This flight from TPA will change how you vacation forever, according to Conde Nast


Tampa International Airport is no stranger to love from all sorts of publications. Its customer service is phenomenal. The food and shops in each and every terminal are bursting with local flavor. There’s public art displayed in nearly every corner of the facility before and after security.

Amenities and customer service aside, the roster of nonstop flights to top tier travel destinations is impress — and Conde Nast took notice. In fact, the publication said one specific nonstop flight out of TPA will change how you vacation forever.

Which is it? The recently announced nonstop flight from Tampa to Amsterdam via Delta. The flights officially launch out of TPA May 23 2019.

“The once-daily flight leaves Tampa at 9:25 p.m. and lands in Amsterdam at 12:45 p.m. the next day, which means you can head straight for a lunch of raw herring at Stubbe’s Haring, located about 550 yards from the Centraal train station,” writes Conde Nast Traveler.

The Amsterdam service is expected to have an economic impact on the region of $110 million and create more than 1,000 jobs.

Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is among Europe’s busiest airports and one of Delta’s largest European hubs, connecting passengers to destinations across Europe, the Middle East, India, Africa and Asia via Delta’s partner airlines Air France, KLM, Alitalia and Jet Airways.

Delta will use a 211-seat Boeing 767-300 for the flights, which will operate daily during peak travel periods and four to five times weekly during non-peak periods.

This isn’t the only international addition at TPA. The airport recently tweeted photos of the new Norwegian Airlines kiosks.

The airline will launch two-times weekly nonstop flights to London’s Gatwick Airport beginning in late October.
