$12 Valet Parking - NOW OFFERED UNTIL THE END OF 2015!

Columbia Metropolitan Airport is now offering valet parking services at the same price as self-parking in the airport’s garage. Regularly priced at two dollars more than garage parking, this spring-time special will run until the end of 2015.

The valet station is conveniently located on the airport’s upper level at the departure doors. Passengers quickly check in and notify valets of their itinerary so that their vehicle can be waiting on them when they return. In addition to the parking service, customers have several options for having their vehicle washed and detailed while they’re away.

Rates & Fees

Columbia Metropolitan Airport opened a multi-level parking structure on October 16th 2003.  The project, which began in February 2001, now has 1,837 parking spaces in the parking garage with 40 handicap spaces and 1,668 spaces of uncovered parking available in the surface parking lot, which includes 15 handicap parking spaces.  Both parking areas combined gives the traveling public 3,505 available parking spaces.

Two choices are available to pay garage and surface parking fees:

  1. Take a ticket to enter the lot or the garage. Upon exiting the parking facility, use Auto Exits 3 or 4. Insert the parking ticket in the reader and then insert a credit card of your choice. The reader displays the fee and automatically charges your credit card, prints and dispenses a receipt and opens the gate for you to exit.
  2. Take a ticket to enter the lot or garage. Exit through one of the Cashier lanes and pay the cashier at the exit booth.
