Parking Priorities

Written by Jenny McLeod

Parking at Queenstown Airport has got a whole lot easier with the advent of new sensor technology providing up-to-the-minute information on available parking spaces.

Olivia Pierre, GM commercial and customer experience, says the technology is another step in the company’s bid to enhance the experience of visitors to the airport.

“Real-time parking availability is commonplace across the globe and provides customers with the information they need to make a choice about their transport options when visiting the airport.”

The sensor technology means the number of real-time spaces at terminal car parks A and B are now visible on the airport website and available to view on desktop, tablet and mobile devices which means people can plan their trip to the airport in advance.

Olivia says available spaces will soon also displayed on digital signs at the airport roundabout and at the car park entry gate, so visitors can also see where the unoccupied parks are when they arrive.

The sensors, which are currently available for terminal car parking only, were installed late last year and fully tested over the busy summer period.

“In time they will be rolled out to the airport Park and Ride facility at Brookes Road to provide a complete airport parking picture for visitors,” she says.

Real-time parking information is part of a wider investment in technology by Queenstown Airport with other new initiatives to improve customer experience planned later this year.
