DIA (Denver International) Hikes Fees for Off-Airport Parking Vendors

Jan 19, 2011 - by Jeffery Lieb - The Denver Post --Denver International Airport has changed the way it charges off-airport parking operators to bring their shuttle vans to the terminal, a move that at least one company said is likely to lead to increased costs for customers.

On Dec. 10, DIA started charging off-airport lots 8 percent of their gross revenues plus an additional fee if their vans spend more than 15 minutes dropping off and picking up airline passengers at the terminal.
Taking a percentage of gross revenues replaces a separate access fee for private parking vans that DIA had charged operators.

USAirport Parking, which has 8,000 spaces at its lot on Tower Road near East 81st Avenue, paid about $200,000 to DIA last year for the company's vans to gain access to the airport's fifth-level pickup and drop-off areas, said company marketing manager Mark Walker.

Using the new formula, USAirport Parking expects its annual fee could be at least $1 million, Walker said.  Read more at The Denver Post.
