Tampa International Airport (TPA) is commencing work to transform the arrival and departure lanes on the Red Side of its Main Terminal to provide additional retail space and a new Airside D shuttle station.

As part of the project, crews have constructed temporary walls to block off portions of the walkways. These are scheduled to remain in use until at least 2025, with the blocked off areas changing so the expansion can take place in phases.

Crews assemble the barrier wall in the walkway to the Airport Marriott on 12 Jan

Upon completion, the north side of the walkway will be home to a new Airside D Shuttle Station, which will include two tracks for automated people movers to take passengers to the airport’s future airside terminal.

Senior Manager of Construction Dan Seeley said:

While the Airport began updating the Red Side of the Main Terminal last year, the biggest and best changes will be happening behind the scenes for now. There are a lot of steps involved in this expansion, but most of our travellers likely won’t even notice the work being done until the improvements are ready for prime time.

The Red Express Curbsides and Main Terminal expansion projects are expected to be finished in Summer 2025. The new Airside D terminal is then scheduled to open in early 2028.
