On Thursday (April 4, 2024), Miami International Airport (MIA) announced that in celebration of LEVEL’s inaugural service between Barcelona and Miami, Miami-Dade County and LEVEL officials hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 3rd.  Miami is now LEVEL’s fifth U.S. destination and their only Florida route.  The special occasion was also celebrated with ‘flying colors’, when officials unveiled ‘Crossroads’, a large scale painting by Miami Graffiti Artist, Quake.


Speaking at Wednesday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony, Miami-Dade County mayor, Daniella Levine Cava, said,


“I am delighted that LEVEL has chosen Miami-Dade County as its newest destination for service to Barcelona. As two coastal communities rich with diverse arts, culture, and history, Barcelona and Miami have many similarities and connections. I am so pleased to see that our residents now have another convenient way to travel between our two popular destinations.”


LEVEL’s Chief Digital and Operations Officer, Ricard Falomir, added,


“We are very excited with the inauguration of this new service, which not only opens a direct connection between Miami and Barcelona with great tourist interest, but also enables endless investment and business opportunities.  We are the airline from Barcelona that will provide a direct flight from Miami to Barcelona, being that both cities are important intercontinental hubs. The service is already a success, so we are happy to announce that it will be operated throughout the year, as a commitment to Miami.  In LEVEL’s representation, I also want to thank all the organizations that have been involved in the launch and the promotion of the service, especially the teams at Miami International Airport and the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau.”
