Paid parking to be introduced at Karratha Airport


The
Pilbara Echo reported last week that Karratha Airport will soon be introducing
paid parking. Recent upgrades to the car park will result in the airport
offering over 1000 parking bays, with specific allocations for long term, short
term, rental car bays, staff parking and an upgraded pick and drop off zone.

Paid
parking, which will be introduced upon completion of the upgrades which are due
in December, follows customer feedback highlighting the difficulty of finding
parking spaces in the past due to the large number of FIFO (Fly-in, fly-out) workers
parking cars for extended periods of time.

Cars
will be allowed to park up to one hour free of charge, enabling people to pick
up and drop off friends and relations at no cost. Different pricing regimes
will apply for short and long term parking. Short term charges will range from
$3 for 1-2 hours, to $25 for the day and long term parking will cost $10 a day,
decreasing to $6 a day after the first 14 days.

The
introduction of car parking fees is designed to fund and ensure the ongoing
high level of maintenance of the airport, including improved facilities and
services for passengers and visitors.

PCI
is pleased to have been involved in the planning and recommendations for the
introduction of paid parking at Karratha, and is looking forward to seeing the
increased capacity and management systems excel as demand for parking at the
airport continues to grow.
