History
After purchasing New York, Rio and Buenos Aires Line, Pan Am transferred most of its services to the Dinner Key Seaplane Base, and left the Pan Am Field to a large extent unused until Eastern Air Lines took up air traffic there in 1934, followed by National Airlines in 1937. From 1945, Miami airport was known as 36th Street Airport because the city of Miami had founded the Port Authority and bought the airport from Pan Am. In 1949, the airport was merged with a neighbouring army airbase and was further expanded in 1951. Until its bankruptcy in 1991, Pan Am and Eastern were the leaseholders of Miami Airport; their hubs there were then taken over by United Airlines and American Airlines. Whilst American Airlines expanded, United terminated its services in the 1990’s. In 2004, Iberia also closed its hub at Miami Airport in order to operate more direct flights from Spain to Central America.
