Jacksonville International Airport officials expect Sunday to be the busiest day of the Thanksgiving travel weekend.
In preparation for the increase of travelers, it's opening the Economy Log 3 and offering $20 parking from Wednesday, November 25 through Wednesday, December 2.
The fee is payable upon entry with cash or credit card.
This special event lot will operate on a first-come, first-serve basis and may close without notice.
Free shuttle service is available through December 2.
Vehicles remaining in Economy Lot 3 after December 2 may be towed at the owner's expense.
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.
Below are estimates of the number of passengers who departed JAX in 2014 and 2015 over Thanksgiving weekend.
"JAX is experiencing an increase in the number of passengers this year," said Michael Stewart, director of External Affairs. "So giving yourself extra time to park, get to the terminal and get through security will go a long way in reducing the stress of traveling over the busy holiday season."
