Tampa International Airport reports modest gains in revenue, passengers

TAMPA — Tampa International Airport enjoyed modest growth in revenue and passenger numbers in fiscal year 2013, which ended Sept. 30.

According to the airport, it generated $184.3 million in revenue, which was a 4 percent increase — or $6.7 million more — than the airport made in fiscal year 2012.

The airport also saw an 8 percent increase in revenue from the food, beverage and retail sectors, which brought in $1.3 million in fiscal year 2013. The airport's fastest growing sector, however, was valet parking. That parking option, which also offers auto detailing, brought in $1.3 million in fiscal year 2013, which was 11 percent more than the previous year.

The airport's passenger numbers hit 16.9 million in fiscal year 2013, which was a slight 0.9 percent increase from the previous year. Tampa International said that modest growth was due to a 7 percent rise in the number of international passengers.

In recent years Tampa International has added international flights to Cuba, Switzerland and, most recently, Panama. Starting Dec. 16, Panamanian carrier Copa Airlines will fly Tampa to Panama City four times a week.

"I'm proud to see the growth in international passenger traffic, and I expect that trend to continue with the launch of our four-times-weekly Copa flights to Panama in December," said Tampa International Chief Executive Officer Joe Lopano in a prepared statement.

  3. Hackers hide cyberattacks in social media posts


    SAN FRANCISCO — It took only one attempt for Russian hackers to make their way into the computer of a Pentagon official. But the attack didn't come through an email or a file buried within a seemingly innocuous document.

While last year's hacking of senior Democratic Party officials raised awareness of the damage caused if just a handful of employees click on the wrong emails, few people realize that a message on Twitter or Facebook could give an attacker similar access to their system.
