I think that there are few things more stressful than trying to find a parking spot before a flight. Albany International Airport is working to reduce that stress in the coming months. With more and more people flying out of Albany (and I’m sure more to come with JetBlue beginning service in December), officials have stated they are eyeing additional options for parking.
The plans include expanding the economy E-Lot which would create 300 spaces, converting an employee lot to long-term parking, adding a sixth floor to the current garage with 475 new spaces and creating a new three-story garage with 1,000 new spaces.
Also among the plans is the idea to transform nearly three acres of apron space where planes usually park into vehicle parking. This conversion would be temporary and for no longer than five years. The goal is to have this temporary lot open in time for JetBlue‘s start in Albany in December.
