Not flying but want to see off your loved ones at the airport post-security? Tampa International Airport in Florida has you covered.
The airport’s All Access program, announced Tuesday, lets as many as 100 people each Saturday check out an airport terminal of their choosing. It’s standard practice that only ticketed passengers can go past security, but now friends and family will be able to spend extra time with their loved ones before takeoff or see them right when the arrive.
Interested travelers can visit www.TPAallaccess.com to sign up for the program, which begins Saturday, May 4. The airport picked Saturdays because it’s the least busy day at its TSA checkpoints. If this program goes smoothly, it’s possible the airport will expand it.
Those who sign up still have to go through the same security screening as ticketed passengers. They can pick a date and terminal at least 24 hours before the day they want to visit the airport, and pick up gate passes that day between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Each terminal has a limit of 25 guest on a given day.
