I need to be dropped off at terminal A for a United flight and my sister arrives at the same time at terminal c. Where is a good spot for my mom to wait to meet my sister- she isn't comfortable drivibg around the airport.
Tampa only has one terminal with two landside curbfronts (Blue and Red). Airside A and C have nothing to do with the landside check in/baggage claim areas. Tampa has a large cell-phone lot along the entrance road on the way to the Terminal.
Departing Tampa and wish to spend last evening close to airport
There are a number of hotels near the airport, most of which are good and have shuttles.
I am flying in from Arizona and have 2 hours to catch my flight to Washington, DC. Do I have enough time to make my flight?
The central Landside Terminal at Tampa International Airport consists of the following levels: Level 1 is the baggage claim level, Level 2 is the ticketing level, and level 3 is the transfer level. All three levels are divided into RED on the north side and BLUE on the South side. The Landside Terminal is surrounded by four Airside satellites A, C, E & F, with a total of 62 gates; an automated people mover transports passengers to/from each of these satellites to/from the Landside Terminal.
Attached to the TPA passenger terminal is the Marriott Hotel (the shopping arcade connects the Marriott to the landside terminal on the transfer level), which offers first-rate amenities and a business center.
At Tampa International, you can get food & drink, as well as a newsstand & snackbar at Airside (post-security) areas of the terminal and at its Concourses A, C, E & F you have food court choices and a full-service restaurant.
