What's the Buzz?

Airport parking going up March 1

By James Pilcher
The Cincinnati Enquirer

        The price for parking is going up at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. For the first time in nearly three years, the board that oversees the airport this week approved a higher fee. The last increase came in December 1998.

        But the price increase affects only the rates for 24-hour parking for both short- and long-term lots.

        The rate for a full day of short-term parking will go up from $9 to $11 on March 1.

        However, a car won't be charged for the full-day rate unless it has been in the garage at least five hours; the previous minimum was four hours.

        And a full day of long-term parking will rise from $5 to $6.

        The new rate increase coincides with the planned opening of the new addition to the short-term garage in front of Delta Air Lines' Terminal 3.

        Other rates, such as less than one hour, 2 to 4 hours and the like, remained unchanged.

        Airport officials said that the rates were still competitive if not below those of other airports in the region, including Dayton, Louisville, Lexington, Columbus and Indianapolis.
