A new premium lounge is in the works for Miami International Airport (MIA), set to open in 2025.

At a holiday event at the airline’s arrivals lounge in Heathrow Terminal 5, Sean Doyle, CEO of British Airways, confirmed plans for a new British Airways lounge at MIA, as reported by Head for Points.

While 2025 might seem like a long time away, this lounge will hopefully be worth counting down for.

Let’s take a look at the details we know so far.

Miami’s New British Airways Lounge

According to Doyle, the design of Miami’s British Airways lounge will have a different look and feel than what frequent BA lounge visitors are accustomed to experiencing.

While exact details are yet to be revealed, Rhys Jones of Head for Points spoke with Calum Laming, chief customer officer at British Airways, who described the new space as “an excellent space with windows on 3 sides” — perfect for AvGeeks and plane spotters.

In terms of size, the space measures approximately 13,000 square feet which should be more than enough to welcome British Airways’ premium passengers and elite status holders before returning to London.

Alternatively, eligible British Airways passengers also have access to Miami’s American Airlines Flagship Lounge, which may lead to questioning the need for a dedicated British Airways lounge.

However, in winter months, BA operates 2 daily A380 services between London and Miami, which means a potential total number of passengers of just shy of 1,000.

While only 111 passengers per flight (those flying in first and business class) would definitely have lounge access, many of those flying economy or premium economy may also be eligible for access due to their British Airways Executive Club elite status or Oneworld status. Hence the need for a separate lounge for British Airways passengers.

Hot Tip:

British Airways’ A380s feature the airline’s exclusive first-class cabin. It doesn’t have to break the bank to experience it for yourself, either, thanks to these ways that you upgrade your next British Airways flight.

Final Thoughts

British Airways is making significant investments to enhance the passenger experience for those traveling in premium cabins and elite status holders in Miami. We’ll keep you posted when more details are revealed about the exciting new lounge expected to open its doors at MIA in 2025.
