The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has recognized St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport (PIE) as the 2022 Airport of the Year in the small to medium sized airports category. This recognition is part of the annual TSA Honorary Awards. To win this award, PIE had to compete with 333 airports of similar size.

St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport’s TSA team is crushing it! They were honored for their top-notch teamwork, delivering exceptional performance, and keeping passenger wait times low even with record-breaking numbers. These unsung heroes are all about safeguarding our transportation systems and ensuring smooth travels for people and businesses alike. Kudos to the TSA for their commitment to protecting our freedom of movement.
