Victoria International Airport parking lots filling up fast for holiday getaways

Lot 2 now being used, as Lot 1 is completely full

As the days inch closer to Christmas, shopping malls aren’t the only places you’ll find it harder to grab a parking spot.

Parking Lot 1 at the Victoria International Airport (YYJ) is now full, which leaves Lot 2, the second half of parking spaces, dwindling down.

Travellers are advised to follow the signs and direction of the parking attendants on duty towards Lot 2 if they plan to drop off their car and head off to the holiday destinations.

A courtesy shuttle bus will be making loops to all the parking areas to offer travellers a ride to the terminal.

Parking costs $16 each day for the first 5 days, then $8 for each additional day.

As travellers come back from their holiday getaways, a courtesy shuttle is available to return those who parked their vehickes in Lot 2, until 1 a.m. on Jan. 6, 2020.

The shuttle will be located across from Arrivals in the Short Term Lot.

Taxi vouchers will be available at the Red Coat Information Desk or at the Robbins Parking Booth.
