Kelowna city council will ponder slight airport parking fee hike at YLW for 2023

Airport parking fees may rise

Parking fees are set to reach new heights at Kelowna International Airport.

Kelowna city council on Monday will discuss a recommendation from YLW that parking fees increase in January.

The airport is asking for a 25-cent increase for each hour after the first hour—from $3 to $3.25—and a 24-hour maximum of $24.25, which would be up from the current price of $23.

As for the long-term parking lot, YLW is also asking for a 25-cent jump for each hour after the first hour—from $3 to $3.25—and a 24-hour maximum of $15.75. The current daily maximum in the long-term lot is $15.

The weekly long-term rate would undergo a $3.75 increase, from $75 to $78.75.

The fee for UBCO students and staff to use the airport parking lot for a semester would also be on the rise, jumping from $360 to $377.75.

The annual increase would be equal to B.C.’s all items consumer price index for the 12 months that ended on June 30.

If approved, the parking fee increase would take effect on Tuesday, Jan. 3.

The last YLW parking fee increase occurred in January 2022.
