MIA Airport Terminals

MIA is a U-shaped airport, with the departure concourses outside and parking inside the “U.” There is a single, sizable terminal structure that is divided into the North, Central, and South terminals; however, moving walkways on Level 3 connect all three terminals. Arrivals, baggage claim, departures, and ticketing are located on Level 1 of each terminal; access to terminal connections and the MIA Mover are located on Level 3.

North Terminal (Concourse D)

50 gates, numbered D1 through D12, D14 through D17, D19 through D34, D37 through D51, D53, D55, and D60, serve both local and international flights on Concourse D.

There are four stops scattered over the one-mile stretch of the concourse that is mostly covered by the Skytrain.

Between the North Terminal and Concourse D, there are four security checkpoints: one little checkpoint close to the Central Terminal and three near the ticketing booths. Passengers can cross a connection bridge to reach the secure area of Concourse E after passing through this checkpoint.

There are plenty of stores and dining options at Concourse D to pass the time.

Central Terminal (Concourse E, F, and G)

Concourses E, F, and G make up the Central Terminal, which is located at the base of the U-shape. Every concourse has its own stores and eateries within the enclosed area, and the Miami International Airport Hotel is located outside of security.

While Concourse G solely handles domestic flights, Concourses E and F handle both local and international flights.

There are eighteen gates in concourse E. The main concourse has gates E2 and E4 to E11, while gates E20 to E25, E30, E31, and E33 are situated in a satellite building that can be reached by train or walkway.

A connecting bridge located across from gate E2 connects Concourse D and Concourse E within the security area.

19 gates, marked F3 through F12, F14 through F21, and F23, make up Concourse F. From the security checkpoint, it takes three to five minutes to walk to all gates.

There are 14 gates in Concourse G, numbered G2, G4 to G12, G14 to G16, and G19. It takes 3 to 5 minutes to walk from the security checkpoint to any of the gates.

All other passengers have to leave the protected area and utilize the Level 3 moving walkways to get to their connecting concourse, with the exception of connections between Concourse E and D.

South Terminal (Concourse H and J)

Direct access to Concourses H and J, which handle both domestic and international aircraft, is available from the South Terminal.

A connected corridor allows passengers to move between these two concourses inside the guarded area. For both concourses, this is also where the majority of the stores and eateries are located.

There are 17 gates in Concourse H, numbered H3 through H12 and H14 through H20. The 15 gates in Concourse J are numbered J2 through J5, J7 through J12, and J14 through J18.

Passengers must leave the secure area and use the Level 3 moving walkways to reach their next concourse in order to connect. Once there, they must go through security checks once more.

Traveling Between Terminals


Along the mile-long Concourse D, the Skytrain runs every three minutes, with four stations along the way where riders can board. Where are the stations located?

  • Near gate D17 — serving gates D1 to D19
  • Near gate D25 — serving gates D20 to D25
  • Near gate D29 — serving gates D26 to D39 and E1 to E35
  • Near gate D46 — serving gates D40 to D60

MIA Mover

Riders can use the MIA Mover to Central Station and the Rental Car Center, which is situated on the third level between the Flamingo and Dolphin garages.


At MIA, travelers may stroll between all of the terminals and concourses. It is not feasible to stay inside the restricted area at all times, though. As long as you’re not arriving on an international aircraft, you can remain airside when connecting between Concourses D and E and between Concourses H and J.

Passengers must go through security at the concourse entrance in order to connect with any other concourse.
