Alaska’s Fairbanks International Airport (FAI) has revealed plans to open a cell phone parking lot for the benefit of those picking up passengers from the terminal.
The lot will allow drivers to wait for free on airport property until their passenger has landed, collected their bags and come to the curb.
“FAI is pleased to announce the opening of the cell phone waiting lot. This much needed addition will reduce concourse congestion and provide a convenient location for residents to wait for arriving passengers free of charge,” said airport manager Angie Spear.
Use of the cell phone lot is restricted to 30 minutes per visit, and vehicles must be attended at all times. The cell phone lot is not for commercial usage, the airport stressed.
