MORE AVAILABLE SEATS ON THE WAY FLL anticipates a 7.7% increase in available seats during the first quarter of 2011 over the same period last year. This positions FLL as the number one airport in Florida for growth and fourth in the U.S. Only Reagan National, Charlotte, and La Guardia Airports ranked higher in growth in the U.S (according to published airline schedules).


Beginning in November 2010, FLL will offer new or increased nonstop service to 46 domestic and international destinations for the winter of 2010-11. Travelers will find more flights and/or additional seats on more days to these destinations. By January 2011, when the airlines fully implement the increased schedule, there will be an additional 6,200 roundtrip seats per day.


Airlines at FLL fly nonstop to more U.S. cities than any other airport in South Florida. Travelers will find FLL offers some of the lowest fares in South Florida with over 300 daily departures to more than 100 destinations in the U.S., Latin America, Canada, and the Caribbean.

The gallery is located in Terminal 2, Departure Level. Saccoccio’s paintings include nine artworks with acrylic on canvas. Saccoccio says, “It’s not my intention to copy nature or to represent landscapes, but through color and form, my intent is to express the emotion inspired by nature.”


The Lee Wagener Art Gallery offers Broward County artists an opportunity to exhibit their work. The Broward County Cultural Division’s Public Art & Design Program selects artists for the gallery. The far end of the gallery contains an exhibition of video artworks from Broward County’s permanent art collection.  For additional information: Please contact Christina Roldan, Public Art & Design Project Manager at croldan@broward.org or visit Public Art’s website.

GOING UP, WELL ALMOSTTravelers walking between terminals on the upper Departure level won’t have to worry about the sun or rain soon. Crews began installing canopies between Terminals 3 and 4 in late October to replace the original canopies that were destroyed during Hurricane Wilma.  The photo above shows the first phase of installation. The next phase will involve securing the fabric tightly to the steel structure. The project involves replacing all the canopy fabric and minor structural elements. The canopies between Terminals 2 and 3 are scheduled to be installed before the end of the year.  For more information about the project, please contact our Airport Development Division at 954-359-6149.
