About Tampa Airport

TPA (Tampa International Airport) is a commercial airport located approximately 6 miles west of downtown Tampa. It is the 31st busiest airport in the United States, with little under 17 million people passing through it each year. Airports Council International ranked TPA the best airport in North America in 2019 for its size category, based on airport service quality. Over time, the airport has expanded to handle more traffic, so you'll need a Tampa International Airport map to find your way around.

Tampa Airport provides short-term, long-term, and valet parking at its onsite garages. (Refer to the Tampa Airport Parking map for directions.) Although the onsite airport parking fees are not outrageous, choosing to park at an offsite TPA parking lot can result in significant cost savings.

Did you know that the first scheduled commercial airline flight in the world to use a heavier-than-air airplane took place in Tampa Bay on January 1, 1914? Pioneer aviator Tony Jannus flew the inaugural flight of the St. Petersburg-Tampa Airboat Line from St. Petersburg to Tampa using a Benoist Flying Boat! That's how important Tampa's role is in the country's aviation history.
