Just in time for the holidays, Colorado Springs Airport (COS) is offering passengers free parking November 1st through December 31st. Better news, this will apply to short-term as well as long-term parking. Even better news, valet parking will be half-price during this period.
While far from the most expensive airport parking, it is nice to see COS step up and offer some holiday cheer to its guests. Airport officials estimate that this will cost them about $300,000 in lost revenue but believe that (A) they can make up some of this from increased traffic that otherwise flies out of Denver, and (B) cost savings during the year will also help offset the reduced revenue.
While we are seeing more and more airports adopting free Wi-Fi, it is very rare to see them offering free parking. Now if only COS airport management could just get some other airports to match their holiday gift.
