TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) - By a unanimous vote, the Hillsborough Aviation Authority Board has approved a parking rate hike for Tampa International Airport.
It's the first airport parking rate increase since 2007.
The first hour will remain free, but the new plan doubles the rate to $6 an hour after that. Parking in the long-term parking garage goes up one dollar to $16 a day.
The rate increase is expected to generate an extra million dollars in revenue for the airport.
The new rates take effect October first.
