The Jacksonville Aviation Authority is opening a special parking lot for the Thanksgiving holiday travel season.
From Nov. 21 through Nov. 27, the Economy Lot 3 at Jacksonville International Airport will be open, on a first-come first-serve basis, for a flat fee of $20.
Following Nov. 27, remaining vehicles will be towed.
JAA also offers the following tips for traveling during the holidays:
Arrive at least two hours before your flight to allow additional time to locate parking if your first parking choice is not available.
Other parking options include Economy Lots 1 and 2 ($5.00 per day), Daily Surface Lot ($8.00 per day), Daily Garage ($14.00 per day) or the Hourly Garage ($18.00 per day). All prices include tax.
Travelers who meet and greet their families and friends should use the hourly garage, if available. Another option is to wait in the free courtesy waiting lot, located next to the JAA’s administration building, until family and friends arrive.
