KCI Airport offers free parking for meeters and greeters
As a new customer convenience, the Kansas City Aviation Department now offers one hour of free parking in the Kansas City International Airport Economy Parking Lot. This gives meeters, greeters and well-wishers a free place to await travelers’ flights to arrive and depart.
To take advantage of the new policy, drivers can park anywhere in the three Economy lots, await their travelers’ cell phone call or set arrival time, and then drive the short distance to the terminals at the appropriate time. Additionally, the new www.m.flykci.com mobile web site can aid cell phone users in tracking flight arrival and departure times.
Using the Economy Parking Lots will save drivers from continually driving around the airport or parking in unauthorized areas while waiting for flights. This is also expected to save energy and lessen pollution. Travelers should especially note that federal regulations prohibit curbside parking except for immediate loading and unloading.
KCI Economy Parking is conveniently located off the main airport roadway and the I-29 Mexico City Avenue exit. For closer in short-term parking, it is just $1 for the first 30 minutes of Garage and Circle parking.
The Kansas City Airport System is an Enterprise Fund Department of the City of Kansas City, Mo., and is supported wholly by airport user charges. No general tax fund revenues are used for the administration, promotion, operation, or maintenance of the airports in the system. Visit www.flykci.comfor more information.
