PDX Offers Spring Break Break Including Discount Parking

PORTLAND, ORE. (March 15, 2011) – Portland International Airport is giving Spring Break travelers an additional break this year with parking discounts in the long-term parking garage.

With the Spring Break Break, parking is $14 per day for those entering the garage between March 17 and April 3—a $2 discount per day. The change will introduce many travelers to the garage that opened last year, and help fully utilize parking spaces in the garage that are more available during Spring Break when there is less business travel. The garage is conveniently connected to the terminal building via tunnels and moving sidewalks.

Motorists are also encouraged to use the short-term parking garage ($3 per hour) to avoid congestion on the terminal roadways when picking up guests. Parking along Northeast Airport Way is prohibited, except for emergencies, and parking curbside at the airport terminal is only allowed for immediate loading and unloading. Motorists can also park in the free cell phone waiting area, wait for a call announcing an arrival, and then quickly pull up to the terminal to pick up travelers. Signs on Airport Way and 82nd Avenue approaching the airport will guide motorists to the lot located on Air Cargo Road, just west of 82nd Avenue.

Expect Busy Airport Conditions

PDX expects about 4 percent more travelers this Spring Break than last year, and travelers should expect busy conditions. During the busiest forecasted Spring Break travel days, March 18, 21, 24 and 25; PDX will serve approximately 40,000 travelers each day, up from the normal daily average of 35,000 for this time of year.

Plan Ahead for Smooth Travel

As always, travelers can make their trips smoother by reviewing general travel tips and flight schedule information before leaving home. Tips and information are available at www.pdx.com and 877-PDX-INFO.

Many stores and restaurants are participating with promotions on food and merchandise.
