"Wr ctting prkng fees!"
Frankfurt-Hahn Airport is to slash its parking fees in time for the start of the summer holidays. From 10th July it will only cost €2.50 a day to park in P7 instead of the present €7.00. Cars can be left there for an entire week for just €17.50 (instead of €30.00). The shuttle bus will continue to take passengers to the terminal free of charge. The fee for use of the short-term car park P0 right outside the terminal building will also be reduced from €60.00 to €18.00 a day.
With other airports putting up their fees for parking, the low-cost airport Frankfurt-Hahn remains true to its motto of "Park cheap. Fly cheap". "Cologne-Bonn Airport is trying to compensate for its drop in income due to fewer passengers by raising its parking fees. This March it pushed prices up again. We believe that expensive parking just doesn't go with cheap flights. We want flying from Hahn to stay attractive even when in real terms wages and salaries are dropping. We'll be cutting our parking fees", explains Jörg Schumacher, spokesman for the executive board of Flughafen Frankfurt-Hahn GmbH. The timing is deliberate. Families off on their summer holidays will profit from the low tariffs.
With its new prices Hahn Airport is practically the cheapest of them all. "Only Zweibrücken is cheaper than us. All other German airports are much more expensive. At Cologne/Bonn, for example, in the cheapest car park you pay €18.00 for the first day. That's almost as much as Frankfurt. At Hahn you pay just €17.50 for a whole week! Even parking with so-called cut-price operators off the airport premises is dearer – and much more inconvenient", says Jörg Schumacher.
Parking spaces can be booked in advance on the airport website, enabling passengers to secure themselves one of the cheapest parking spaces in P7. P7 has 3,500 spaces. More information on car park locations and prices and on methods of payment can be found on the Internet at www.hahn-airport.de.
