Online Airport Parking Reservation Service Approaches One Million Mark

SUFFIELD, CT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 30, 2007 -- If you were to park one million cars end to end, how much room would you need? According to Tom Lombardi, the line would stretch from New York City to Los Angeles. And as president of AirportParkingReservations.com, Lombardi should know -- because his company is about to book its millionth online airport parking reservation sometime this month.

AirportParkingReservations.com began accepting guaranteed reservations -- with the payment of an online deposit -- three and a half years ago. Today travelers can reserve a space at over 200 parking lots located at more then 65 U.S. and Canadian airports.

"When I first spoke to parking lot owners about making reservations online, they thought I was crazy. Who would go to the Internet to book parking?" Lombardi recalls. With a background in travel agency sales and airport parking marketing, he knew that travelers would be happy to reserve parking at the airport if given the proper delivery system. The Internet, he realized, would allow for the consolidation of the independent parking lots and provide the means to issue a confirmation as proof of a guaranteed parking reservation.

Pete Carrea, owner of Winner Parking in Philadelphia, was one of the first to sign on. "I jumped at the idea of attracting new customers through the Internet and AirportParkingReservations.com delivered from day one," he says. "If you're online researching airport parking, you obviously don't know where to park. So it's no surprise that AirportParkingReservations.com is my single biggest source of new customers."

Many of the lots listed on AirportParkingReservations.com offer options for self-parking, valet and/or covered parking. Some even offer an array of car care services, including car wash, detailing and oil change. And all the lots listed provide luggage assistance along with free shuttle service to and from every terminal.

"Our customers repeatedly tell us how thrilled they are to be able to both save money and avoid the stress and inconvenience of driving around searching for a parking space at the airport," says Lombardi. "In fact, I suspect it won't be long before we announce our two millionth reservation."
