Will Rogers World Airport introduced a new parking choice for customers this morning with the reopening of the lower level of the two-story parking garage.

The long-anticipated Premium Parking facility provides customers close, covered parking with convenient access to the terminal building.  Additional amenities include an online reservation system for designated spaces in the garage and a separate exit lane for parkers who use the prepay kiosks located in baggage claim and in the pedestrian tunnel.  Just as a reminder, prepaying for any of the airports parking facilities provides the customer with a more convenient exit experience.

The cost for Premium Parking is $18 per day. There is a $5 fee to make a reservation online. The reservation system is now live and customers can make their reservation here.

No hourly rate will be available in the Premium Parking garage. This new parking option is available only to long-term parking customers. This means that anyone who enters the garage will be subject to a full day rate of $18. Customers seeking hourly parking should use the recently reopened upper level of the 2-story garage, which is designated for short-term parking.

The lower level of the two-story garage has been planned for Premium Parking since 2016 when rental car companies relocated to the new Car Rental Center on Meridian Avenue.  Before it could be reopened to the public, numerous improvements needed to be made.  Work to address water intrusion issues proved to be significant, extending the completion date.   Other improvements made during the project included the replacement of all expansion joints, a new traffic membrane on the hourly parking level, new signage, new parking access control equipment, and other minor structural rehabilitation.
