As a precautionary measure due to uncertainties created by the lapse in federal government funding, some passengers at Miami International Airport may experience changes to their security checkpoint and departure gate this weekend.

MIA does not anticipate any significant impacts to flight schedules or the passenger experience from any gate changes.

Below are some tips to make traveling through MIA easier:

Departing passengers should arrive at the airport two hours before a domestic flight and three hours before an international flight to allow sufficient time for parking, airline check-in and screening at the security checkpoint.

Passengers are encouraged to check-in online before arriving at MIA.

Passengers can use the new MIA Airport Official mobile app, available for free at the iPhone and Google Play app stores, to: scan their boarding pass and immediately receive turn-by-turn, blue-dot navigation with estimated walk times; real-time flight updates and airport advisories; and shopping and dining suggestions nearby, based on their customizable personal profile.

The MIA Airport Official mobile app also provides the Mobile Passport Control feature, which allows U.S. citizens with a valid U.S. passport and Canadian citizens with a valid Canadian passport and B1 or B2 visa status to have their passport information processed by using their smartphone or tablet – and avoid the traditional checkpoint lanes - when arriving at MIA from abroad.

Flights that were previously scheduled to depart from Concourse G after 1 p.m. this Saturday, Sunday and Monday will be relocated either to Concourse F or Concourse H.
