Fitch Ratings and Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services (S&P) each assigned “A” ratings and stable rating outlooks, while Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigned a “AA-” rating and stable outlook.

 

“Once again, Miami International Airport’s financial strength has been confirmed by three highly respected organizations,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A.

Standard & Poor’s noted that “from 2007 to 2014, [MIA] reported the third-largest percentage increase in passengers among the 30 largest U.S. airports.” During that time period, “international enplaned passengers increased 31.5%, outpacing the national average of 16.9%.” KBRA cited MIA’s “very capable management team,” which has “effectively integrated County policies and procedures that support well-maintained operations.” Fitch Ratings added that “Miami’s leading role for international operations is not only relevant for passenger operations but for air cargo as well.”
