Kendall-Tamiami Opens Newly Extended Runway


top story photo Kendall-Tamiami Executive Airport (Fla.) last week marked the opening of its newly extended runway, which adds 1,000-feet to the airport's primary 5,000-foot south runway.

The runway extension will allow most new-generation corporate and private jet aircraft to carry increased fuel and/or cargo and fly to destinations in Central and South America and the Caribbean without intermediate refueling stops, according to an announcement. The extension project cost $4.43 million.

Kendall-Tamiami serves as a reliever airport for Miami International.
