New Rates will Encourage use of all Parking Facilities /JAA Board Approves New Name for Craig Airport
JACKSONVILLE, January 24, 2010 – The Jacksonville Aviation Authority today approved a parking rate adjustment at Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) for the first time since June 2007.
The rate adjustments will become effective on February 1, 2011. The new rates are intended to encourage customers to utilize all parking facilities at JAX, and free up more spaces in the Hourly Garage for use by meeters and greeters.
JAA board members also approved the renaming of Craig Airport to Jacksonville Executive at Craig Airport.
The rates for the Daily Surface Parking and Economy lots 1 and 2 will be lowered by $2, while the parking rate for Economy lot 3 will be lowered by $5. The Hourly Garage and Daily Garage rates will each see a $2 increase.
The incremental rates in the garages and daily surface parking lot will remain the same at $1.50 per 20 minutes, or any portion thereof.
“We want to make sure that there are convenient and affordable parking options for all of our customers at JAX,” said JAA Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director, Steve Grossman. “We hope that these adjusted rates will offer a wider variety of parking options for our customers.”
Along with the new rates, the JAA will be introducing a Frequent Parker Program to JAX customers in the spring which will offer free parking with earned points. The JAA will also continue to grow its Premier Parking for business travelers due to the overwhelming response to the program.
JAX has a public parking facility capacity of approximately 8,724 parking spaces, which are comprised of two garages, one surface lot and three economy lots.
