Baggage Claim

The Baggage Claim is divided into Red & Blue areas - after arrival, follow signs above escalators & elevators to find your airline-determined baggage carousel.

The baggage claim area provides ground transportation kiosks, public and courtesy phones, baggage carts, on-airport rental car counters, restrooms and skycap service.

Baggage Carts / Skycap

Luggage Carts are available at $5 a fee at the entrances and exits and on the Baggage Claim Level;  however, carts are free at the TSA inspection area.
Carts are also available at short-term garage near elevators at levels 4, 6 & 7.

Tampa Airport Skycap service is available throughout the airport. Tel. (813) 876-1339  or use inside courtesy phones.
Skycaps are available outside the Baggage Claim level and on the Ticketing level.
