How Tampa And Orlando Airports Are Changing To Make Travel More Convenient

This week on Florida Matters we talk about how some of our region’s airports are changing to make travel more convenient.

Projects are underway in Tampa and Orlando to reduce traffic congestion at airports, security screenings are becoming more high-tech, and Tampa even has a new policy that lets people hang out in airside terminals without a boarding pass.
