Airport Parking Fee
There are many travellers who go out by a morning flight and return in the evening. There are some who go out for a day or two. Presently they get dropped at the airport by their own car or take a cab ride. On return they are picked up by their own car or they take a pre-paid cab back home. Presently overnight parking costs Rs 300 per day. This does not work out economical for a person to park his car overnight. Two trips of the personal car or taxi fares would work out cheaper; hence people prefer these options.
I have a suggestion. If the AAI were to revise the rates and make it attractive then many such frequent travellers would drive to the airport, park their car there and pick it up on return. (This is what happens everywhere in the west and other developed countries). This would fill up much of the vacant parking bays lying unutilised in the parking area and generate a lot of revenue. I would recommend Rs 125/- per day for the first seventy two hours and Rs 150/- per day beyond that. The enhanced rates after seventy two hours (3 days) would encourage people to free up the parking space early. more
