Tampa International Airport Tour

 

OLLI members at Tampa Airport, May 2023

Tuesday May 23, 10:00 a.m. - we loved it!

A free, guided tour of “one of America’s favorite airports.” See where your suitcases go after you give them to the airlines then take a bus tour of the landing areas and the Fire Station (the best in Tampa). All bags will be checked. Park in the long-term parking garage (payment required for parking.) Take the shuttle to the main terminal. We will meet at the German airlines booth in the red area, on the second floor.
