New Valet Parking comes with online reservations and options for car wash services
HOUSTON, December 3, 2012—Houston’s second largest commercial airport is famous for giving customers something to smile about with its low fares, close location to downtown and easy layout to navigate – now there’s one more thing to make customers happy—Valet Parking. Effective immediately, passengers departing from William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) can leave the parking to others with a new Valet Parking program.
This is the second location of the Valet Parking program, as it began at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) in June, 2012. The Houston Airport System (HAS) is offering customers a $20 introductory price through January 7, 2013 at both IAH and HOU Valet Parking locations.
“As the fourth largest city in the United States, Houston continues to lead the nation for economic growth and Hobby Airport is benefitting with more passengers—which is why we want to offer a premium service such as valet parking to elevate the customer experience,” said Mario C. Diaz, director of aviation for Houston Airports. “We are also adding in value by including a free copy of USA Today and a complimentary bottle of water.”
To make the process even more convenient, Houston airports offer online reservations to reserve Valet Parking spots. Customers can create an account and/or fill out information online, print out the form and hand it to the attendant for faster service.
Meanwhile, Valet Parking customers can choose an extra Valet Parking perk – SUDS Valet Car Care services that include four premium packages for car wash and detailing services.
Customers who seek the Valet Parking services will find the valet drop-off location and booth in the Hobby Airport parking garage by following Valet Parking signage.
HAS partnered with New South Parking, a division of Standard/Central Parking and USA Parking System, a 30-year, hospitality-industry veteran. USA Parking System specializes in the management of high-end, service-oriented parking facilities, with a mission to “deliver Five Diamond services every day.”
For customers who wish to continue to self-park at Hobby Airport, HAS improved customer service with the addition of courtesy shuttles for ecopark 2 that transport customers to/from the terminal on 11-passenger shuttles. The courtesy shuttles are available to help handle luggage, find their vehicles when returning, and assist with vehicle services, such as flat tires and dead batteries. Additional parking is also available in the parking garage and ecopark 1.
