EL PASO -

The El Paso International Airport is adjusting some of its parking fees, and introducing a new free lot where people can wait to pick up arriving passengers.

The new free lot in on Piper Court, between the Raddison Hotel and the long-term parking lot.  People waiting to pick up an arriving passenger can wait free of charge to receive a mobile phone call from a person who has arrived and picked up baggage.  

The driver must remain with the vehicle at all times.

To improve customer service, the Airport is changing all parking fees to even dollar amounts.  The maximum daily rates will remain the same: $10 for short-term parking and $5 for long-term parking.

The new lot is already open and the new fee structure is in effect.
