AENA (the Spanish Airports Authority) has put the works for the new types of airport car parks out to tender, aiming to optimise the service and improve the quality.
Among the car parks for which contracts are being given are the VIP parking, the long stay car park and express parking.
These new services, the contracts for which will be awarded during the next three months, will be 100 percent operative for the 2008 Summer season. The objective is that the users of Palma airport will be able to enjoy the same services which they can find in other European airports with regard to different types of parking, with the aim of supplementing the existing car park at the terminal in Palma airport, said AENA sources.
The VIP car park will be situated in the departure area and passengers will be able to collect their car in the car park situated in front of the old terminal A.
The express car park will be situated in the southern area next to the arrivals area, with the aim of making it easy for passengers to collect their cars.
The long stay car park (for long periods of parking) will be situated next to the new cargo terminal. And the number of floors in the terminal car park available for renting on a seasonal basis will be increased, so that the whole of the 5th and 6th floors will be available to them.
The increase in the number of passengers handled by Palma airport and the increase in the number of business visitors and residential tourism has turned Palma airport into one of the busiest airports in Europe.
With these planned investments, AENA is aiming to meet the demand of this clientele, who have these types of parking services in their own countries.
