Tampa International Airport has won countless awards since it first opened in 1971 from travel staples like Condé Nast and J.D. Power and Associates for everything from design and efficiency to customer service. Now there is a new accolade to add to the list: One of the Most Loved.
CNNgo.com, a CNN website devoted to international travel and tourism, recently rated Tampa International Airport #6 in its rating of the top 10 most loved airports. Unlike other online polls that rate airports on standardized categories, the CNN survey awarded airports based on characteristics like uniqueness and charm. The article recognizes Tampa for its “affable Floridian staff” and “tasteful galleria of shops” among its many favorable traits.
Other airports making the list include international favorites Singapore Changi and Hong Kong International. Tampa International Airport is the only U.S. airport to make the list.
But TIA isn’t the only award winning airport here! Zephyrhills Airport in Pasco County won the Gerneral Aviation Airport of the Year Award in 2000. Zephyrhills Airport has become the place for businessmen and women to travel using chartered, private jets.
What are the Top 8 Reasons to charter a Private Flight?
