Amenity projects come to life at Tampa International Airport

Water bottle fillers, nursing rooms, pet relief areas – oh my!


Passengers returning to Tampa International Airport may notice a few highly-anticipated upgrades to the Airport's amenities.

Among the most requested: Water bottle filling stations.

Yes, they're finally here.

TPA has added - or is in the process of adding - water bottle filling stations, mother's nursing rooms and service animal relief areas to each of the airsides. Mother's nursing rooms and service animal relief areas will also be added to the Main Terminal.

The water bottle filling stations offer a touch-less option to easily fill a reusable bottle with cold, filtered H2O post-security, and have been a source of inquiry from the Airport’s audience for quite a while. The amenity comes just in time for the Airport's TPA Ready initiative to provide passengers with a clean and safe traveling experience throughout the Airport.

In total, the Airport will have eight stations – two at each Airside - when the project is complete.

Construction on the nursing rooms and service animal relief areas continues, adding a comfortable, private space for nursing moms while the pet areas give Fido a convenient pre- or post-flight potty break. TPA will eventually install one nursing room per airside and one in the Main Terminal.

Both projects should be completed by late July 2020.
