Tampa International Airport is the premier gateway to the treasures of Florida’s West Coast. Serving a metropolitan area of almost 3 million people and annually welcoming 21 million passengers, TPA provides access to the best beaches in the U.S., Florida’s ample tourism hotspots and one of the fastest-growing economies in the U.S. TPA currently offers more than 85 nonstop flights to destinations around the world including Frankfurt, Reykjavik, Zurich, Panama City and London.

Globally recognized as one of the world’s best airports, Tampa International Airport has long prided itself for being laser-focused on the passenger experience and making every interaction personal. Travel + Leisure twice named TPA the second best U.S. airport based on reader polls. TPA is the only U.S. airport listed among the world’s ten most-loved airports by CNN Travel and the only North American airport added to the Airports Council International Director General’s Roll of Excellence in 2018.

Building on a longstanding track record of success, TPA recently completed the largest construction and re-imagining project in the history of the airport. With an investment of nearly $1 billion, TPA expanded the airport’s main terminal by 50,000 square feet, constructed a state of the art rental car center and connected them with a brand new 1.4-mile people mover. At the same time, TPA added local flavor and supported Tampa Bay Area businesses in a complete overhaul of the airport’s concessions program.

Since opening in 1971 with a revolutionary and often copied design, TPA has been, and remains, America’s Favorite Airport.
