According to a new review, Tampa International Airport is the third best airport in the country for stress-free travel.

Time Money analyzed 31 of the nation's largest airports to find the ones that offered the best, most drama-free destinations and layovers. They used factors like customer experience data from J.D. Power, on-time arrival rates, ease of baggage pickup and security lines, and traveler amenities like shops and restaurants.

Tampa International's review is below:

Florida’s Tampa airport ranked highest for the ease of its security process in J.D. Power’s 2016 survey. That’s a particular achievement, considering that J.D. Power reported an 8% increase in the wait time travelers spent in security lines over the past year. Tampa owes its speed to a decentralized design with multiple security checkpoints. That gives travelers more time to explore the 45 shops and 34 restaurants, a dozen of which opened in the second half of 2016 alone. Southwest, a top MONEY airline, is Tampa’s largest carrier, serving about 35% of the airport’s passengers.
