Miami is the central metropolitan city of the state of Florida, and is the most populous urban area in the state. While it's not the capital of Florida, the city is at the center of the state's financial, commercial, and entertainment industries. Miami is also the richest city in the US when it comes to its citizen's purchasing power. In addition, it is the cleanest city in the country, according to Forbes magazine. T
he city has the largest Cuban-American population in the US, and is ranked second in terms of the number of its Spanish-speaking citizens after El Paso, Texas. Miami's popularity as a tourist spot is heavily influenced by its port which sees the most number of passenger ship traffic in the world. Because of this, the city is also known as the Cruise Capital of the World.
Several international airports serve the city, with Miami International Airport seeing the most passenger traffic in the area. The airport sees over 35 million people through its doors every year, and is the largest gateway for American Airlines. It is a major entry way for foreign passengers, second only to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. The Airport has several routes to all major cities in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport also serves in an auxiliary manner, along with Opa-locka Airport and Kendall-Tamiami Airport. Palm Beach International Airport, located a little further up north, is a public airport and services the Palm Beach area.
The airport has three asphalt runways and has its own air traffic controllers, with redundancies at Miami International Airport. Like many other US airports, PBIA served as an Air Force base during the war, although it began as a purely civilian airfield in 1936. The area reverted back to civilian control in 1962. T
he expansion of the nearby Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport slowed down PBIA's growth in the 1990s, but the continuous development of South Florida has helped boost back passenger numbers to steady numbers. Today, the airport serves almost 6 million passengers per year.
