The South Terminal at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) in Texas, US, has selected digital parking reservation service SpotHero to offer guaranteed on-airport parking.

SpotHero offers various facilities across the country with parking options at premium rates. Passengers can book parking spots on the company’s mobile app or website before travelling to the airport.

This partnership is the company’s first on-airport parking partnership in the US. In May, SpotHero partnered with Toronto Pearson International Airport in Canada.

SpotHero currently offers around 100,000 parking spaces at 400 facilities in 60 airports.

The company noted that airports are currently changing their transportation and have moved arrivals and departures for rideshare cabs to farther locations.

Driving and parking at the airport is said to relieve congestion at pick-up and drop-off areas.

LoneStar Airport Holdings operates Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

LoneStar Airport Holdings CFO Brooke Dorrien said: “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.

“Together, we’ve reimagined airport parking to save travellers precious time, eliminate the stress and uncertainty of searching for a spot and simplify the air travel experience overall.”

SpotHero Airport Supply Lead Steven Junkins said: “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.”

In 2017, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport opened its new South Terminal following the completion of a $12m renovation to a 30,000ft2 facility.
