TAMPA, Fla. — Have you ever wanted to just visit the airport to watch the planes take off and land and enjoy the good eats, drinks and shopping throughout the terminals?

Tampa International Airport is now making that concept a reality.

On Tuesday morning, airport officials announced their newest program, "TPA All Access."

The airport has launched all access passes for the public to spend some time enjoying the amenities on the airside (post-security) of the airport. Now, you won't need a flight to come and enjoy everything TIA has to offer, you'll just need an All Access pass. Every pass holder will have to make it through the security checkpoint, and the same requirements for ticketed passengers apply to All Access pass holders.

The TPA All Access passes can be used every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Visitors will have to plan their visits in advance. The airport requests all visitors sign up for an all access pass at least 24 hours before their planned Saturday visit. There is a limit of 25 people per airside and you can only visit one airside during each visit. Visitors that are under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
