TIA parking fees to increase

Posted: Updated:

Parking at Tampa International Airport is about to cost more.

On Thursday, the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority approved the first parking increase since 2007.

Officials said short-term hourly rates will double from $1 to $2. That means parking for each hour would increase from $3 to $6.

The maximum daily rate will go up to $20, an increase of $1.

Airport officials said the rate hike is expected to generate an additional $1 million dollars in revenue. Money would be used for parking improvements and help keep costs charged to the airlines at a minimum.

Officials said there would be no change to the rates for the airport's economy garage parking.

The new rates will go into effect in October.
