How to find your way around Tampa Airport

Flugzeug über Tampa

Plane over Tampa

Tampa Airport has an unusual structure and architecture. It has no shared buildings like most airports. Instead, there is a central resident terminal (Landside) and four satellite terminals (Airside) designated A, C, E and F in which the gates are located and over which one enters the plane. The connection is made by a driverless train with small gondolas. The system of colour coding should also be unique. Since its opening on 15 April 1971, Tampa International Airport has used a special colour coding system throughout the terminal area. The baggage reclaim and ticket counters are marked in blue and red. The colour codes were also given names based on aerospace pioneers to support colour-blind people.
