Latest Partnership Caps a Year of Rapid Growth for SpotHero’s Airport Parking Vertical
CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SpotHero, the leader in digital parking, today announced a partnership with The South Terminal at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), giving travelers a simple way to find and reserve guaranteed, affordable, and conveniently located on-airport parking. Adding to nearly 100,000 parking spots serving the top 60 airports in North America, SpotHero is prepared for the busiest holiday travel season in history: last year, a record 112.5 million Americans, roughly one-third of the country’s population, traveled in December—a 4.4% increase from the previous year.
The South Terminal at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, operated by LoneStar Airport Holdings, marks SpotHero’s first on-airport parking partnership in the United States. SpotHero previously announced an on-airport partnership with Toronto Pearson International Airport in May. Capping a year of significant expansion at airports nationwide, SpotHero nearly doubled its number of airport parking facilities in 2019, and is now offering travelers nearly 100,000 parking spaces at 400 facilities serving 60 airports.
SpotHero’s airport expansion comes at a time when airports across the country are increasingly rethinking and streamlining curbside transportation. In efforts to reduce curbside traffic, a number of airports, including AUS, have already relocated rideshare arrivals and departures to more removed locations. As airports and travelers adjust to the transition, driving and parking at the airport provides a convenient and often more affordable alternative, without adding to congestion in crowded pick-up and drop-off locations.
“With the most expansive network of airport parking options in North America, SpotHero has an unparalleled understanding of the unique challenges airports face, and is the ideal partner to help us improve the parking experience for South Terminal passengers,” said Brooke Dorrien, CFO of LoneStar Airport Holdings. “Together, we’ve reimagined airport parking to save travelers precious time, eliminate the stress and uncertainty of searching for a spot and simplify the air travel experience overall.”
“SpotHero helps simplify parking for millions of drivers each month—and this year, we’ve invested aggressively to build the largest online network of airport parking options in North America,” said Steven Junkins, Airport Supply Lead at SpotHero. “We’re inspired by The South Terminal’s dedication to improving the travel experience by becoming our first on-airport partner in the United States, offering unprecedented ease and convenience to its passengers. We look forward to working together to enhance the travel experience.”
