TAMPA — Southwest Airlines will offer a new nonstop route from Tampa to Miami starting Nov. 15.
According to a press release, the route will offer service three times per day. American Airlines is the only other carrier to offer nonstop flights between Tampa International Airport and Miami International Airport.
Delta Airlines, the release states, is scheduled to offer daily nonstop service between TIA and MIA starting in December. Southwest currently offers daily nonstop service from TIA to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
"We're investing in the Sunshine State with additional flying to South Florida so that our Tampa Bay customers can easily travel to the Miami-Dade area for business and personal travel, just as they currently can to Broward County via our flights to Fort Lauderdale," states Steve Goldberg, Southwest Airlines’ senior vice president of operations and hospitality, in the release. "This time-saving, nonstop service offers more of Southwest's value and hospitality, which we've proudly offered in Tampa Bay since 1996."
