New Economy Parking Lot Opens at Jacksonville International Airport (JAX)

Permanent Lot Will Provide Relief in Time for July 4th Holiday  A third economy parking lot is now open at Jacksonville International Airport (JAX).
Previously only utilized during Thanksgiving and Christmas, it will now be available year-round. Economy Lot #3 includes 800 parking spaces for travelers and can be accessed via Pecan Park Road. It is situated between Economy Lot #1 and Pet Paradise. The airport will provide complimentary 24/7 shuttle service to the terminal. Travelers who park in the lot are charged a rate of $8 per day.
Opening in time for July 4th weekend, the new parking lot will help support the seasonal influx of travelers, as well as the increasingly large number of people who fly out of JAX each month. May 2024 was the busiest month in airport history, and this high volume of traffic is expected to continue throughout the summer.
“The need for additional parking options is a significant indicator of our continued growth,” said Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) CEO Mark VanLoh. “The permanent opening of Economy Lot #3 is just one of the parking-related accommodations planned over the next several years.”
Construction on approximately 287 new spaces in Economy Lot #1 is currently underway, with it expected to be complete by August 2024. A third parking garage consisting of approximately 2,000 spaces is set to break ground later this year. It will include changes to the rental car pickup and drop-off area, which will reduce traffic near the terminal. Construction is estimated to be complete on the garage in late 2026.
Travelers are encouraged to keep the following tips in mind when they fly:
  • Arrive at least two hours prior to departure time to ensure ample time to find parking, check bags, and clear security.
  • Check real-time parking availability on the JAX Airport Website, the @JAXAirport X account, and Airport Road signage.
  • If parking has reached full capacity, consider nearby off-airport parking options (Park EZ Fly, USA Park, WallyPark, etc.) or alternative forms of transportation to the airport such as taxi or rideshare services.
  • Firearms and ammunition are prohibited in carry-on luggage. Browse Transportation Security Administration (TSA) guidelines to avoid packing any prohibited items.
