Last year Chris Sloan, television producer, aviation geek, founder of archive.com and 2C Media, brought viewers of the Travel Channel into the world of Miami International Airport (MIA) with season one of Airport 24/7 Miami. While Airport 24/7 Miami is billed as a reality show the reality is that it is more a documentary look into the world of what goes on within the complex environment of a major international airport. Miami International Airport is the 12th busiest airport in the United States by passenger traffic and the fourth busiest in terms of cargo traffic, with more airlines operating out of it than any other airport in the U.S., making it an incredible setting for an all access look at the life of an airport and everything that occurs in front of passengers and hidden from passengers.
This past Friday I had the pleasure of viewing a special premier of the show at Miami International Airport, with Chris Sloan, his crew, and the “cast” with the unusual twist of watching the show in the very place it is filmed (including the occasional interruptions from overhead paging), in the terminal at MIA. I do not want to give to anything away, but all I can say is this … if you liked Season One of Airport 24/7 Miami just a little … you’ll love Season Two!
The Travel Channel brings back Airport 24/7 Miami Season Two tonight, starting at 9:00pm EST / 8:00pm CST, with back-to-back episodes. These episodes are a roller coaster ride of vehicular homicides, ill patients, aircraft collisions and … beagles. The best part, there are twice as many episodes in Season Two than in Season One.
Below is am Instagram photo of Chris Sloan introducing Season Two of Airport 24/7 Miami at the premier event in Miami and a photo of airline journalist Jason Rabinowitz, who writes for NYC Aviation, APEX and Airport Reporter playing with one of the stars of the show, “Speedy.”
