Airport parking rates are going up

Parking rates at Charlotte International Airport will increase next month for remote and long-term parking.

Starting Sept. 15, cost for the remote lots increase to $1 an hour, with a maximum of $6 a day. That's up from $3 for 24 hours. Long-term parking increases to $4 for 24-hours, up from $3.

Officials said the rate increase is to regulate demand. The current price of the remote lot is unbalanced in comparison with the price of the long-term lots.

Cost for the other lots remain the same.
