It's been all over the news that Spokane International Airport has experienced exponential passenger growth. Several new flights have begun / we're announced to connect Spokane with several new destinations. Major renovation projects are on the horizon for as soon as next year but some are coming sooner, like the new large expansion of the economy parking area.
Site work has begun for a new economy parking area with a total of 1300 new parking spaces. The project is estimated to cost $6.44 million and will be located on the vacant lots at the corner of Airport Dr. ( in-bound lanes ) and Flint Rd. This is across from the cell phone parking area which itself was expanded not long ago. This new parking area should open in mid-November.
It should be noted that a section of the existing "outside parking area" will be taken away soon as a new 111 room Marriott Springhill Suites is planned in-between the main terminal and the Ramada hotel. We'll have more on that very soon hopefully.
