Asheville gets direct flight to Tampa

AirTran Airways has just announced it will offer four, non-stop flights a week between Asheville, North Carolina and Tampa, Florida over the summer. Direct flights between Asheville Regional Airport and Tampa International Airport begin May 5th and will end Labor Day, in early September. They may extend the time period longer, if passenger demand warrents.

The typical roundtrip fare for several dates in May and June will be $139 including taxes and fees on AirTran's website, although roundtrips on a few dates will be as low as $119! The service will be provided on 117-seat passenger jets.

This is great news for me and Dina, being from the Tampa Bay area originally. Now our families can come for a visit at a more reasonable cost and save hours in travel time! It also makes for a much more affordable vacation for anyone in the Tampa Bay vacinity considering a Smoky Mountain destination. Asheville Regional Airport is a short 30-minute drive to Brookside Mountain Mist Inn Bed & Breakfast, centrally located in western North Carolina and in the heart of the Smoky Mountains. See our 12-page travel guide on our website for ideas on "things to do" during your Smoky Mountain adventure. Let us be your "Luxury Smoky Mountain Escape"!
