Airport parking analysis

Analysis of the parking habits of travellers at British airports in the last 12 months has shown a growth in the share of the market for meet and greet parking – the sector took a 9.6% bigger slice of the overall airport parking market.
The data from airport parking price comparison site Looking4Parking.com looked at the booking habits of travellers at 26 UK airports between May and July 2012 against the same period in 2011.
The three biggest types of parking were analysed: onsite parking at the airports; park and ride services, where travellers drop their vehicles off at off-site facilities and are ferried to the airport; and meet and greet parking, where travellers are welcomed outside the airport terminal by a parking company which deals with the customer’s car.
The figures showed that the meet and greet sector grew from 49.17% in 2011 to 58.72% in 2012, an increase of 9.6% of all airport parking.  The growth was at the expense of park and ride schemes which lost 5.2% of the overall share (down from 36.08% to 30.92%) and onsite parking which lost 4.4% (down from 14.75% to 10.37%).  www.looking4parking.com
