Chattanooga Airport Parking Equipment Installation to Begin

New equipment to improve customer convenience

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (May 1, 2015) – The process to upgrade parking revenue control equipment at the Chattanooga Airport will begin Monday and customers are encouraged to read signs posted throughout the terminal and in the parking lots for guidance during the transition.

“We are trying to create awareness of this project to help our customers exit our parking lots as easily as possible and to minimize customer confusion during this process,” said Terry Hart, airport president.

The Airport Authority is replacing all parking equipment including ticket dispensers, pay machines inside the terminal and at the exit lanes, exit gates and gate arms. The new machines dispense a different style of parking ticket that is not compatible with the old parking equipment. Customers with the old ticket style will need to speak with the parking attendant at the booth for assistance exiting the parking lots.

The equipment replacement will be completed in phases beginning in the intermediate parking lot. The entire project will take several weeks to finish.

“This project is going to make parking at the airport much more convenient for our customers with upgraded equipment and a mobile pay option,” Hart said. “We know our customers will be pleased with the ease of use associated with the new equipment.”
