MIAMI – American Airlines said today it has opened an Admirals
Club® lounge in Concourse E to replace the one in Concourse A which recently
closed to accommodate construction for the North Terminal Project. The club in
Concourse E opened last week and will continue to operate alongside American’s
larger, 30,000 square-foot Admiral’s Club in Concourse D.
“We realize that the closing of the Admirals Club in Concourse A
would have created an overflow of passengers in the Terminal D club,
representing an inconvenience for passengers,” said Patsy Yuen-Lyn, Director –
Premium Services. “By offering an alternative club at Concourse E, we hope to
ease the transition for passengers and alleviate any congestion that would have
been created at the club in Concourse D.”
The Admirals Club in Concourse E will provide ample space and
amenities for passengers allowing them to relax or work in between flights.
This 16,000 square foot facility will comfortably accommodate 275 people. It
offers two conference rooms, six showers, two TV lounges, a children’s room,
four Cyber Café stations, and six work carrels – three with Lenovo personal
“In addition to being one of our largest hubs, Miami is our
premier connecting hub for Latin America and the Caribbean,” said Peter Dolara,
American Airlines Senior Vice President – Miami, Caribbean and Latin America.
“It is extremely important that we continue to operate effectively and smoothly
for our customers.”
When the North Terminal program is complete, American will operate
from a new, state-of-the-art terminal with 48 new international gates, two
American Eagle regional jet gates, an automated people mover system, 49 ticket
counter positions, 90 self-service check-in machines, 30 curbside baggage
check-in positions, and a new international Customs facility.

The Miami hub operates 261 daily flights to 102 destinations
around the world, with more passengers choosing American Airlines as their
carrier of choice for domestic and international travel. American recently
added curbside check-in for its international passengers at Miami, becoming the
only carrier to offer this service. Catering to the independent and
well-seasoned traveler, American has also added 23 new self service check-in
stations and a new security checkpoint at Concourse E to speed the flow of
traffic within the airport.
