PARKING RATES AT AIRPORTS TO INCREASE

Date: Dec 07, 2016
Press Release Number: 236-2016

Increases designed to manage parking demand in busiest central terminal areas, while maintaining lower-cost option for long-term parking customers

Beginning December 10, 2016, the maximum daily parking rate in central terminal area parking lots at LaGuardia Airport (LGA) will increase to $59. The maximum daily rate for P10, LGA’s long-term lot, will remain $18 as part of an ongoing holiday promotion lasting through December 31, 2016. After that, it will return to its regular rate of $39 per day, maintaining a lower-cost long-term parking option for customers.

Hourly rates at LaGuardia’s premium central terminal area parking lots will increase from $8 per hour to $10 per hour, subject to the maximum daily rate.

LaGuardia central terminal area parking lots adjacent to the terminals are expected to be at capacity during peak periods. Lot P10, which offers an on-airport parking alternative with free shuttle service to all terminals, is expected to have substantial capacity at a reduced rate. To mitigate roadway congestion for vehicles picking up and dropping off passengers, the first three hours of parking for customers in the Hourly Parking Lot P5 are free.

Daily parking rates at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) will also increase on or about January 8, 2017.

The daily maximum rate at Newark’s closest central terminal lots will increase from $33 to $39 per day, and the daily maximum rate at JFK’s highest-demand Green/Red/Orange lots will go from $33 to $35 per day. Long-term parking rates will remain at $18 per day at both airports.

The scheduled rate increases are designed to manage parking demand in the busiest central terminal areas of each airport, while preserving a cost-effective long-term parking alternative for customers. The maximum daily parking rate has not changed since June 1, 2009 at JFK and EWR, and since July 15, 2014 at LGA. The hourly rate has not changed since July 1, 2013 for all three airports.

The rate increases are as follows:
