Tampa International Airport shares update on new airside terminal, expects 35 million passengers by 2037

Tampa International Airport shared an update on its plan to build its first new airside terminal in 20 years, at a public meeting, at the Museum of the American Arts & Crafts Movement, in St. Petersburg.

The meeting was a part of Tampa International Airport’s 2022 Master Plan Update, a process prescribed by the Federal Aviation Administration and the Florida Department of Transportation to analyze TPA’s overall capacity, operational and customer needs, as well as emerging industry trends.

At the meeting, TIA representatives shared a presentation and said that by fiscal year 2037, the airport expects to be serving more than 35 million passengers, annually, thus requiring the additional airside to accommodate increased foot traffic.

The new terminal will span 560,000 square feet, on three levels, and will include 16 additional gates with both domestic and international flights. In addition, it will contain added concessions and an outdoor terrace.

In September 2022, the Authority Board approved $787,384,000 for the Authority’s Airside D Development program, commonly known as Master Plan Phase 3, as part of the $891 million FY2023 Capital Budget.

As the 28th busiest airport in the United States, TIA generates $14.4 billion in economic activity each year and supports more than 121,000 jobs, according to a Florida Department of Transportation Aviation Economic Impact Study from 2019.

Construction on Airside D is planned to break ground in 2024, and completion is projected for 2027.
