Airport parking change

Posted By on Tue, Jul 18, 2006 at 1:09 PM

Don't know about you, but having just been through the airport shuffle, this release from LR National Airport is good news to us:

Customers will be allowed to park unattended vehicles in metered “pull through” slots directly in front of the terminal and along the baggage claim wing beginning Monday, July 24, 2006.  The slots are now limited to attended vehicles only.

 “We have had a number of customer requests that we consider this change and we have determined that it is something we can and should do,” according to Airport Commission Chairman Gene Fortson.

In order to ensure equal access to the 36 slots, 15-minute maximum parking meters are being installed. “This method will enable Little Rock police officers assigned to the airport to monitor stays without having to resort to other methods such as tire marking,” Fortson said.  The fee will be 25 cents.

If customers need to be away from their vehicles for a longer period than will be allowed in the “pull through” slots, they should park in the deck or one of the surface lots.

A special reduced fee has been in effect for some time in the deck and surface lots which enables customers to park for 30 minutes for only 25 cents.
