The Tampa Bay Flyout
About the Event:
Welcome to the seventh installment of my “underserved hubs” series. In this series, I’m focusing on smaller airline hubs in IF that don’t get as much attention as they deserve.
Tampa International Airport (IATA: TPA, ICAO: KTPA), is an international airport six miles (9.7 km) west of Downtown Tampa, in Hillsborough County, Florida. The airport is publicly owned by Hillsborough County Aviation Authority (HCAA). It has been praised for its architecture and Landside/Airside design of a central terminal landside connected by trams to four satellite air terminals and gates, a pioneering concept when designed in the late 1960s. The airport was called Drew Field Municipal Airport until 1952.
The airport is served by over twenty major air carrier airlines, four regional airlines, and three air cargo carriers. Three of the regional airlines operate under the banner of mainline air carriers, while a fourth, Silver Airways, is independent and utilizes Tampa International Airport as a hub for its operations. Southwest Airlines carries the airport’s largest share of passengers, operating up to 121 daily flights.
The airport presently serves 93 non-stop destinations throughout North America, Central America, the Caribbean, and Europe. The airport handled 22,497,953 passengers in 2019, making it the 28th-busiest airport by passenger movements in North America.
