Westchester, NY (PressExposure) April 08, 2013 -- A new long-term lot is opening on the airport property less than half a mile from the main passenger terminal, offering full shuttle-service via a new specially-equipped Mercedes Benz van. Free luggage loading and unloading services are included.
The lot, which holds 250 to 300 cars,is affordably priced at $15.00 a day for stays of three days or more.
"It's the perfect option for travelers who will be away for a few days or more, whether they're flying for business or pleasure", said Joseph Apicella of Westchester Airport Associates and Executive Vice President of Cappelli Enterprises, the holders of a ground lease for the airport area parking facilities. "In just two minutes, you'll be at the terminal without worrying about your car or having to carry your luggage."
The new long-term lot will be managed by Park Plus Airport Parking, which also runs airport parking and shuttle services at J.F.K. and Newark Liberty International airports as well as airport shuttle services facilities throughout the metropolitan area.
"Our company takes pride in our reputation for customer satisfaction and this new service at Westchester is an exciting new option for travelers," said Larry Toto, a co-owner of Park Plus. "Making parking easy and convenient is a good way to take the stress out of catching a flight. We're excited to bring this new approach to long term parking [http://www.parkplusairportparking.com/westchester-location] at Westchester County Airport."
Apicella explained that until now travelers planning on going away for three or more days had to search out alternative ways to either get to the airport, or they were forced to park miles away and endure a long, uncomfortable bus ride to the terminal.
"This solves that problem and at a highly affordable price," Apicella said.
The new long-term lot is a repurposing of the current overflow lot where people have been parking in the event that the main garage is full. The opening of the long-term lot is the first step in a major upgrading program that will be carried out at Westchester County Airport over the coming months. Improvements to the airport's parking infrastructure will include new signage, lighting, paving, planters, painting and upgrading the cell phone parking lot and repairs and upgrades to the main terminal parking garage.
