Beginning on Sunday, March 22, 2020, at 11:59 p.m., we will suspend all our international and transborder flights.

We will be providing regular updates on all our channels and are reaching out directly to these impacted travellers via email with more specific information.

Florida is home to some of the most diverse and exotic wildlife in the U.S. - there are over 700 species there that exist nowhere else in the world! Keep your eye out for manatees, colourful birds and fish, playful dolphins and sea turtles. If you want to get up close and personal with some of these animals, ZooTampa at Lowry Park has a whole park dedicated to the unique plants and animals of this state.
To get into town from the airport, you can catch a ride in a Lyft or Uber, grab a taxi, or rent a car through one of the many rental car services available at the airport. For a more frugal option, you can book a shuttle through Super Shuttle or hop on public transportation.
For more information, you can check out the Ground Transportation page on the Tampa International Airport website.
Once you’re in the city, there are even more options for getting around! Jump on a HART bus, a TECO Line Streetcar, a water taxi, the Downtowner ride service, or use a taxi or rideshare service. You can also walk or bike on one of the many dedicated pathways.
If you’re hoping to visit some of Tampa's biggest attractions, like Busch Gardens, ZooTampa at Lowry Park or the beautiful Chihuly glass exhibit at the Morean Arts Centre, you can save money by buying the Tampa Bay CityPASS.
Tampa is also full of fun, free events for the whole family! Check out the Florida Botanical Gardens or the Tampa Riverwalk, visit some of Florida’s favourite animal, the manatee, at the Manatee Viewing Centre or take a tour through America’s oldest brewery, Yuengling.
