Tampa airport to allow non-fliers to try its airside cuisine

Tampa International Airport has added a new program allowing residents access to the airsides from 8am – 8pm on Saturdays with prior authorization. Residents have to sign up at least 24 hours in advance of the Saturday they want to visit at tampaairport.com/tpaallaccess so that their names can be matched against the federal no-fly list.

This will mark the first time since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks changed air travel that people without airplane tickets will be allowed to go unescorted to the airsides at Tampa International. (As it stands, in special situations, such as a non-traveling parent accompanying a traveling child, the airport will issue a gate pass, also called a companion pass.) And officials said Tampa International is the third airport in the country to try this kind of program.
