Park n' Jet going out of business, property to be converted

One of only two off site airport parking facilities at Spokane International Airport , Park n' Jet, has announced they are going out of business. The facility is closing largely due to stiff competition of the Airports own parking lots, which includes the promoted North Shuttle Lot which features parking with shuttle to the terminal for only $4 a day.

Park n' Jet ( 5602 W. Sunset Hwy. ) offered competitive ( yet higher ) parking rates with extra touches like bottled waters and newspapers included in the cost of parking. But the additional price, distance to the Airport and increased fees charged by Airport to Park n' Jet have taken a hard hit on the company's business. The facility is operated as a division of Diamond Parking Service who also owns the neighboring self storage facility.

In the coming months the self storage business will expand onto the land used for parking . That business, which is called Diamond Storage also recently built a group of new storage units on the west side of the site. With the new business direction they also claim to be hoping to include new storage options.

Park n' Jet has stopped taking in cars for parking effective immediately but will continue in some operation till the end of September. Employees of Park n' Jet will be laid off, at closing the business employed about 25. This closure effects only the Park n' Jet Airport Parking site and airport parking is still available on multiple on lots owned by Spokane International Airport surrounding the Terminal .

Also there is still an off site parking option at Spotted Road Parking Express at 1610 S. Spotted Rd. Their facility, while smaller then Park n' Ride's has many positive reviews online and offers low rates and shuttle service to and from the Terminal.
