A lot of Holiday Parking


A lot of Holiday Parking

In a move that could be called genius, but is really just plain common sense, San Antonio International Airport has opened an extra parking lot for the holidays. According to ksat.com:

The new “Green Lot” will be open starting Monday, Dec. 22. Travelers can use the lot for a cost of $8 a day. Parking at the lot can only be paid for by credit card.

The organization Airlines for America is reporting that 45 million people will travel between December 17  and January 4 this season and that December 19 will be the busiest day of all.

A4A Senior Vice President, Legislative and Regulatory Policy, says airports around the country are profiting from increased travel by U.S. consumers, and they are using those profits to improve their facilities.

“Airlines continue to invest heavily in airport infrastructure and there is not a single project that is not being realized through existing funding resources,” said Pinkerton. “Since 2008, the 29 largest airports alone have started or completed over $52 billion of capital projects, with significant airline support. We believe airports have adequate resources to fund necessary projects instead of raising taxes on airline customers, who contribute to airport revenues with every ticket they buy.”

If you can’t make money at an airport during the holidays, through tickets, vending or parking, it’s a darn shame. In San Antonio, a holiday lot is win-win for the airport and its customers.
