The Niagara Falls International Airport has almost doubled the number of parking spaces in lot 3, according to the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority.
In an effort to accommodate the ever-increasing number of passengers utilizing the NFIA, an additional 500 parking spaces have been added to the 600 that were created this past January, when the overflow lot was first opened.
Lot 3, located just south and across the street from the terminal on Niagara Falls Boulevard, is fenced, paved and lighted. Additionally, shelters are in place to provide protection from the elements and the NFTA police patrols the lot.
Free shuttle service to and from the terminal is provided during regularly scheduled flights. The lot is opened after main lots 1 and 2 become full. Lots 1 and 2 each have 250 spaces on airport property and are accessed via the airport's main entrance.
Standard Parking operates all of the parking facilities under an existing contract that is in place for services rendered at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport. Parking rates are $5 per day with a maximum weekly rate of $25, which is paid upon entry. The airport now has a total of 1,600 parking spaces.
The terminal is serviced by Allegiant Air (beginning Dec. 15), Direct Air and Spirit Airlines. Flight schedules and destinations for all three carriers can be accessed via NFIA's website at www.niagarafallsairport.com.
