SRQ AIRPORT OFFERS NEW SHADED PARKING LOT TO THE PUBLIC

Today, the Sarasota Manatee Airport Authority (SMAA) announced the opening of the recently
constructed outdoor shaded parking lot at the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) to
the public. The parking lot is located on the east side of the terminal and provides shaded parking
spaces for about 300 vehicles. The parking rate in the shaded parking lot will be the same as shortterm
parking rates at SRQ (daily maximum $15).

The new lot has an automated exit which will only accept credit cards as payment, and will not
utilize staffed exit booths. People entering the lot will take a ticket and use a credit card when
exiting. An intercom system will be available in case of an emergency. Signage to the covered
parking lot was installed on Airport Circle. Customers will have to turn right onto a one-way street
leading to the new parking facility before reaching the terminal building.

Vehicles dropped off for Valet Parking service are also parked in the covered parking facility.
Valet Parking is available for $18 maximum per day. The valet parking attendant is located at the
terminal’s main overhang at curb side, immediately following the airlines’ ticket wing.
