Avalon slashes airport parking fees

By Alesha Capone

Avalon Airport has announced that it will slash its parking fees by 25 per cent across all short term and long term parking areas for the next two months.

The news comes after Melbourne Airport raised fees by up to 25 per cent for some of its parking spaces, including 400 bays on level one of the T123 park.

Avalon’s chief executive Justin Giddings said: “Flying via Avalon Airport already means cheaper parking in addition to cheaper fares, but we wanted to lower our prices even further for all Victorians to remove the added concern of massive parking fees.

“There are many great, but unknown benefits that come with flying at Avalon Airport. Not only is parking cheaper, it’s also more convenient.

“All parking – both long term and short term – are located right outside the terminals, just metres away from check-in.”

Avalon’s executive chairman, David Fox, said: “Avalon Airport is proudly Australian-owned. We are Victorians for Victorians. Our biggest priority is to provide holiday-goers with a much easier and cheaper option to travel both internationally and interstate.”

Avalon’s new parking offer coincides with its commencement of daily flights to Bali with Citilink Indonesia, with the first flight touching down in Bali last weekend.

In addition to daily flights to Bali, Avalon offers are twice daily flights to Kuala Lumpur via AirAsia and daily Jetstar flights to Sydney, Gold Coast and Adelaide.

Avalon Airport’s 25 per cent off parking offer commences will start today  and concludes at midnight on Tuesday, March 31. To receive the discount drivers will need to exit the car park during that period.
