SFO Parking Costs May Rise

San Francisco International airport is planning to raise by a dollar a day, from January, the cost of long term parking. This is another price hike from SFO which is having to bear the brunt of major outlay on terminal modernisation and a depressed travel market. The rise is still to be approved by the AIprorts board of advisors.

“All fees are reviewed annually and charged based on cost recovery or market rates,” airport spokesman Michael McCarron said. “The airport’s (SFO) long-term parking rate has not been increased since July 2008. Parking demand at the long-term garage continues to be strong. The garage fills up and is closed for periods of time on holiday weekends.”

Its also thought that a new fee will be levied on operators of off airport parking. A spokesperson for Airport Parking Reservations said: “As an intermediary between parking lot operators and customers we expect to be able to offer the same great value that we always have.”

United will serve over 59 countries and 370 airports.
