Airport Map


The airport has a number of paid parking lots. Parking is $10 per day (Tuskegee Airmen/Amelia Earhart Lots) or $9 per day (Wright Brothers Lot). The lots are automated and accessible 24 hours a day. When entering a paid lot, take a ticket and the gate will open. KEEP THIS TICKET. The system will automatically calculate the amount owed when visitors want to leave the lot. Visitors may pay using a credit card only at the exit gate when leaving.

To pay for your parking, the kiosks located in the terminal or in baggage claim should be used (in-terminal kiosks accept credit cards). For assistance, push the help button at the gates or kiosks.

A shuttle bus serves the overflow lot near the Scotch Road entrance. For more information on parking, or for assistance, call 609-306-7805.
