The Miami International Airport continued to tear down their 20 year old baggage system this week. The demolition of the 100,000 square foot facility will make way for the completion of the remaining three gates in the D terminal, gates 26, 27, and 28. Here is a picture of the demolition this week taken from the D terminal.
The new baggage system has been in place since March and is much more sophisticated than the legacy tug car method of delivering bags to planes. The official news release states the new system is capable of scanning and delivering up to 6,400 bags per hour from the North Terminal to the facility’s 50 airplane gates.
