Editorial on Airport Parking Pet Boarding
As pet owners, we really love today’s lead story on airport parking pet boarding at the Austin Airport. It alleviates some of the stress of planing a trip, by having a convenient location for Fido while you travel. We consulted on an airport parking and pet boarding project that ended up not getting off the ground because of political issues with the local government, but have seen a few of these pop up around the country and are intrigued by the idea. Airport parking pet boarding offers some great competitive benefits to parking lot owners and operators:
- Pet owners are loyal and will often pay a premium for great care for a member of their family
- Barriers to entry for a parking lot are low, but they are increased by a combination airport parking pet boarding facility
- A competitive advantage over other parking facilities and one can argue that the marketing would even entice non-pet owners to give the parking a try. Even non-pet owners respond to ads with cute animals.
Here is today’s InstaParking Airport Parking News Roundup. Leave your comments about airport parking pet boarding and the other stories at the bottom of the post.
Park your car – and your pet – at new Austin airport facility
It’s been nearly two years since the Austin City Council approved a contract with Scott Airport Parking LLC to build a covered parking facility for 2,000 cars at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, and the project is finally starting construction.
There’s an unconventional amenity, too — a pet boarding facility named “Bark & Zoom.”
Both services will open in summer 2016 near the intersection of Presidential Boulevard and Texas Highway 71 on airport property. Both also will be open 24/7. Read More>>

Tulsa Airport Sees Decrease in Revenue
Fewer flights and smaller airliners resulted in a 6.5 percent decline in landing fees at Tulsa International Airport this year compared to two fiscal years ago. Tulsa International Airport reported the $405,686 decrease at the September Tulsa Airport Authority meeting Sept. 10.
First place in revenue at $8.28 million, but third on the per-passenger basis at $2.17 was parking, Gann said in his report on concessions. Of the $8.28 million in parking revenues, $7.97 million came from general parking while $313,770 came from valet parking, which has shown steady growth for seven years. It amounted to $26,790 in the 2009 fiscal year. Read More>>
