Tampa International Airport
5503 West Spruce Street
If you've ever flown to the Tampa area to catch the NFL's Buccaneers or Major League Baseball's Rays, then you've probably been through an airport managed by the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority. The agency operates Tampa International Airport, which handles more than 18 million passengers annually, plus three general aviation airports. Three of the agency's five board members are appointed by the governor of Florida; other board members include the mayor of the City of Tampa and a member of the Hillsborough County Board of Commissioners. The Hillsborough County Aviation Authority was established by the Florida Legislature in 1945.
