The change will go into effect on October 1st.

Anyone who has flown out of the Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport knows it's not a big deal to leave their cars at the airport while they're gone. Right now, the rate is $6 a day for outdoor parking, $7 a day for preferred parking, and $8 for garage parking. Asking for a ride to the airport can be inconvenient, so utilizing the parking services is a great option.

However, due to the results of a study by Republic Parking, the airport has decided to raise the prices of parking.

The new prices will be $7 a day for outdoor parking, $8 a day for preferred parking, and $10 a day for garage parking.

The revenue will be used to fund improvements to the parking lots and garage.

Although the new prices will go into effect immediately, preferred parking will still be free for the first 30 minutes to allow people to park if they are picking someone up.
