The cost to park at Kansas City International Airport will go up May 1, at least for customers who park at the airport for several hours.
KCI officials said the daily maximum rate for garage parking will rise to $23, a $1 increase. The daily maximum for circle parking will go to $15.50, and economy spaces will rise to $7.50. Both are 50-cent increases.
Hourly rates won’t increase. Those rates are $1 for the first 30 minutes and $3 per hour, up to the daily maximum. The cost for valet parking remains the same.
The increases don’t directly affect the cost to park at private lots near the airport.
The airport said that the increases are the first since 2012 and that the cost to park at KCI is comparable to other midsize airports.
