There’s no shortage of good coffee in Tampa Bay, but if you feel like jetting to one of the more known coffee bean capitals of the U.S. you can now do that courtesy of TPA. That’s of course courtesy of new non-stop daily flights between Seattle and Tampa beginning in March 2020.
The travel behemoth can do no wrong in our eyes. They kill it on social media (make sure to follow TPA on Twitter for some fire aviation content) and even made their own special cocktail for guests to sip on.
“We’re excited to launch this easy, nonstop connection to welcome our friends from Seattle, and likewise, we expect it to be a popular route among our Tampa Bay residents looking to visit the Emerald City for vacation or business,” Tampa International Airport CEO Joe Lopano said.
“Delta has been a wonderful airline partner for many years and delivers the same kind of excellent customer service we value highly at TPA.”
The flight will operate on a Boeing 737-800 aircraft, featuring First Class, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin seating, as well as free entertainment on seatback screens or personal device through Delta Studio, Wi-Fi and power accessible from every seat.
Once launched, flights will depart TPA at 4:45pm (EST) and arrive in Seattle at 8:15pm (PST).
Delta is TPA’s second airline to offer nonstop service to the Pacific Northwest after Alaska Airlines launched daily nonstop TPA-SEA flights in 2014.
That’s not the only TPA news. The airport has opened its shops and concessions to non-passengers during weekends. We also have 8 facts you probably didn’t know about TPA.
Sticking with other Tampa businesses, the airport has also enacted new rules on plastic straws.
