A new customs terminal is now open for business at Miami International Airport and it's already getting rave reviews.


The North Terminal, a new customs terminal opened for business at Miami International Airport Tuesday, features a 72-lane federal inspection area capable of serving 2,000 international arriving passengers at a time.

The terminal, located in American Airlines' newest wing, promises to save passengers at least 30 minutes during the arrival process.

It also features a spacious new second-level baggage claim area with five baggage claim carrousels.

Passengers who have already gone through North Terminal, say it only took them 10 minutes to pick up their luggage.

Five additional baggage carousels and a new eight-lane re-check inspection for passengers connecting between international flights is scheduled to open in early 2013.
