The nonstop travel list from Tampa International Airport continues to grow. After adding premier destinations such as Frankfurt, Reykjavik, Havana and Panama, TPA looks to continue their momentum with the addition of St. John’s, a harbor city and capital of Newfoundland and Labrador province known for its colorful jellybean row houses and walking trails. The flights will be available through May 26 and can be booked on WestJet’s website.
Opportunity to hike through historic harbor city
St. John’s is the oldest and most easterly city in North America. A top hiking spot amongst visitors is Signal Hill. The journey through the famous Battery leads to Cabot Tower, which served as a military guard post throughout the 1700s and 1800s. Atop the tower, visitors can enjoy a breathtaking view of the harbor city and its skyline.
Perched on top of the horizon is The Rooms. This art gallery and museum is situated next to the iconic twin clocktowers of the the Basilica of St. John’s.
Nonstop flights to Punta Cana and Cancun coming soon
This isn’t the only seasonal service. Beginning May 5, and running every Friday through June 9, Swift Air will provide service between Punta Cana and TPA. Sitting at the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana is famous for its nearly 20 mile stretch of beaches and clear water. The area is popular for zip-lining tours, windsurfing and sailing adventures.
