TIA Continues to Move Forward

June 20, 2011

Tampasphere has been working on a number of item.  While we work on that, we think it very important to point out that the present Director of Tampa International Airport is really pursuing a strategy we like.  The latest item is that Tampa International now has an incentive program.

Tampasphere appreciates a number of aspects of this policy.  First, as this article notes, some kind of incentive program is quite standard these days for attracting new flights – to be competitive, TIA needs one.  Second, Tampasphere likes that there is no Pollyannaish talk about attracting flights.  It appears to be a realistic, targeted approach that acknowledges that it will take significant work and some time – but not just not trying because it will be hard.  Third, there is finally a clear policy, rather than the odd policy previously discussed.

Finally, with all the good things going on with the new leadership, we hope more people will join Pinellas County tourism officials  in helping build momentum behind the airport’s new direction.  It can do nothing but help the entire region.
