ACS exclusive role in Newcastle Airport Parking

ACS will have an exclusive role in Newcastle Airport's future parking plans including the introduction of licence plate recognition (LPR) for pre-booked customers later this year (2007).
The airport, which provides 6000 long and short-term spaces across two main sites, has increased it parking capacity by 90 per cent in the last five years.

Equipment supplied and serviced by the Camberley-based company over the past decade will be progressively replaced starting with 24 electronic barriers followed by new ticketing machines.

The impetus follows a reappraisal of the entire parking operation which is now being managed in-house.

Four new pay stations in two pairs at either end of the terminal building for domestic and international passengers have recently been installed.

Two further PoF pay station located undercover by the Drop Off car park are also up and running.

ACS will upgrade the intire intercom system linking ticketing machines and pay stations to a central control point.

Speaking for airport parking management Eric Wrightson said pay-on-foot supported the customers' requirement for flexible parking charges. It integrated with the growing customer preference for pre-book parking via the airport's web site and call centre.
