Baggage allowance5

Unlike most airlines, British Airways allows you to take all your holiday essentials in your checked baggage. Their baggage fares include at least one bag per person of up to 23kg. Even if you are traveling light you can still enjoy the great British Airways service without having to check in your bag so when you land you can make a quick getaway to your destination.

Voted Best Airline8

Recently, British Airways won seven of the top awards available at the Business Traveller Awards including Best Airline.  They are continuing their commitment to improving their service to maintain their stellar reputation, starting with employing 200 more customer service staff and continuing to keep their prices low. They are also improving the benefits to Executive Club Members and improving their award winning business class. This is good news to existing customers and should be more than enough to persuade new customers to fly with British Airways.

Convenience 7

Tampa Airport is located only an hours drive from Orlando and right near the Gulf Coast. If you are thinking of landing in Orlando Airport it is much easier and faster to check-in at Tampa and there are hardly ever any delays. The drive to Orlando is certainly a scenic one and the perfect opportunity to see the best of what Florida has to deliver.

Great Facility6

Tampa Airport is ranked 3rd for design and 2nd overall across all of America among domestic airports. Tampa international has also planned to spend nearly $1 billion on upgrading and modernising the whole airport to sustain their level of excellence. The project includes 2.6 million-square-foot consolidated rental car center near the entrance to the airport, a 1.4 mile automated people mover and a massive expansion of the main terminal. Soon everyone will be flying direct to Tampa!
