christmas airport parking discounts
The easiest way to get Christmas Airport Parking Discounts is to make a reservation

Christmas Airport Parking Discounts

At InstaParking, we preach this every chance we get - the easiest way to get airport parking discounts is to park off-airport and make a reservation. Getting Christmas Airport Parking Discounts is not different. Here are a few options:
But wait there is more... here are 2 more tips for Christmas Airport Parking Discounts:
  1. Keep an eye out for articles on holiday tips from your airport particularly if you prefer on-airport parking. Unless the on-airport parking is full, these articles will not necessarily help you with Christmas Airport Parking Discounts, but they will let you know if they are doing any parking deals or if they are offering additional parking services. In the Airport Parking News section below is an example from Denver International Airport, DIA Offers Tips, Fun for Travelers this Holiday Season.
  2. Take advantage of a Park, Sleep, and Fly Hotel Package to get Christmas Airport Parking Discounts. Take some stress out of your trip to the airport and stay in a hotel the night before that includes airport parking.

Airport Pet Boarding in InstaPakring News

airport pet boarding
Keep an Eye Out for Airport Pet Boarding Near You!

Airport Pet Boarding

We love today's lead story. We reported on the landscape of airport pet boarding with airport parking in a post back in September titled "Airport Parking Pet Boarding". We pointed out how convenient services like this are and how this is an emerging service near many airports across the country. Because it is emerging, you will find many different marketing and pricing models as managers try to find a business model that works in their community.
From the outside, the model for the partnership between Park'N Ticket and Airport Park'N Bark is pretty simple. Pet owners will pay a premium for a convenient airport pet boarding solution that more than covers the parking. It will be interesting to see how this plays out, but we think that this should turn into a long term partnership. Read More on Airport Pet Boarding at InstaParking

Bob Hope Airport Continues to Struggle with Uber and Lyft

bob hope airport struggling with ridesharing
Bob Hope Airport is Feeling the Effects of Uber and Lyft

Bob Hope Airport is Going to Charge Uber and Lyft Drivers

We love reporting on disruptive technology and processes, particularly when the challenge the quasi-government agencies that run airports. We wrote an editorial on ridesharing and specifically the Bob Hope Airport in October - Bob Hope Airport Ride Sharing. We pointed out the issues being faced by airports due to ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft. We also referenced an article that had some numbers to back-up the erosion of airport run businesses like airport parking.
In today's lead story, Bob Hope Airport is back in the ridesharing news. The story references the lost parking revenue and a new traffic plan for Uber and Lyft. Oh and by the way, Uber and Lyft drivers will now be charged $3 per half hour to wait for passengers to pick-up. I am sure that eventually this charge will be passed on to Uber and Lyft customers and the airport's hope is that it will deter people from using the service...
We have touched on disruptive innovations that are affecting airports in the past including last Thursday's post and two posts in September:

How Peer-to-Peer Car Sharing is Disrupting the Airport

peer-to-peer car sharing
How Peer-to-Peer Car Sharing is Disruptive to Airports

Peer-to-Peer Car Sharing is Disrupting Entrenched Airport Businesses

We have touched on disruptive innovations that are affecting airports in the past including two posts in September:
Based on Uber in the title, you can guess that both articles cover how ride sharing is disruptive to existing airport businesses including taxis, buses, etc. They do touch on Car Sharing, but in terms of how companies like Zip Car have affected rental car operations at the airport.
Today's lead story covers the re-branding of RelayRides as Turo to better position their brand for international expansion. If you have never heard of RealyRides, they are a peer-to-peer car sharing service based in San Francisco. If you are a regular reader of InstaParking news, you may remember our coverage of Flightcar. Or, you may have heard of GetAround, another peer-to-peer car sharing competitor.The basic idea is that when you get to the airport instead of paying for parking, you hand your keys over to someone who rents your car. In this scenario, the airport loses rental car revenue and parking revenue. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the coming months.

Airport Parking Enforcement: Police or Customer Service?

