Airport car parking Order is made The new car park Order for Isle of Man Airport will come into effect during August, and a public notice advertising this fact will be in the Manx Independent on Friday 9th August.
Back in July, after a lengthy consideration of public comment and a meeting with TravelWatch, the Minister of Infrastructure reviewed the original proposal of charging for the first hour of car parking at Isle of Man Airport, and determined to retain a 30 minute free period.
Minister of Infrastructure David Cretney MHK said "I believe that having a 30 minute free period takes note of the public comments and responds in a positive way. We will also re-instate a conveniently placed disc zone within the short stay car park, for genuine short term users, so that meeters and greeters or those with mobility issues can park near the Terminal and collect their passengers and luggage, and depart within the 30 minute period."
A) There will be a period of up to 30 minutes free parking in both the short stay and long stay car parks
B) The charges for the car parks, for brief periods of parking will be:-
Short Stay 0 - 30mins Free / 31mins - 1hr £1.00 /1hr - 2hr £1.50 / 2hr - 4Hr £2.50
Long Stay 0 - 30 mins Free / 31 mins -2hr £1.00 / 2hr - 4hr £2.00
C) There will be no change to the daily rates or subsequent day rates for short or long stay.
D) There will be no change for the parking for disabled visitors and passengers, and the current disabled parking nearest to the Terminal (adjacent to the hire cars) which is currently used for free up to one hour, will continue for disabled users free of charge.
In closing, the Minister said "I hope that this decision will be met with satisfaction by most people”.
