More stalls and lower weekly rates make parking easy at YYC
Calgary, AB. – The Calgary Airport Authority (the Authority) has opened a new on-site seven-level covered parkade, adding 1,930 more stalls to its parkade facilities, and bringing the total number of available parkade spaces to 7,480. This is the final phase of its Parking Made Easy program, a multi-phase initiative aimed at enhancing the guest experience at YYC.
The Authority is also excited to announce that weekly parking rates in the covered parkades have been reduced to $99. Parking rates in the airport’s surface Economy lot have decreased to $49.95.
“Parking on-site at the airport is by far the most convenient option for travellers,” said Bob Schmitt, Senior Vice President, Planning and Engineering for The Calgary Airport Authority. “With the addition of our new covered parkade and lower weekly rates, we are proud to offer close to 2,000 more covered stalls at a reduced price, just in time for the cold, winter season.”
YYC offers covered short and long-term parking in two parkades, as well as a discounted surface economy lot located adjacent to the Air Terminal Building. YYC also offers complimentary parking for the first 30 minutes in its short-term stalls, and a no-charge ‘park and wait’ cell phone lot.
“With a wide variety of parking options for travellers and visitors, we have a spot for everyone,” added Schmitt.
As part of the Parking Made Easy program, the Authority recently installed 24 automated Express Pay Stations, allowing guests to pay for their parking prior to returning to their vehicle, then quickly exiting the parkade through a designated express lane.
The Calgary Airport Authority is a not-for-profit, non-share capital corporation, responsible for the management, maintenance and development of Calgary International Airport and Springbank Airport under long-term lease from the Government of Canada.
