Tampa International Airport's Phase 2 proposal includes a curbside expansion with new express lanes for passengers without checked baggage and 17-acre commercial development around the rental car center. The development area includes a new office building, convenience store with gas station, hotel as well as a commercial curb to accommodate transit and other ground transportation. Phase II also includes new connections to regional trail networks. A new Airside D with 16 gates capable of handling both domestic and international flights, and international passenger processing facilities remain part of Phase 3, which is scheduled to begin sometime after 2020. Together, the three phases of the Master Plan will allow the airport to serve 34 million passengers each year – nearly double the number we serve today – in our existing footprint. Pending approval by the Airport Board, site preparation on the commercial development is slated to begin in mid-2018. Curbside construction is scheduled to begin in late 2019 and end in 2023.
