O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg has opened a new long-term parking area, just 500m from the airport?s terminals.
The fees for using the new long-term parking facility will remain at current levels, provided that travellers book online.
Travellers using the existing long-term parking area currently need to wait for a shuttle bus which can result in delays due to high traffic volumes on roads around the airport.
The new long-term parking area in the "MSP2? parkade under the City Lodge hotel offers 4,300 parking bays over five levels.
This parkade is a five-minute walk from the domestic and international terminals.
Directional signage for the new long-term parking area has been installed on airport access roads.
The long-term parking area is ideal for travellers who will be away for three days or longer.
Booking a long-term spot can be done through the "Book Parking Online? link at www.airports.co.za. Travellers can save up to 50% of their total parking fees by booking up to five days in advance.
Discounts start at 10% for booking one day in advance, 20% for booking two days in advance, up to 50% off for the five-day maximum advance booking period.
Users of long-term parking will be able to get a quote for their parking on the website and secure a spot, pending availability, as long as the booking is completed no later than 23h00 on the day before entry.
