About Tampa International Airport:
When Tampa International Airport's new terminal complex officially opened in 1971, its spoke wheel design landside/airside was the first of its kind. The next year a new control tower, ground level equipment and radar rooms began operation. At the time, the tower was the highest in the nation until Orlando International Airport broke that record in 2002 with a 345-foot tower. In 1973 the airport received its rating as a large-hub airport. Three decades later, and a number of expansions, has seen the airport grow into a world-class facility that has maintained its beauty and functionality.
Tampa International Airport was rated best in the United States by Condé Nast Traveler magazine in 2003, which also rated Tampa International among the top three in the world. In 2010, a J.D. Power airport satisfaction survey ranked TIA as number three behind top ranked Kansas City International and No. 2 Portland International.
