The cost to park at Chicago's airports will increase by as much as two-thirds starting Saturday when new rates take effect, city officials said Thursday.
The biggest fee increase is at the international parking lot at O'Hare International Airport, where the daily rate will jump from $30 to $50 a day, according to the Chicago Department of Aviation.
The daily parking rate in the O'Hare garage and in outdoor Lots B and C near the airline terminals will increase from $26 to $30. The hourly rate, on the first level of the O'Hare garage, will remain the same, topping out at $50 a day. Valet parking goes up from $32 to $45 a day.
The rate in economy parking Lot E increases from $13 to $16, while the rate in economy Lot F stays at $9 a day and Lot G remains at $13 a day, officials said.
At Midway Airport the daily rate in the main parking garage increases from $25 to $28. The hourly rate in the garage remains unchanged, at a maximum of $50 a day. Parking in Midway's economy garage, at 55th Street and Laramie Avenue, and at the red, blue and yellow economy surface lots will cost $14 a day, up from $12.
