The Ottawa International Airport Authority is pleased to announce a number of facility upgrades and experience enhancements for passengers and visitors.

The Airport Authority has launched a new web-based parking reservation and management system, ParkspaceTM. This system is fully integrated with the airport’s existing parking management and access control system, and allows customers to reserve and pay for their parking through the Ottawa Airport’s website. The new online system provides customers with a more convenient way to purchase parking in advance of their travels, while also offering the peace of mind of a guaranteed parking space.

In addition to the new online service, the Airport Authority is also pleased to announce the opening of a new free Cell Phone Parking lot. This lot provides a convenient location where drivers can wait until they receive an “I’m here” mobile message before proceeding to the arrivals curb to pick up an arriving passenger. Users can now wait in this lot for up to 30 minutes at no charge. The lot is conveniently located in a section of the existing Long Term lot, less than 1 km from the main terminal.

 “Customer service has always been one of the Airport Authority’s key priorities, and we consistently strive for continuous improvement,” said Mark Laroche, Airport Authority President and CEO. “Making parking and passenger pick-up easier and more convenient helps us achieve our goals in this area, and once again raises the bar where providing excellent service is concerned.”
