A series about the inner workings of Miami International Airport (MIA) is to debut on Travel Channel on October 2.
Produced by 2C Media for the U.S. cable network, Airport 24/7: Miami (6 x 30-minutes, pictured above) follows nine airport staffers working in operations, customer service, maintenance, security and communications at the airport, which is one of the largest in the United States, with 40 million passengers passing through annually.
“Airports are a big part of traveling, and this show is a way to give our viewers an exclusive and rare glimpse into this amazing and dynamic world,” said Travel Channel general manager Andy Singer in a statement. “While most of us are just passing through something is always going on – fuel fires, smuggling rings, medical emergencies, sting operations and aircraft malfunctions.”
Executive producers on the series are Chris Sloan, Carla Kaufman Sloan and Shari Solomon Cedar for 2C Media, and Bill Howard is executive producer for Travel Channel.
