You can access this parking area via Highway 99 / International Blvd. from the north or south. To access the parking area from SR 518, follow the signs marked "Overheight Parking" from the left exit off the Airport Expressway. The route is well marked and will take you to Highway 99 / International Blvd and the South 182nd St. airport entrance.
  • Enter the airport from South 182nd St. off of Highway 99 / International Blvd. and make your way into the left lane.
  • Stay in the left lane and curve to the left, then follow the signs to over-height parking (which at this point should be in front of you and to the right).
  • After the gate opens, drive in and park in any of the 60-plus stalls in the outdoor area. It is within walking distance to the terminal.
  • General parking rates apply.

The airport drives are for passenger drop-off and pick-up only.