Should parking enforcement personnel's number one job be a police officer or a customer service representative?
airport parking enforcement
What direction should Airport Parking Enforcement take?

Airport Parking Enforcement

I live in a town in New Jersey that has seen booming growth in the last couple years. It has become a year around hot spot, particularly on weekends in the summer. A couple years ago, the town numbered all the street parking spots and installed automatic parking meters. There was push back because we all hate change and even more so when something that we have gotten for free for so long is now a paid service.
Outside of the knee-jerk complaints, there were real problems with the technology. The machines broke down and wouldn't always accept payments. The technology problems were compounded by confusing signs on the paid parking hour. The result was numerous tickets being written in a short period of time. The local paper wrote an article on the issue, which I wish I could find online to link to. In addition to outlining the issues and economics of the paid parking, there were a couple paragraphs on parking tickets and the takeaway was that no tourist should come to town and leave with a parking ticket.
Parking enforcement is a tricky proposition. In the tourist town example above, if a tourist gets a ticket, will they ever come back? The same is for airport parking enforcement. There are definitely safety concerns in a post-911 society, but were do you draw the line. Do tickets really solve the problem or create a burden for everyone? Tickets create administrative issues throughout the collection process. How often do the penalties go uncollected? If parking enforcement acts as customer service people that are knowledgeable about the technology and parking process, they become leaders that can direct patrons to properly make payments. The result is a win-win. Positive cash flow for parking with payment coming on time with no collection concerns and the other side of the equation is a positive customer experience.

Where do you stand on parking enforcement? Should parking enforcement be police or customer service? Let us know in the comment section at the bottom of the page.

Make Your Thanksgiving Airport Parking Reservation Now

Holloween is not even over yet, but if you have not already made your travel plans, Thanksgiving is right around the corner. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel days of the year in the United States. You make hotel and airline reservations well before Thanksgiving to ensure your travel is stress-free. So, why haven't you made an Airport Parking Reservation?
It's Thanksgiving, Airlines and Hotels book up. And, airport parking lots also fill up. Making a Thanksgiving airport parking reservation is just as easy as making a Hotel reservation. There are airport parking reservation sites available that are much like the big travel sites, just choose your airport, set your dates, and choose an airport parking lot. In most cases, you can save over 50% off your parking by making a reservation.
Here are a few options for your Thanksgiving Airport Parking Reservation:
thanksgiving airport parking reservationAnother Thanksgiving airport parking reservation option is Park, Sleep, and Fly. Park Sleep and Fly Airport Hotel Packages are a great option for those that need a long term airport parking option but live a long way from an airport,  have one of those very early flights, or both. Usually, the programs are priced competitively with on-airport long-term airport parking.  For example, you may be able to get a hotel room for one night with 14 days of airport parking for $100.00 whereas parking on-airport for $70 a week will be $140.  You saved 28% on airport parking plus got a hotel room near the airport for a less stressful trip to the airport.

Automating Airport Transportation and Parking via InstaParking

Every Tuesday and Thursday InstaParking gives you a round-up of news that matters for Airport Parking operators and patrons.
Automating Airport Transportation
Automating Airport Transportation in Today's InstaParking News

Automating Airport Transportation and Parking

In Tuesday's InstaParking News post, we covered Airport Parking Loyalty Programs. In the post, we included InstaPerks as an example of a very simple off-line parking loyalty solution. The lead story covered the Airport Parking Loyalty program being implemented at Dayton International Airport, which definitely had an online component.
Today's lead story covers the advances being made by ADVAM for automating airport transportation and parking. ADVAM's solution includes airport parking loyalty programs, but it is just one small component. In their solution, ADVAM is addressing pain points beyond parking including automating airport transportation and staff parking. We feel the key component to their solution is ticketless parking. The parker manages their own account and once registered can enter, park and exit at will. For the parker. there is no more waiting in line to make a manual payment. For parking operators, staff leveling becomes easier and they gain valuable insight into their customers parking usage.

