Parking options at Kelowna International Airport (YLW) have just gone up a notch.
Starting Dec. 1, valet parking services will be offered at YLW.
“We are always looking for opportunities to make a positive impact for travellers using our airport,” says Airport Director Sam Samaddar.
“Valet parking is one of those added services that, for the right passenger in a hurry, with special needs or with their hands full, can make a positive difference.”
For a fee added to the daily or weekly long-term parking rate, passengers arriving by personal vehicle can drive to the valet kiosk at the south entrance of the terminal building.
Once the vehicle keys are handed to the attendant and flight information is provided, the passenger is free to catch their flight.
When the passenger returns to YLW, whether gone for the day, two weeks, or longer, their car will be waiting for them near the valet kiosk.
As an introduction to the new service, the valet parking rate will be $10 in December and on January 1 the fee will increase to $15.
This service fee will be added to the final parking cost at the end of the daily or weekly long-term parking rate.
Royal Star Enterprises provides the parking services at YLW. In addition to the valet service, Royal Star staff also provide the free courtesy ride to and from the terminal for passengers who park in the long-term lot.
