TPA Airport Parking Options

Tampa International Airport

In 2019, Tampa unveiled new shops, bars, spas and restaurants that can be enjoyed by passengers waiting for their flight.

They recently created a new Airside Pass Program called All Access that allows visitors every Saturday to visit an airside terminal of their choice.

The Tampa airport also has information boards on Levels 2 and 3 of the main terminal. These boards help with directions, flights and more.
