We’re in the thick of winter, which once again seems like it’s here to stay. People are ready for a break, whether it’s to head to warmer climates for some sun or out onto the slopes to make the most of the snow. Airports are full of people heading out for a welcome respite from winter’s monotony. Are your parking lots ready for the rush every day brings?
Airports have a constant ebb and flow of vehicular and foot traffic as people look for parking to get to their flights on time and head out of the airport and back home. Not being able to find a spot on time is riskier than in most other settings– it can mean a missed flight, the hassle of arranging a new one, and countless wasted hours. For airports, it can also mean less time spent in the terminal spending money and more time circling lots looking for somewhere to park.
Guiding travelers to available spots is a win-win for airports. It creates a better customer service experience, happier travelers, and better likelihood that people will spend money at airport stores and concessions. It also helps avoid the chaos of distraught passengers while accruing revenue at airport parking lots instead of at other local lots.
But is it worth the investment?
With a system like OpenSpace by Parking Logix, the answer is a no-brainer. The low-cost parking guidance system is completely wireless- avoiding the hefty costs of wiring each and every parking spot. Instead, sensors are used only at entry and exit points for the same accurate counts at a fraction of the cost.
Parking availability data is displayed at lot entrances and can be made available to travelers in airport apps, on your airport site, or on the third party parking apps of your choice. It helps guide parkers into available spots and helps them avoid areas that are already full.
OpenSpace by Parking Logix helps airports build revenue in lots and airport terminals while creating a happier, calmer traveler experience.
