A GCC-based airport tops the list at nearly US$300 per week
Newly released research from Driver Education platform Zutobi has compared parking prices across the world’s busiest airports to reveal which has the most expensive and cheapest parking rates for a week’s stay.
The most expensive airport for long-term parking is Hamad International Airport, the principal airport in Doha, Qatar. Parking here for a whole week will cost you at least US$278.77. This is US$263 more than the cheapest airport in the study.
Serving more than 27 million passengers a year, the second most expensive airport is London Stansted Airport at US$264, followed by Abu Dhabi International Airport where parking for a week will set you back US$229.
With the rising cost of living – and holidays – its no wonder that GCC travellers are booking more trips to Turkey and Thailand – both affordable destinations, and this extends to airport parking fees.
The airport with the lowest daily parking rate is Sabiha Gökçen Airport in Istanbul, where a full week’s parking can cost as little as US$16. Staying in the city, Istanbul’s Atatürk Airport, is the second cheapest at US$20.
Taking third place is Suvarnabhumi Airport, one of the biggest airports in South East Asia and one of two airports serving Bangkok. The airport charges a minimum of US$29 for a week’s parking.
