It's a busy week for Spokane International Airport, rumor has it a major holiday is happening later this week. Some 16,000+ inbound and outbound seats a day are anticipated to be going through the airport all this week. Meaning longer lines at ticketing and TSA, but maybe not as bad for finding a place to park as Spokane International earlier this week opened the newly expanded surface parking lot for the C Concourse.
As part of a $5 million project Spokane International Airport added 460 new parking spaces, with the lot now offering a capacity of 991 total parking spaces or more than double its original capacity. The lot also offers 29 ADA-designated parking stalls along with six planned electric vehicle charging stalls. The lot also now has new pavement and LED lighting. The project was designed by engineering firm Kimley-Horn Associates and constructed by Corridor Contractors,LLC.
The current rate to park in the C Concourse lot is $8 per day. Elsewhere on Airport property are 2,600 garage spaces, 2,150 outside lot spaces and 3,240 economy parking spaces. Spokane International Airport is a major player in the economy of the Spokane region providing employment for over 3,000 and annual direct and indirect economic impact of $3 billion.
The Airport is also continuing on with it's TREX project, a $150 million expansion that will add 144,000 square feet of space to the existing C Concourse, adding new gates and ticketing counters, that project is currently expected to be complete in 2025. They are also always actively seeking out new flight destinations, announcing a new seasonal direct Southwest Airlines to Dallas Love Field just last month. That flight is set to begin in June of 2024.
