Major improvements to Juneau International Airport parking coming in summer 2023

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Major improvements to the Juneau International Airport parking lots will take place during the summer of 2023. Work will affect all four lots—Long-Term, Short-Term, Rental Car and Employee—and will begin in May. Improvements include work on curbs, repaving, lighting and draining, as well as the implementation of a new payment system.

    The Long-Term Lot will be temporarily relocated for the duration of construction and Short-Term, Taxi Staging, and Rental Car parking will be relocated for shorter periods at various times during construction.

    During the busy summer season, the Airport anticipates parking will be very tight and at times all lots will be completely full. Passengers are encouraged to seek rides or use ground transportation options—taxis, rideshares, or public transit—whenever possible to ease parking congestion and ensure safe and smooth travel.

    Long-Term Lot Construction

    A temporary long-term parking area opened May 19 north of the terminal. Follow detour signs to the north of the terminal, on the ramp side (right side) approaching from Shell Simmons Drive. The permanent Long-Term Lot will close May 31. Travelers departing in May and returning after May 31 should park in the temporary lot.

    Parking in the temporary long-term lot will be limited to a maximum of 14 days for the duration of construction. Overstay vehicles will be subject to tow and impound at the owner’s expense.

    New Parking Payment System

    Beginning in June, airport parking payment will transition to a prepay system. Passengers will have the option of paying at kiosks located in the lots or via the REEF Mobile smartphone app. Download the app for Apple or Android or search for REEF Mobile in your smartphone’s app store.
    Please note that under the prepay system, passengers must pay for parking before their stay in the lot—whether it is a short visit to the terminal or an overnight trip.

    Short-Term Lot Construction

    The Short-Term Lot is expected to remain unchanged until mid-June, when the existing payment system will be replaced. The short-term parking area will also be temporarily relocated for a short time during the later stages of construction. Please be alert for detour signs.
