CHARLOTTE, NC (WJZY) - Say it isn't so!
Charlotte-Douglas International Airport announced on Friday that effective September 9, daily rates for Long Term parking will increase from $5 to $7, and Curbside Valet will rise from $28 to $35.
The airport last increased parking rates on February 17, 2014 for Curbside Valet, Business Valet, the Hourly Deck, Daily Decks and Daily Lots as phase one of a parking rate increase.
Officials said with record-setting local passenger numbers and rising costs associated with providing public parking services, they're now implementing phase two of the parking rate increase.
They said the new rates continue to provide customers with parking options at all price points, including economical parking options.
CLT Airport has approximately 28,000 public parking spaces.
