Tampa International Airport

Tampa International Airport is the second best large hub airport in the United States, according to TripAdvisor’s 2016 Travelers’ Choice Favorites award for U.S. Airports. Surveyed passengers ranked the Airport 4th for best dining.

Presented for the first time this year, the awards highlight the most popular domestic airports in four categories, including shopping, dining, large airports and medium airports. The award winners were determined based on findings from a survey of more than 114,000 TripAdvisor travelers from the U.S.

Tampa International Airport is routinely named among the best airports by passengers for its customer service and convenience. The Airport is recognized for an innovative hub-and-spoke design that results in short walking distances and quick security times.

The Airport will maintain these hallmarks while improving the facility through a nearly $1 billion Master Plan program. The program expands the Main Terminal, adds 65 new shops and restaurants and provides much-needed functional improvements at the Airsides. It will decongest the Airport’s Main Terminal roadways by building a new rental car center to the south of the Airport’s property and connecting it to the Main Terminal by an automated people mover.
