MIA is a U-shaped airport with parking situated inside the “U” and the departure concourses on the outside.

Within each terminal, arrivals and baggage claim are on Level 1, departures and ticketing are on Level 2, and access to terminal connections and the MIA Mover is on Level 3.

Concourse D has 50 gates numbered D1 to D12, D14 to D17, D19 to D34, D37 to D51, D53, D55, and D60, serving international and domestic flights.

The Skytrain runs along most of the length of the concourse (which from end-to-end is 1 mile), with 4 stations along the route.

There are 4 security checkpoints between the North Terminal and Concourse D — 3 near the ticketing areas and 1 small checkpoint near the Central Terminal. Once through this checkpoint, passengers can walk to the secure area of Concourse E through a connector bridge.

Concourse D has lots of shops and restaurants to pass the time, as well as an XpressSpa, The Centurion Lounge, and 2 Admirals Club locations.
