Cairo International Airport raises parking fees by 100%
Cairo International Airport increased parking fees on Monday by 100 percent. The Cairo Port Authority, which manages the entrance gates at Cairo airport’s parking lots, said that different rates will be applied according to the category of vehicles.
Parking fees for taxis and privately owned cars have been set at 20 pounds for the first three hours and 10 pounds for each subsequent hour. Parking fees for a full day have been set at 100 pounds.
For microbuses and pickup trucks, fees have been set at 30 pounds for the first three hours and 15 pounds for each subsequent hour, while buses and transport vehicles will be charged 30 pounds for the first three hours and 20 pounds for each subsequent hour.
Trucks and the semi-trailers will pay 60 pounds the first three hours and 30 pounds for each subsequent hour.
The increase does not apply to airport employees and workers with affiliated companies, the port authority said.
In 2016, parking fees at Cairo airport witnessed their first increase in nine years from 5 to 10 pounds.
The port authority said that the new increase is due to renovations, maintenance and services newly installed at airport gates, which cost around 60 million pounds.
