Miami International Airport set another annual record — with a few days left in the year.
The airport hit the 40 million passenger mark on Dec. 27, an increase from last year’s total of 39.5 million. Passenger counts have set records at MIA for four years in a row.
Annual traffic has grown more than 12 percent since 2010, when 35.7 million people traveled through the airport.
According to MIA, half of the passengers were international — and airlines continued adding destinations around the world in 2013. Those included Calgary in Canada; Milan, Italy; Guadeloupe and Martinique in the Caribbean; Cozumel, Mexico; and Brazil’s Curitiba and Porto Alegre.
In the first six months of next year, the airport will add more foreign destinations, with new service to Belem, Brazil; Brussels, Belgium; and Doha, Qatar.
