Miami Beach Airport Flyer express bus to Miami Beach. See the Miami#Get around section for detailed fare information.
Miami Central Station is also slated to be the future southern terminus for the Tri-Rail commuter rail line to Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, with Amtrak service to eventually follow. While construction on the Tri-Rail station continues, a shuttle bus (Metrobus Route 133) connects the airport terminal (picking up from in front of the 1st Level of the Central and South Terminals) to the Hialeah Market Tri-Rail station, the current southern terminus of the line.
There is a system of moving walkways on the 3rd floor of the terminals, called the "Skyride Connector", that connects the terminals and the MIA Mover station, but only landside. There's virtually no airside transportation between the terminals, so if you have to change between terminals to make a connection, you will have to go through security again. The only exceptions are a people mover post-security (the "Skytrain", operating 4AM–11:45PM) that allows for quick connections between gates in Concourse D, stopping at Gates D17, D24, D29 and D46, a walkway that connects terminals D and E, and Concourse E also has a people mover post-security on the 4th Level that connects the terminal with the satellite building.
There are a few small art galleries in and around the walkway connecting concourses D and E.

The town of Brownsville is close to the airport and easily accessible by Metrorail, but it's pretty unsafe—better to take Metrorail all the way to Miami if you're looking to spend a few hours outside the airport.
