Parking spreads its wings

Leeds-based airport parking price-comparison company Looking4Parking.com has made its first business acquisition in the southern hemisphere with the purchase of Melbourne-based Airport Parking Australia.

The deal will give Looking4Parking.com, which provides access to airport parking around the world, full coverage across Australia and New Zealand, with some additional partnerships in Japan.

It is the first in several deals the company is looking to close this year as it expands operations. Last month it partnered with Paris-Beauvais Airport to power the airport’s new website, allowing passengers to book airport parking online at competitive prices.

Airport Parking Australia is represented at 14 airports and six seaports across Australia and New Zealand, as well as seven airports in Japan and has partnerships with Virgin Australia, Jetstar, Tiger Airways, Flight Centre, Avis and American Express.

Looking4Parking.com managing director Martin Mansell said: “Our first acquisition in Australasia will fast-track our growth in the region.

“We have been actively pursuing acquisitions globally but the Australian and New Zealand market was top of our list and, having explored a number of business opportunities, Airport Parking Australia was the obvious choice for us.”
