The flight route from New York (NYC) to Miami (MIA) is and remains busy with passengers eager to soak up Miami's sub-tropical sun rays. To fly the 1300 miles to Miami's sandy shores it will take you around 3 hours. Three airlines, Delta, United and American, service this stretch with a direct flight - providing around 30 of these a day. If you have just arrived on an international flight, a designated shuttle will transport you from the arrivals section of the international terminal to the domestic terminal.
Getting a cheap air ticket will come down to keeping an eye on the various low-cost carriers, as well as taking general precatuions such as being sure to book early and avoiding peak vacation periods and weekends.
Around 11 million visitors visit Miami every year for a variety of reasons, not least of which to enjoy the weather and the strongly Latino influenced vibe (50% of Miami is Spanish speaking). Taking an airport flyer express bus will get you from Miami International Airport straight into the heart of the action (Miami beach and other attractions). The metrobus system is designed to connect with Metrorail and Metromover and serves all major business, shopping, entertainment and cultural centers. And best of all, that trip can cost as little as $2. Don't forget, no trip to Florida would be complete without a trip to the Everglades, one of the most unique environments in the world, so be sure to grab a bus over there and get the whole experience.
