Airport plans more upgrades to parking options

Catching a flight? The San Antonio International Airport is adding features to make parking easier.

SAN ANTONIO — Parking at San Antonio International Airport is receiving a major upgrade.

Travelers can check parking availability before leaving their home. The Park Assist app shows the number of open spots in the short term garage. The San Antonio International Airport website offers information on all three parking locations; the short term lot, long term lot and green lot.

The Park Assist lighting system has been installed in the short term garage.

Panels let drivers know how many spaces are open in each row. Colored dots overhead mark open spots.

The Park Assist app stores parking spot locations. If a driver forgets where they left their vehicle, the app will provide row information.

“We already have the most economic and closest parking available here at the airport,” said Clay White, who works at the San Antonio International Airport. “Now we have the most efficient. When you're trying to make your flight on time and beat the lines, it really does make it a lot easier for you.”

The lighting system will be added to the long term garage later this year.

Also in the works, the San Antonio International Airport will soon be the only airport in Texas with true, curbside valet. Drivers will also be able to schedule a car wash and oil change upgrade during their travels.
