Tri-Cities Airport Parking Rates to Increase

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash., -- Starting July 1st, parking at the Tri-Cities Airport in Pasco will cost you a little more.

The short term parking rates will increase from $1.25 an hour to $1.50 and from $9 to $12 for the daily maximum.

 Long term parking rates will jump from $7 to $9 dollars a day.

Airport officials say the rate increase will go toward expanding the security check point screening area to help reduce the wait time for passengers.

Short term parking under 25 minutes will still remain free of charge.

This is the first time rates have increased since 2005.
