The attentive staff at Charlie Brown’s Airport Parking watches after visiting automobiles in a fenced and secure lot located within a half-second flight of Pittsburgh International Airport’s runways. Upon arriving, car owners surrender their metallic steeds to seasoned valets before confirming their online reservations with a courteous host at the front desk. Cars are left to bask in the sunlight of an outdoor space, and an on-demand shuttle with complimentary luggage assistance whisks passengers away to nearby airport terminals. Only 15 minutes elapse between check-in at the lot and arrival at the terminal, allowing guests plenty of time to wait in security lines or double-check if their sunscreen and inflatable palm trees are packed.
