With new routes announced on consecutive days, Team TPA has already begun promoting the new routes in support of its airline partners

Alaska will fly TPA-SAN starting in October, while Frontier will launch the first-ever service between TPA and BQN on 4 May.

Two popular destinations for Tampa International Airport travelers will become much easier to reach, thanks to a pair of new nonstop routes announced by airline partners the week of 30 January.

Alaska Airlines will begin daily nonstop service this fall between TPA and San Diego (SAN), while Frontier Airlines is helping expand routes between Tampa to Puerto Rico, with nonstop flights to Aguadilla (BQN) starting 4 May with 3x weekly service. 

San Diego is currently TPA's largest unserved nonstop market in terms of demand, with a daily average of 154 passengers daily each way. 

Alaska will now serve five West Coast cities from TPA, adding San Diego to existing nonstop routes to Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Alaska's new service, which begins Oct. 5, offers a morning departure from SAN and a late afternoon departure from TPA, making the route extra business traveler-friendly. 

“Tampa International Airport is proud to work with our airline partners to best serve travelers headed to our most popular destinations. Hundreds of passengers each day fly between TPA and San Diego, so this new nonstop route by Alaska Airlines offers a welcome daily option without requiring a connection,” Tampa International Airport CEO Joe Lopano said. 

 “At the same time, Frontier’s new nonstop service to Aguadilla will help serve both Puerto Rico and the Tampa Bay Region’s extensive community with ties to the island, which also sees hundreds of passengers traveling in each direction every day.”

Frontier’s flights to Aguadilla will be TPA's first scheduled nonstop service between Tampa and the town on Puerto Rico's west coast. 

The new route is in addition to the airline’s existing daily nonstop service between TPA and San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU). With the new service, Frontier will serve a total of 19 nonstop destinations from TPA.
