Edelweiss, May You Bloom and Grow
So we have been told for quite some time that the Tampa Bay area just does not have demand to attract international flights, thus justifying complacency. Well, our new Airport Director put nose to the grindstone and, voilà, Tampa is getting nonstop service to Zurich (and also here) on Edelweiss Air, starting in May 2012. We congratulate his team and the Tampa Bay area. We hope this service prove successful and that this is the first of many successes.
This is the kind of positive, aggressive, can do leadership that this area needs. Now about the Panama Canal . . .