Airport Parking Loyalty Programs

Every Tuesday and Thursday InstaParking gives you a round-up of news that matters for Airport Parking operators and patrons.
parking loyalty programs
Does your airport offer Parking Loyalty Programs?

Airport Parking Loyalty Programs

In today's lead story, Dayton International Airport is starting a loyalty program called DAYperks. We are surprised that more airports do not have parking loyalty programs. Or, maybe we are not surprised. Airport parking loyalty programs are popular among off-airport parking operators and most offer some sort of airport parking incentive program.
InstaPerks Parking Loyalty Programs
Sample Punch Cards for Parking Loyalty Programs
When InstaParking managed airport parking, we offered a program called InstaPerks. The InstaPerks Parking Loyalty Program was a simple punch card system that was easy to implement and manage. The punch cards are business cards printed in color on 2 sides and we used a special punch that was shaped like a car. All in, this parking loyalty program can be setup for under $30.
There are a few reasons we are not surprised that more airports are not implementing parking loyalty programs for their on-airport lots:
  • If lots are full or running close to capacity, why bother implementing a parking loyalty program.
  • A simple program like the InstaPerks parking loyalty program is probably not feasible when you consider the airport probably is required to go through a formal bidding process.
  • The human return on investment. Going through the trouble of managing a bidding process, then implementation and monitoring the ongoing program takes human capital and is the amount needed for a parking loyalty program worth the return?

Airport Parking Expansion and The Parking Spot Acquisition

Every Tuesday and Thursday we give you a round-up of news that matters for Airport Parking operators and patrons.
airport parking expansion
Airport Parking Expansion in the News

Airport Parking Expansion

What are the things that stress you when you fly? Getting to your gate on time? Getting to the Airport? Where to park? To answer the last question, there is always a balancing act between, price, convenience, reliability, and availability. Even if the price is not a concern, the short-term lots fill up and unreliable shuttles and long distances from long-term and economy parking lots opens up the market for off-airport operators. One of these operators, The Parking Spot, has made a splash over the last 5 years plus. Their airport parking expansion has included opening new facilities at new airports, as well as acquiring existing airport parking operations.
In today's lead story, The Parking Spot has acquired an existing operation at the St. Louis Airport. This will be their second operation in St. Louis. While you are performing the "where to park" balancing act in your head, the players in the parking business are playing a parking balancing act at a much bigger scale.
Airport parking expansion involves a lot of players and even for an off-airport operator like The Parking Spot, the airport is still a major stakeholder. At the very basic level, The Parking Spot needs permission from the airport to access the grounds with their shuttles to pick up and drop off customers. So, the airport is acting as both a competitor for parking customers and a governing body for granting airport access. At times, this can be a very tenuous relationship. During times of growth and strong budget position, these relationships work well. In a downturn when airports have budget issues, the easiest step by an airport is to squeeze the off-airport parking operators and customers. Read the entire post on Airport Parking Expansion.

Hartsfield Jackson Airport Expansion at Atlanta's Commercial Airport

Every Tuesday and Thursday InstaParking gives you a roundup of the news that matters for Airport Parking operators and patrons.

Atlanta's Hartsfield Jackson Airport Expansion

This isn't the first time, we have addressed airport expansion in recent weeks. Check out:
Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world and with recent growth the infrastructure is being strained. Today's lead story points to issues in parking, bathrooms, roadways, etc. that need to be addressed by Hartsfield Jackson airport expansion. Basically the usual suspects. We thought a few items in this article are worth noting. The article refers to passengers need to use off-airport parking as a bad thing. For those that have tried off-airport parking, I am sure they would disagree and point to the advantages of off-airport parking. The busiest days of the year, every domestic lot is full. As a result, many passengers must use off-airport parking. Also, there is no mention of mass-transit. Atlanta has some transit services in place. Wouldn't expansion of these services help alleviate many of the transportation problems listed in this article?
Give us your thoughts on Hartsfield Jackson airport expansion in the comment section a the bottom of the page.

