Parking goes digital at Ontario International Airport

LinkedIn +

Travelers flying out of Ontario International Airport (ONT) in California can now reserve on-site parking via an innovative parking system, which is accessible through the airport’s website.

Passengers simply need to visit, enter and check-in and return date, chose a parking package based on desired lot location and cost, submit payment online and then scan an emailed barcode upon entry and exit to the parking lot

“The new parking feature is all about improving the airport experience,” said Mark Thorpe, chief executive officer of the Ontario International Airport Authority. “We recognize that our customers have choices, so it is critically important that we continue to add new services and amenities that make ONT even more convenient than other airports in Southern California.”

Daily and valet parking are available through the online pre-payment system, which tracks available spaces and identifies options where the greatest savings are available.

“Flights are booked in advance. Hotels are booked in advance. There is no reason for parking to be such a guessing game. This service removes the stress of wondering if there will be an affordable parking spot waiting for you,” said Martin Jones, president and CEO of MAG USA, developer of the online reservation system.

Travelers will still have the option of paying for parking when they exit ONT using the existing system, but to qualify for special pricing, they must book in advance online.
