Short Term (Ground Level)

Convenient for Dropping Off and Picking Up

  • Short term parking lots directly across from each Terminal
  • No overnight parking
  • See daily rate structure below

For security reasons, curbside parking is currently prohibited at Philadelphia International Airport. But that doesn’t mean you have to circle the airport while you wait for an arriving flight, or wave your goodbyes from the car outside of departures. Reasonably priced, convenient ground level parking is available directly across from the baggage claim areas.

The lots are easy in — and easy out, too, because we have a large, convenient toll plaza. When you don’t have to wait in line to pay, you get back on the road that much sooner!
