How crazy will airline travel be this holiday season? If the cancellations we saw over Halloween weekend are any indication, we may be in for a rocky ride. But there are some things that can make it better…like booking your flight out of Tampa International Airport, the BEST airport going. And the good news is they’ve recently done something at TPA to make things a little easier for folks traveling without checked bags.

On November 16th (and beyond), you can check out the new Blue Express Curbsides. They are lanes just for passengers who don’t have checked bags. This is a new airport industry concept.

Here’s what Tampa International Airport executive Joe Lopano had to say. “Passenger needs and expectations are changing. Our Blue Express Curbsides will better serve our guests and enhance an already smooth experience. On top of that, we’ll also be making our Main Terminal more efficient, decongesting busy areas and helping us prolong the life of our facilities.”

If you happen to be traveling out of Airside F (my personal favorite), you can hear all about how to make the most of your departure. Plenty to do and see in Airside F, from Cafe Mise En Place to a great massage. Enjoy the journey as much as you do the destination!
