Reclaiming an Impounded Vehicle

Vehicles may be impounded from parking facilities if left for more than 45 days. There is a sign posting this information at the entrance of each parking facility and printed on the back of parking tickets.

Vehicles parked on airport property anywhere other than a parking facility are considered abandoned and are impounded immediately.

General Aviation

Tampa International Airport relies on two fixed-base operators on the airport campus and three small airports elsewhere in Hillsborough County to serve the general aviation activities of the community. The three off-campus airports also form a reliever airport network to allow for safe, efficient and timely commercial operations at Tampa International.

USO Welcome Center

The USO Central Florida Welcome Center is a home away from home for the thousands of military members and their families who travel through the Tampa area annually.

The 1,100-square-foot center offers complimentary food and beverages, a television lounge, a book and magazine library, gaming stations, computers with Internet access, children’s activities and rest areas.
