My first time going to TPA was terrifying. I did not know what to expect and we got there early so that I could figure it all out. The airport is very small, but because it is small it was easy to find everything I needed.
I had recently finished college and was working for a major company that required me to travel quite frequently. I was excited about the opportunity, but also nervous about the actual traveling part of it.
We arrived at the airport a few hours before my flight, as per usual, but this time we were actually getting on a plane, not just dropping someone off or picking them up.
My first experience at Tampa International Airport was pretty good. We got in early to check in, which gave me some time to look around and get familiar with the place.
I have flown into many airports over the years and found that they are all pretty similar; however, TPA stands out as being especially efficient and clean. The security lines are short, the food options are good (especially compared to ATL where there is only one restaurant), and they have free wifi which makes waiting much less painful.”
TPA airport is a great airport to fly into and out of. It’s easy to get around, and the staff is helpful.
Tampa Airport is a medium sized airport in the Tampa Bay area. The airport is large enough for travelers to experience a fast check-in, security, and boarding process. Tampa International Airport also has many restaurants and stores for travelers to enjoy while waiting for their flights.
One of the best features at TPA is the Airside. All of the gates are connected via a moving walkway which makes it easy to get to your gate on time even if you have to walk across the whole airside. The airsides at TPA have many glass windows which allow passengers to see planes taking off and landing while they wait for their flight to depart. There are also many airline lounges which offer passengers a quiet place to relax before their flight.
I highly recommend flying out of Tampa International Airport.
Overall, we had a good experience at Tampa International Airport. We found the airport and its services to be clean and efficient. The facilities were well-maintained and comfortable. However, we do have some constructive criticism.
We arrived at the airport two hours before our flight and breezed through checkin in about ten minutes. The airport has a number of restaurants and shops for travelers to browse, but it would be nice if there was a place to relax or read between gates.
Our flight departed on time and arrived early! We are very happy with the airline’s service and will definitely fly with them again.
My family and I just returned from a week long stay in Tampa, Florida. We flew into Tampa International Airport (TPA) on Sunday morning and began our vacation. We travelled with 4 adults and 2 children (ages 2 and 4). The only delay we experienced in our flight to TPA was the typical wait for everyone to deplane. Once we were off the plane we headed through baggage claim and then outside where we waited for our shuttle to pick us up. The shuttle ride was great, it was about a 15-20 minute drive to our villas. It was very convenient having a shuttle service because even though there were plenty of cabs outside the airport, it would have cost us a lot more money to take a cab than it would have to take the shuttle that took us right to our door step.
When we arrived back at TPA on Sunday afternoon, there were no delays at all when we got off the plane. We had already checked our luggage so all we needed to do was go through security check points and then wait at our gate for our plane. All in all, I thought TPA worked out great for my family, it was convenient, easy, and fast!
The Tampa Airport is nice. It’s clean, there are a lot of places to eat and shop, which is a plus for those who like to shop and eat. The airport has many flights that go to many places. There are also many airlines that fly into the Tampa airport, which gives you more options to choose from.
The airport also has plenty of parking. There is long term parking and short term parking. The long term parking is in a parking garage, which makes it safe and secure, with plenty of space.
We left our house at 7am and arrived at the Tampa Airport at 8:10. It took us a few minutes to find parking, but we found a spot in the Parking Garage A for $15 per day. The only downside is that you have to walk quite a ways from the garage to check-in.
After being dropped off by my husband, I was very impressed with the curb side check-in. I was greeted by an employee and my bags were tagged, weighed and sent on their way within 2 minutes. There was no line at all!
The check-in area was very nicely arranged. There are plenty of kiosks and airline attendants to help you get your boarding pass or make sure your baggage is checked correctly. The agent who helped me said that they had added 2 new kiosks since last time she worked there, which made it even easier for passengers to find an available machine to use. She also mentioned that she had been working here for over 10 years and that it is one of the best airports she has ever worked in because it is so nice and easy for both passengers and employees.
I did not encounter any long lines at all during my time in the airport today. That’s great! Because I hate waiting in long lines!
