St. Pete Clearwater International Airport (IATA: PIE, ICAO: KPIE, FAA LID: PIE) is a public/military airport in Pinellas County, Florida serving the Tampa Bay Area. It is right on the northeast municipal boundary of Pinellas Park, 9 miles (14 km) north of downtown St. Petersburg, 7 miles (11 km) southeast of Clearwater, and 17 miles (27 km) southwest of Tampa. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2017 2021 categorized it as a small-hub primary commercial service facility. In 2014, it showed double-digit growth and handled more than one million passengers, setting a record. Most scheduled airline traffic in the Tampa Bay Area uses Tampa International Airport (TPA), 10 miles (16 km) east, but St. Pete Clearwater remains a destination for low-cost carriers. St. Pete Clearwater is a focus city for Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air. PIE is also less busy than Tampa, and is frequently used by pilots of private planes and executive jets. The airport uses ‘Tampa Bay The Easy Way’ as an advertising slogan and ‘Fly2PIE’ in reference to its three-letter IATA and FAA codes.
