PS to open Miami International Airport’s first private terminal
PS has expanded to Miami International Airport (MIA), where it will open the airport’s first private terminal in 2025.
To be based in the former Pan American Regional Headquarters, PS’ new facility is being designed by architect Richard Heisenbottle. The project will bring together a team experienced in historic preservations who will build in accordance with the Miami-Dade County Historic Preservation Ordinance and the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for the Restoration and Rehabilitation of Historic Structures.
Amina Belouizdad Porter, CEO of PS, said: “As the nation’s busiest airport for international passengers, with more flights to Latin America and the Caribbean than any other, MIA is an intuitive location for our expansion. We look forward to bringing the superior service and convenience for which PS is known to the discerning travellers that fly to and through Miami. We are grateful for the trust placed in us by the Miami-Dade Aviation Department and take seriously our stewardship of this iconic building.”
The new terminal will feature lounges, a salon, private suites and a balcony or landscaped courtyard. At boarding time, members will be brought through on-site TSA screening before being driven to their commercial flights at any of MIA’s concourses, to board the aircraft directly from the tarmac via the jet bridge stairs.
“We look forward to welcoming PS MIA and seeing the transformation of this historic building,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “MIA is a world-class airport, so what better location to offer these wonderful world-class services than Pan Am’s former Miami headquarters, the epicenter of the aviation industry’s golden age.”
