In-Flight Catering and Travel Tips for Miami, FloridaJanuary 15, 2014 by Stacey Farooqui
Miami, located in southeastern Florida, is an exciting region for culture and aviation. Like most of Florida, Miami is a tourist beacon known for its warm temperatures, clean beaches and Caribbean-inspired cuisine. Air traffic picks up in October, peaks between January and April and begins to trail off during May. This is a very long travel season thanks to the pleasant climate Miami has to offer nearly year-round.
Since Miami is a hub for international travel, especially for South America, it is serviced by several airports. The main airport is Miami International Airport (MIA), which is one of the few airports in the United States capable of handling an Airbus A380. Other airports in the Miami area include the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL), City of Fort Lauderdale Airport (FXE), Opa-Locka Executive (OPF) and Kendall-Tamiami Executive Airport (TMB). Miami is a favorite tropical escape during the winter months of the northern hemisphere, so it is important during this time to work with your preferred in-flight caterer in advance so you can guarantee a top-notch experience for your passengers.
Miami is a great location to enjoy a variety of water activities, play golf, explore nature trails or go camping. Yachting, sailing, surfing and diving are just some of the fun on the water that visitors and residents enjoy year-round. Florida as a whole is a golfer’s paradise and Miami has many golf courses, like the Doral Golf Resort & Spa and the Biltmore Hotel Golf & Spa, available for your enjoyment. If you are looking for something more adventurous outdoors, Miami is only a half hour drive to the Everglades National Park, where you can spend the day alone with nature. Miami is also known for having a variety of large outdoor events, so if you are in town at the right time be sure to check out the Miami International Boat Show, Carnaval & Calle Ocho Festival or Sony Open Tennis, to name a few.
If you are looking to take a break from the heat and want to attend an indoor event, Miami is the place to be. Miami is home to Miami Fashion Week, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim and the Miami International Auto Show. If you’d rather shop than just look, Bal Harbour Shops brings you some of the top luxe names, like Cavalli, Chanel, Brioni and Versace. Culture buffs should visit the Perez Art Museum Miami, Vizcaya Museum & Gardens or the Miami Science Museum.
Foodies will enjoy the annual Food Network South Beach Food & Wine Festival featuring several of the top local chefs. Even if you are not in town for the food festival, Miami has many amazing restaurants to try. Palme d’Or, Naoe and the Palm Restaurant are some of the top-rated places to dine at during your visit. If you are looking for something quick to eat, like an authentic Cuban sandwich, Luis Galindo’s Latin American, Tinta y Café and Las Olas Café are said to have some of the best to be found.
If you are a cabin crew member who is ready to relax by getting pampered or having a good night’s sleep, you will find several choices of where to rest before your next flight. The Biltmore in Coral Gables (home to Palme d’Or and an amazing golf course we mentioned earlier) is also home to spacious accommodations and a luxury spa. Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach is a Forbes Travel Guide 5-Star Award winning resort with the #1 spa in Florida. If you are looking for a chic art-deco environment and vibrant night life, the Delano South Beach is where its at. Additionally, the Hilton Bentley is a favorite spot to stay on the world-renowned Ocean Drive.
Overall, Miami offers up plenty of sun and activities to keep anyone busy during any season. Miami provides the local culture, opportunities to commune with nature and high-end shopping that are all sure to become a unique experience you will remember throughout the rest of your travels.
