Palmerston North Airport Announces Adjustment in Car Parking Prices and Introduction of Blackout Periods for Early Bird Rates Effective 1 July 2024

Palmerston North Airport today announced changes to its car parking pricing structure.

Effective 1 July 2024, customers will notice an average increase of 5% on tariffs in both the General and Long Stay Car Parks. The price adjustment reflects the rising costs of facility maintenance and technological upgrades required to maintain high service standards.

The introduction of blackout periods for Early Bird pricing within the Long Stay carpark aims to better manage parking demand during peak periods, ensuring availability in the Long Stay Car Park for all customers. Blackout periods will be in effect during peak times including the Christmas (22 December 2024 – 5 January 2025) and Easter periods (16 – 30 April 2025). During these Blackout periods, customers will still be able to book into the Long Stay Car Park, however standard tariffs will apply to all parkers.
