The airport needs to fund construction of a new parking garage to accommodate growing demand. Now, that convenience comes with a higher price tag. Prices in the economy lot will increase from $7 to $9 a day. Long-term parking jumps from $9 to $12 daily, while short-term parking grows from $15 to $21. Travelers will notice that the parking rates have increased. The first 15 minutes are free, but then it goes up $1 for every 15-minute increment.
