Jackson Hole Airport Introduces State-Of-The-Art Parking Technology

Aug. 8, 2019

SKIDATA’s latest airport PARCS installation has recently been completed at Jackson Hole Airport in Jackson Hole, Wyoming located within Grand Teton National Park. As larger airports continue to improve and update their infrastructure, smaller airports such as Jackson Hole have been following suit. This improvement not only creates a more secure parking facility for airport travelers, but was also designed to be more convenient as well.

The project included four lots with a total of 11 lanes of SKIDATA automated Power.Gate entry and exit devices. Five entries and six exit lanes provide secure parking for staff members and travelers with both ticketed - paid parking as well as a standard HID system handling employee access. This modern system replaces an antiquated one that required travelers to pay in advance. The two Credit.Cash APM units for credit-card-only transactions provide the convenience of self-service payment within the terminal and every exit is outfitted with EMV readers for payment directly in the exit lanes.

The customers directly interacting with the new system can convey the project success better than anyone. “I found the ticketing machines very straightforward and easy to use,” commented Valarie Brown, a frequent airport traveler. “It’s so nice not to have to put in how many nights I will be there nor have to return to my car to get my luggage. It will be particularly nice this winter.”

For the Jackson Hole Operations Team, the addition of the SKIDATA web applications of sweb Report and sweb Control provide simplified system data and maintenance access from any internet enabled device.

“Jackson Hole Airport is one of the most unique in the country, residing entirely within a National Park,” said Matthew Gambardella, Sales Professional with SKIDATA. “They have been a terrific partner to work with and SKIDATA was able to deliver a successful installation right on schedule. They face brutal winter conditions, but a state-of-the-art SKIDATA system hasproven functionality in even the coldest climates. We’re confident that our solution will exceed their expectations, and we look forward to working with them for years to come.”
