Lanseria opens new parking facility

2013-12-06 14:10
Lanseria - Lanseria International Airport has launched yet another airport enhancement aimed at passenger convenience. Customers can make use of a new car park waiting area to avoid unnecessary parking expenses, when collecting friends and relatives.

The new facility called “Ring & Ride” is located along the entrance road to the airport. Customers can follow the signage into the new parking area to wait in their vehicle, free of charge for up to 1 hour. Once a flight has landed, passengers can ring their friends and family to let them know they are ready for collection. Drivers can then proceed to the Drop & Go facility to quickly pick them up.

“With our ongoing airport enhancements, our passengers will continue to enjoy the convenience that they have grown accustom to. The new waiting area will ensure our ‘Meeters and Greeters/Kissers and Wavers’ can enjoy a speedy pick up, especially over busy periods like the festive season”, says Gavin Sayce, CEO of Lanseria International Airport.

Key facts:

What is it?
The Ring & Ride car park waiting area is an ideal place to wait in your car until your arriving party calls you (on their cell phone), to let you know that their plane has arrived, and they are ready to be collected. You may then drive up to the Drop & Go area and collect them, without having to pay for parking.

How much does it cost?
It's free of charge and can be used for up to one hour, while waiting in your car.

Where is it?
The Ring & Ride waiting area is located on the entrance road leading into the airport next to the ExecuJet facility. It is closely located to both the parking and Drop & Go facilities, which will allow customers to easily make use of either of these. Follow the signage as you enter the airport road to the demarcated vehicle waiting area.

Some Things You Need to Know
This is a free parking lot, but maximum waiting time is one hour. If you need to wait longer, kindly make use of the parking area across the access road. While waiting, the driver must remain in the vehicle. Space in this area is limited, and will be used on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.  It's best to phone your driver once you are waiting at the Drop & Go zone, and not while waiting for your baggage when still inside the airport building.
