Off-Site SEA Parking Expansion Debated

An off-site parking vendor serving Seattle Tacoma International Airport has put forward proposals to extend the parking lot as part of a long-term development strategy.

The plan put forward by the owner of the off-site lot proposes extending the lot by annexing the property to the south. The effect of this would be to more than double the size off its current operation. Part of the debate around the issue is happening because in order for the lot to extend, the property to the south would need to be reclassified so passengers would be able to park there.

Another issue that is currently being debated is the longer term prospects for the off-site lot serving SeaTac Airport. The owner of the lot believes that the nearby SR-509 will one day be extended, which would have the impact of increasing traffic in the area, and one part of the proposal is to eventually build a hotel on the same site.

The proposals are currently being debated by SeaTac City Council, but it is proving to be somewhat contentious for several members of the council, so the debate continues.

For passengers looking for parking near Seattle Tacoma International Airport, there are currently multiple off-site parking lot options. There are around 20 off-site parking choices for travelers, with a range of facilities and parking options (including long and short term) on offer. Passengers can also benefit from a free shuttle bus to take them from the off-site lot to the airport.

The debate over the proposed expansion looks set to go on for some time yet.

Major Airports Nearing Capacity

Newark Liberty, LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy International Airports are some of the busiest in the United States. With a combined capacity of 110 million passengers between them, in 2010 they came close to reaching this with a total of 103 million travellers passing through the airports.

With demand for the airports likely to rise – it’s expected to reach 130 million by 2029 – the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is set to study ways the airports could extend their capacity in order to meet the upcoming challenges. If changes aren’t made to extend the capacity of the airports, it is thought that the region could lose billions of dollars as passengers are forced to fly elsewhere.

Any changes that are made to extend capacity are likely to cost billions of dollars and cause disruption at the airports until the alterations (such as a new runway and terminal relocations at Newark Liberty International Airport) are complete. As demand grows, another area that is likely to be affected is airport parking, which is already in demand but could soon become overcrowded as passenger numbers continue to rise.

One option for passengers flying through these airports is to make use of the extensive range of off-site parking lots that serve the airports. JFK Airport, Newark Liberty Airport and LaGuardia Airport are all served by multiple off-airport parking options that provide parking alternatives for customers unable to find airport parking or simply looking for a different parking solution. Shuttle buses are included to take passengers to their final destination.

Disruption At JFK

A man who used a stolen ID card and old boarding passes featuring names not his own in order to illegally board at flight at JFK airport was arrested at LAX this week. The man is said to be Nigerian-born and he used up to 10 different boarding passes in order to get through the heavy security in place at the airport and make his way onto a flight.

He apparently used the same method to fly to Los Angeles International Airport, where he was arrested and accused of being a stowaway on a plane. He was trying to board a plane to Atlanta from LAX when the arrest took place.

It wasn’t the only disruption at New York’s John F Kennedy Airport this week, either. On a slightly lighter not – on the morning of Wednesday 29th June, dozens of flights were delayed by 150 terrapin turtles in search of beach.

It might sound like something out of a comedy show, but planes were forced to divert to alternative runways as the turtles crawled across the tarmac. The animals were looking for somewhere to lay their eggs and evidently had become confused in their search for a suitable place. JFK Airport staff had to then make their way onto the tarmac to rescue the turtles and transport them across the airport facility. As a result, flights were delayed by an average of up to 30 minutes.

Following the above incidents, flights from JFK Airport are said to be operating normally once more.

Road Improvement Impacts LAX

Passengers flying from LAX on 16th and 17th July are advised to leave extra time for their journey to the airport due to the closure of the 405 Freeway. The closure, which is to allow construction workers to demolish the south side of the Mulholland Bridge prior to building a new, better alternative, is due to affect around 10 miles of the freeway.

As a result, there is expected to be traffic congestion and diversions in place that will affect the route to the airport. As a result, some suggestions can be made to passengers flying into or out of Los Angeles International Airport to keep disruption to a minimum and ensure they still make their flights.

Travelers are advised to leave their cars at home or in a public garage if possible: one option is to park use LAX off-site parking lots and take a shuttle bus in, remembering to leave extra time in case of congestion. One thing to bear in mind is that some shuttle diversions are in place due to the freeway closure, so passengers should check ahead to make sure their route is unaffected and, if possible, take a shuttle from downtown LA.

The road works taking place are part of a $1 billion improvement of the 405 Freeway, including the addition of a new carpool lane. With the disruptions expected to continue for some time while the improvements are made, travelers flying to and from LAX are advised to keep up to date with the latest developments so they can make allowances for their journey.
