The Salt Lake City International Airport is offering a new premium parking service that travelers can reserve online in advance of their airport visit.Nancy Volmer is a spokesperson for the airport. She says a lane closure during the on-going redevelopment project created an opportunity to offer increased convenience.

“And it’s something that I think a lot of business travelers are going to be happy with because basically you’re driving up to right outside the door of the terminal,” Volmer says, “So you can just park in one of the 70 or so reserved parking spaces and walk right onto the bridge that leads into the security area of the airport.”

The included concierge service comes at a hefty $50 dollars-a-day cost but online reservations are simple using the “Click and Park” option on the parking page at slcairport.com. Three spaces are ADA-accessible and nine spaces are designed for oversized vehicles. Volmer says the initial launch of the program has been very successful. She says airport managers hope make it a permanent offering when the redevelopment project is completed in 2020.
