2022 Master Plan Update Documents
2016 Master Plan Addendum and Phase 2 Documents

In 2016, the HCAA initiated an update to validate the Phase 2 and 3 project elements to determine if conditions in 2016 matched the original findings of the 2012 AMPU. The intent was to verify forecasts, capacity needs and evaluate alternatives for the following key areas:

  • Roadway/Curbside
  • All Airsides
  • Main Terminal

This new study is referred to as the 2012 Master Plan – 2016 Addendum. The documents serve as the consolidated guiding document representing all studies and validations completed. Not all components of the 2012 AMPU were restudied in this 2016 Addendum. If a project component was not restudied, the 2012 AMPU remains as the recommendation and will be referenced as such.
Section 1 of the 2016 Addendum provides a general overview of the process and updated project component recommendations that are different than the previous 2012 AMPU. Sections 2‐5 provide the detailed analysis and process concepts that were studied during the entire 2016 Addendum.

2012 Master Plan Update and Phase 1 Documents

The 2012 Airport Master Plan Update (AMPU) began as a study designed to maximize the capacity and longevity of the existing Main Terminal facilities, while maintaining the level of service for which Tampa International Airport (TPA) is known. The 2012 AMPU was a holistic study of all Airport facilities. It was developed into a comprehensive 3 phase Capital Improvement Program:

Phase 1 – Decongestion
Phase 2 – Enabling
Phase 3 – Expansion
The Hillsborough County Aviation Authority (HCAA) Board adopted and approved the 2012 AMPU on April 4th, 2013.
