First-of-its-kind luxury commercial travel service continues bicoastal U.S. expansion to MIA, bringing the premium experience to one of America’s busiest airports
PS, the private luxury terminal service for commercial flights, today announced its expansion to Miami International Airport (MIA), where it will open the airport’s first private terminal in 2025. The signature premium experience pairs global sophistication and local culture, with efficiency, safety, privacy, and luxury amenities for the frequent affluent traveler. To avoid the congestion at one of America’s busiest airports, PS MIA will offer members and guests an elevated lounge experience, The Salon, and Private Suites equipped with a private balcony, or the landscaped courtyard for some final moments in Miami’s sunshine. At boarding time, members and guests will be brought through on-site TSA screening before being driven to their commercial flights at any of MIA’s concourses, to board the plane directly from the tarmac via the jet bridge stairs. For those arriving at MIA, the full experience is reversed seamlessly, from tarmac pick-up through airport departure.
“We look forward to welcoming PS MIA and seeing the transformation of this historic building. MIA is a world-class airport, so what better location to offer these wonderful world-class services than Pan Am’s former Miami headquarters, the epicenter of the aviation industry’s golden age. Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava”
Breathing new life into the former Pan American Airways Regional Headquarters, PS’s signature premium experience will celebrate the legacy of its historic new home, demonstrating architectural innovation, creativity, and deference to the building’s past. Helmed by acclaimed architect Richard Heisenbottle, lauded for leading Florida’s preservation efforts, PS MIA will bring together a team of architects, interior designers, and contractors experienced in historic preservation. The team will create an adaptive, effective, modern, and beautiful space that is in accordance with the Miami-Dade County Historic Preservation Ordinance and the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for the Restoration and Rehabilitation of Historic Structures.
As the nation’s busiest airport for international passengers, with more flights to Latin America and the Caribbean than any other, MIA is an intuitive location for our expansion. We look forward to bringing the superior service and convenience for which PS is known to the discerning travelers that fly to and through Miami. We are grateful for the trust placed in us by the Miami-Dade Aviation Department and take seriously our stewardship of this iconic building. Amina Belouizdad Porter, CEO of PS