What (Atlanta's) sole commercial airport (Hartsfield Jackson Airport Expansion)

Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport had 96 million passengers pass through it in 2014, making it the busiest airport in the world, according to Airports Council International. So it isn’t a surprise the airport is operating near capacity.
Atlanta’s passenger traffic has grown five percent and airplane movements are up three percent, so this year is poised to be the world’s busiest airport’s busiest ever.
Ideally, a region Atlanta’s size would have two or more commercial airfields. With 5.6 million people, ours is the only region its size in the country without a second airport with scheduled airline service. Assuming we remain a one-airport region, there are going to be several needs in coming years.
Parking is an issue for customers and employees. The busiest days of the year, every domestic lot is full. As a result, many passengers must use off-airport parking. Between 34 and 51 percent (6,800 to 10,000 vehicles) of current off-site parking users would park at the airport if space permitted. Hartsfield-Jackson plans to replace the existing parking decks with two, new, eight-story structures for customers and will add lots for employees. Read More>>

Southwest Airlines experiencing technology issue

Southwest said it is working to fix the problem but in the meantime, airport-based Employees are working with customers.
“Technology issues” are responsible for delays in checking in for Southwest Airlines flights around the country on Sunday morning, the airline confirmed. Southwest did not say immediately what the technological issues were or what caused them.
The airline said that due to technological challenges, about 450 flights out of the 3,600 scheduled for Sunday were delayed. Read More>>

Council to Vote on Airport (San Antonio International) “Frequent Parking” Program

Good news for frequent flyers out of San Antonio International. The airport is starting up a special parking program for those who spend a lot of time in the air. For around $300 bucks you can get a guaranteed parking spot whenever you need it.

Bob Hope Airport Ridesharing

Every Tuesday and Thursday InstaParking gives you a roundup of the news that matters for Airport Parking operators and patrons.

Bob Hope Airport Ridesharing

Bob Hope Airport Ridesharing

I have mentioned Uber, Lyft, and ride sharing in general in two recent post - Uber Airport Transportation and Airport Welcomes Ridesharing. Ride Sharing is not the main subject of today's lead story on August numbers from the Bob Hope Airport, but if you read down a little you get a glimpse into how Bob Hope Airport ridesharing is viewed by the insiders. Here are a couple quotes from the article:
  • The airport’s parking revenues in August decreased 1.3%.
  • “We suspect we’re seeing the effect of [transportation network companies],”“ Hardyment said, referring to transportation services such as Lyft or Uber.
  • Dan Feger, the airport’s executive director, elaborated on that point, noting that the majority of the revenue decrease is in valet parking, which is mostly business travelers. Those travelers may now be choosing to travel by rideshare rather than drive.
  • Feger said the airport staff will continue to monitor how companies like Lyft and Uber “erode” parking revenues.
So far, Bob Hope is not one of the airports that are blocking Uber and Lyft, but the bullets point to how Bob Hope Airport ridesharing on the radar of insiders and they see it as a disruptive innovation. One solution pointed out in the article is to move ride sharing pickups to short term parking. Oh, by the way, you have to walk past the valet parking to get to short term parking.
Give us your feedback on Bob Hope Airport ridesharing and ridesharing as airport transportation in general in the comment section a the bottom of the page.

Bob Hope Airport Reports 'Strong Month'

Though dipping slightly from 2014, traveler numbers in August exceed 340,000.
While the number of passengers traveling through Bob Hope Airport in August was relatively flat — down 0.2% compared to the same month last year — its tally is in the top three months at the airport since January 2013, according to airfield officials.
There were 342,095 passengers in August, compared to 342,390 in August 2014, missing airport projections for the month by 8,170 passengers. Read More>>

Airport Amenities Continue to Improve - InstaParking Airport Parking News

Every Tuesday and Thursday InstaParking gives you a roundup of news that matters for Airport Parking operators and patrons.
Welcome to the New Airport Amenities
How are Airport Amenities Transforming Your Airport?

