CRASH AND BURN: Fort Lauderdale Airport To Eliminate Cheap Parking

Reservation system still advertised, doesn't exist

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL ( — Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport continues its death spiral into one of the nation’s least customer-friendly airports with its latest announcement that all “cheap” parking will be eliminated by late Spring.

The airport announced that its popular off-site economy parking will be converted to employee parking in May. Employee parking — currently occupying 3100 spots on the roof of the Cypress garage — will become available to the general public for the current on-site parking price of $15/day. Valet parking remains $25/day.

The announcement comes as the airport is now years behind re-opening the pedestrian crosswalks which have been inexplicably closed for what the airport calls “a public art project.” Passengers daily risk death as they attempt to run — with bags — from airport terminals to parking garages while BSO’s traffic deputies routinely do nothing as cars whiz by on the airport’s main road.

An airport spokesperson claimed — on 610WIOD in November — that the crosswalks would be open by the end of 2016.

The airport’s heavily promoted “reserved parking” space program remains the equivalent of “vapor ware” — or, in present-day political terms, a “Trumpian truth.” It’s been advertised with signage for two years but doesn’t exist.

Lying liars? Fort Lauderdale airport has promoted its reserved parking system for two years, yet it doesn’t exist.

Does Broward County Aviation need a senior management change?
