One day return international flight from TPA ?

Fri Aug 09, 2019 7:38 am

What would be the closest international airport I could travel to from TPA and return
the same day non stop both directions ?


Cayman Islands?

GCM doesn't work. Because it's Cayman Airways operating the flight the flight operates as GCM-TPA-GCM so in order to do a TPA-GCM-TPA round-trip, you would have to overnight at GCM.

Silver (3M) flies TPA-NAS-TPA...but it looks like the turnaround time in NAS is too short.

WN flies TPA-HAV-TPA with a morning arrival in HAV and an afternoon departure back to TPA.

AA/BA connections to LHR for early a.m. arrival, freshen up, take Heathrow Express train to Paddington Station and use Hop On/Hop Off bus tour of London, train from Paddington back to LHR and latest return to US is AA via ORD @315pm arriving TPA about midnight.
Eat and sleep on the planes along with restaurants in Paddington and at Heathrow.
Closer to home but a domestic one is a day trip TPA-DCA, use Metro to visit Air and Space Museum and sightsee bus in DC and fly home that evening.
Food at airports or the Cafe;s in the Smithsonian.

If it doesn't have to be a direct flight, you could do Spirit Tampa - Fort Lauderdale - Cancun in the morning and return Cancun - Fort Lauderdale - Tampa in the late afternoon / evening. This would give you 4 hours and 40 minutes in Cancun.

Day trips to YYZ and YUL ought to be possible through ATL and possibly other hubs with 5-6 hours ground time. I’d probably pick YYZ because the airport transit access is much better, and the downtown is fairly compact (you could probably do both the hockey hall of fame and CN Tower in that time frame, for instance).

May I ask why you want to do this,

If I were going on a day trip I would drive or fly domestically
