It has been reported that the summer tourist season has bought an increase of passengers to airports in the South Florida region. As well as domestic traffic, the airports in question are also popular with holidaymakers from Latin America and elsewhere, which has helped to contribute to the boost in airport traffic despite modest growth elsewhere.
For instance, Fort Lauderdale Airport has reported an increase of around 8%, while Miami International Airport enjoyed a 9% passenger boost over the year so far. Most of this increase has been down to the continuing popularity of the region as a place for vacations.
This increase in airport traffic can have an impact on passengers looking to park their cars when they are due to take a flight; if you are planning to fly out of either FLL or Miami International Airport, it is definitely worth booking and confirming your airport parking in advance to make sure you get a space exactly when you need it.
One popular option for many travelers is to park in one of the off-site parking lots close to either FLL or MIA, depending on which airport they’re flying from. One of the benefits of using an off-airport parking lot is that it can often save money on the cost of airport parking, and the lot operators also offer shuttle services to take travelers from the lot to the relevant airport terminal.
This can help to reduce the possibility of congestion at the airport and also makes sure travelers are guaranteed a space if they book in advance – if traffic is going to continue to boom at South Florida airports, it certainly makes sense for passengers to reserve their space before they fly.
