JACKSONVILLE, Fla. --
The Jacksonville Aviation Authority announced special low parking rates at Jacksonville International Airport this holiday season.
Effective today through Jan. 16, 2011, the rate for the Daily Surface Parking Lot will be reduced to $8 a day, down from $10.
In addition, the Economy Lot 3 will be open beginning Dec. 23. For a flat fee of $20, which is $5 lower than last year's special, customers may park until Jan. 4, 2011. The fee is payable with cash or credit card upon entry.
This special event lot will operate on a first-come first-served basis and may close without notice. Free shuttle service is available 24/7 through Jan. 4. Vehicles that remain in Economy Lot 3 after Jan. 4 will be towed at the owner's expense.
Travelers should arrive at least two hours before their flight to allow additional time to locate parking since the first parking choice may not be available.
Other parking options include Economy Lots 1 and 2 ($6.00 per day), Daily Garage ($12.00 per day) or the Hourly Garage ($16.00 per day). All prices include tax.
JAA recommends that travelers who meet and greet their families/friends use the hourly garage, if available. Another option is to wait in the free courtesy waiting lot, located next to the JAA's administration building, until family/friends arrive.
