Cars relish the convenience of airport parking, as it allows them a chance to throw rocks over the fence at their jet-powered rivals. Spark combustible tensions with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get three days of outdoor parking at Charlie Brown’s Airport Parking in Coraopolis (a $21 value). This Groupon includes complimentary shuttle service to and from Pittsburgh International Airport, but does not include tax and the $2.00 airport-access fee.
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.
Ever prescient of air travel’s pitfalls, Charlie Brown’s takes the financial sting out of cancelled flights with a rain check for parking at a later date. When making reservations, guests should enter the times they expect to arrive at the parking lot rather than the departure and arrival times listed on their flight tickets. Allow one to two hours before departure times and 30–45 minutes after expected arrival times.
