Tampa TPA Airport Terminal Map
Main Terminal / Concourses at Tampa TPA Airport
The passenger terminal complex at Tampa International Airport consists of a one three-level main terminal - the 'Landside Terminal' - surrounded by four satellites - Airsides A, C, E & F - connected by the monorail. The Landside building includes short-term parking at its top level, and the long-term parking garage is across from it. All passengers, whether arriving or departing, will pass through the Transfer Level 3 of the Landside Building; departing passengers proceed to Level 2, while arriving passengers go down to level 1 for baggage claim.
For passenger pickup use the cell phone lot accessible from I-274 & S.R.60, on Bessie Coleman Blvd (adjacent to the US Post Office); or the short-term parking on top level of the landside building.
Getting around at TPA:
1. Surrounding Airside Satellites A, C, E & F are connected by a monorail to the Landside Terminal.
2. Access to the shopping arcade of the Marriott Hotel is on the Transfer Level of the Landside Terminal
3. Note that the baggage claim level is divided into RED, North side - and BLUE, South side. Signs above the escalators & elevators will guide you. There is no direct transfer from RED to BLUE - to cross between them proceed up the elevator /escalator to Level 2, cross lobby and take elevator or stairs down to Level 1.
International arrivals: Airside F is for international flights. Unless you have gone through US customs clearance at participating airports, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag. The monorail connects all airside Concourses A - F. (Gate displays show location of arriving aircraft while being in-flight.) New APC kiosks (automated passport conrol) - presently intended for U.S. & Canadian citizens and passengers of Visa-Waiver countries - is speeding up the process considerably.

The Landside Terminal has just undergone extensive renovation work to accommodate international flights and improve customer service. It houses the Baggage Claim on Level 1, Ticketing on Level 2, and Transfer on Level 3 (with short-term parking on level 4). Levels 2 - 3 are divided into Red areas on the North side, and Blue areas on the South side, depending on your airline (see above), with signs above elevators & escalators guiding you to the proper side.
The Satellites surround the Landside building: Airside C is northeast, Airside A southeast, Airside F southwest & Airside E center-west of the Landside Terminal.
The baggage claim level contains the baggage belts, the ground transportation information desk, rental car counters, courtesy phones for hotels and off-site rental cars, paging phones (for outside paging call 813-870-8770), skycaps & baggage carts. The baggage belts are arranged in 3 sections, each of wich has RED & BLUE airline-assigned baggage baggage belts on opposite sides (however, there is no access between Red & Blue sides - take elevator up to level 2, cross lobby, & take elevator /stairs down one level). The RED belts are numbered 9 - 15; the BLUE belts are numbered 1 - 7. The center section has 4 information counters. Taxi & Bus pickups are on east & west sides, at blue & red.
The Ticketing level houses the airline ticket counters BLUE & RED (Blue are currently for Delta, American, US Airways & United and JetBlue) and courtesy phones for paging, and carts & Skycap service.
The Transfer level offers food & drink & retail concessions (most are at Landside, but some at Airsides offer extended food courts & restaurants not available at Landside), currency exchange & ATM machines, information kiosks, Travelers Aid, chapel, hair salon & shoe shine, as well as access to the Marriott Hotel.
A new 1,100 square-foot USO center is is now open for business. Separate Shuttles take you from this level to A - F gates.
