Redmond Municipal Airport Prepares for Increased Summer Travel - 71 New Paid Parking Spots Added

Due to the upcoming holiday weekend and new summer flight additions, Redmond Municipal Airport(RDM) has added 71 new paid parking spaces to expand parking availability. RDM also encourages travelers to consider using alternative transportation options in lieu of using the paid parking lot. Those options include, but are not limited to TNC and ride sharing, ground transportation services such as taxi service and vehicles for hire, recruiting friends or family for a ride, or other off Airport overnight parking in legal areas.

Paid parking rates at RDM:
· $1.00 for first 30 minutes
· 31 plus minutes is $2.00 per hour
· Maximum is $10.00 per day
· 7th day of consecutive parking is free
· Additional parking information for trailers and motorcycles can be found online at www.flyrdm.com

The curb at the front of the Airport Terminal is for active loading and unloading only. Vehicles are not permitted to wait at the curb. The Rental Car lot is for rental cars only. Private vehicles are not authorized to enter the Rental Car lot. Curb, Parking, and Rental Car lot violations are subject to a $50.00 citation. The approved waiting area is the Cell Phone Waiting area, located across the street from the Airport along SW Salmon Avenue.

The increased holiday traffic will likely cause longer check-in lines and passengers are encouraged to arrive 90 minutes (1 hour and 30 minutes) prior to departure time to clear through the TSA screening process. Summer is a busy season for hunting and fishing and TSA would like to remind passengers to check all baggage for loose ammunition and other related items prior to travel.

RDM’s boarding lounge amenities include a children’s play area, a coffee shop, and Avalon Aeropub, a family friendly restaurant and full-service bar open daily at10:00 A.M.
