Flying into Miami area Fort Lauderdale Reviews
Fort Lauderdale Airport (FLL) - good choice Feb 05, 2009
Usually when you are flying into Miami, you'd arrive to Miami's airport. Recently I realized that I could arrive to Fort Lauderdale instead of Miami.
Yes, I know FLL is not so close to Miami. But it's just 40min drive or you can take the TRI-Rail. Nevermind let's focus on the good part.
Ok, here are the PRO's of doing it so:
1- flights to FLL instead of MIA are cheaper
2- since this aiport is smaller, it's not so crowded and you can check in, clear customs and go through security easily.
3- TRI-Rail station is close, there's a free shuttle that drives you to and from there.
4- Customer service is great, really helpful
Now if I'm going to Miami area, I look for a good deal in FLL. Personally I prefer it than the traditional Miami one.