Airport Amenities

The days of getting to the airport hungry and having to choose from a couple different stale prepackaged sandwiches is coming to an end... Maybe I am over dramatizing the subject.
Over the years, airports have been transforming from utilitarian buildings with food services that make a High Schools Cafeteria look like Benihana, to opulent meccas of culinary delights. OK, I am over dramatizing again. In the last Airport Parking News roundup, we editorialized about Airport Parking Expansion. We have also covered some of the changes transforming the outside of airports. We have covered Uber airport transportation and other ride-sharing services being blocked by airports while another airport welcomes Uber. Today the lead story covers some interesting airport amenities popping up in airports around the globe.
All airport amenities in the lead story may not be amazing, but they are a quantum leap over the prepackaged stale sandwiches. At the end of the day, the increase in airport amenities is about a bunch of factors with the bottom line being profits. Factors to consider:
  • People spending more time at the airport because of long security lines and flight delays results in a demand for the new airport amenities.
  • Airport operators looking for more revenue streams leads to the receptiveness to new airport amenities and creative ideas.
  • Businesses including restaurants, clothing, gift, etc. that are traditionally off airport look to airports for branding opportunities and expansion.
From golf to shopping malls to trendy lounges, what are your favorite airport amenities? Add your comments at the bottom of this post.

You Won’t Believe the Services Available in these Six Airports

Travelers are spending more time in airports thanks to things like longer security lines and airline flight delays. With that, airports around the world realize that they have a captive audience that’s willing to spend money in their terminals. So they have stepped up their efforts to go after those dollars by offering new and unusual food/beverage, retail and service offerings. Six airports have gone above and beyond by offering unique and unusual concessions and services for travelers.
Los Angeles International Airport has a 7-Eleven, the Dallas-based company’s first in an airport, located in the pre-security area in the Tom Bradley International Terminal. The store offers items similar to the ones in its local stores, including fresh and hot foods, beverages and snacks, along with travel-size personal care products and nonfood items. And yes -- you can also get Slurpees, along with coffee, tea, and cappuccino. The store is open from 6:00 a.m. to midnight. Read More>>

Airport Parking Expansion in Today's News Roundup - Oct 1 2015

Every Tuesday and Thursday InstaParking gives you a roundup of news that matters for Airport Parking operators and patrons.

Airport Parking Expansion

It is amazing how the air travel industry has bounced back... or has it? The lead story in today's Airport Parking News Roundup, covers the announced plans for the Salt Lake International. Having travelled both to and connected through Salt Lake, I can say that updates are needed. The other two stories today also cover expansion, just not at the scale of Salt Lake.
All three stories would make you believe that there is growth in the air travel industry. A quick glance at the stock chart for American Airlines (NASDAQ: AAL) at first says otherwise. The initial 6 month view of American Airlines, show a stock that is down 25% from an April high. Expand the chart out to 2 years or more and you see a much different picture. American Airlines has had a nice climb that peaked in April and has fallen back a little, but is still up almost 100% since October, 2013. United Continental Holdings (NYSE: UAL), JetBlu Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU), and Southwest Airline (NYSE: LUV) look much the same.
Here is today news roundup including Airport Parking Expansion

Plans for Salt Lake International Call for 'Convenient, Inspiring and Sustainable' Airport

SALT LAKE CITY — One giant terminal with spacious gate areas and moving walkways.
A new parking garage, doubling the number of stalls. And an elevated TRAX line leading directly to the second level between the terminal and the parking garage. Those are just a few highlights of Salt Lake City International Airport's $1.8 billion terminal redevelopment project. Read More>>

Cleveland Hopkins' construction update, where to park, plus new places to shop

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- It's a bit of an obstacle course these days at Cleveland Hopkins, which is about halfway through a 12-month, $20-million renovation of the terminal fa├žade, ticketing lobby and lower-level baggage area.
Construction began in May and is scheduled to finish in May 2016, in advance of July's Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Airport officials recommend that travelers allot extra time – 90 minutes to two hours – to maneuver through and around the work zones. Read More>>
