George Best Belfast City Airport offers best parking solution with Chauntry

The Chauntry Corporation Ltd has helped unlock the best parking
prices at George Best Belfast City Airport by implementing its online
pre-booking solution, Chauntry Parkspace
With approximately 2.6 million passengers passing through the terminal each year, George Best Airport was the only UK airport to record an increase in passengers during 2009. During this time, the airport operated a parking reservations system for the long stay car park developed by a local supplier. Keen to expand on this initial solution and increase the range of car parks and parking products offered to passengers via its website, the airport looked for a more adaptable solution that could meet the needs of the parking operation and allow it to be more creative with pricing and promotions. The airport also wanted to offer its customers more self-service capability with the option to manage their own bookings online.

An important factor in the selection process was the ability to set different tariffs for different parking products. This would allow the airport to provide flexible (fully amendable) and non-flexible (no changes or cancellations) parking products at different rates to meet market needs. With business passengers making up the largest percentage of the airports market, the ability to pre-book the new Fast Track Car Park (with wifi and security fast track) was essential. The Chauntry solution allows the airport to offer a range of parking products with yield pricing appropriate to demand and has the added functionality for customers to make changes without having to call the airport.

Theresa Hughes, Managing Director Chauntry Corporation Ltd., says George Best Belfast City Airport is an excellent example of what can be achieved with focus on the right areas of the business. The airport has achieved phenomenal growth in recent years and clearly understands the needs of its passengers. Chauntrys ability to provide a solution that enables the airport to meet these needs today, whilst investing in technologies of the future, ensures George Best Airport is best placed to build on its commercial success.

Judith Davis, Car Park Manager at the George Best Belfast City Airport, says It was essential to us that we work with an established company that understood the needs of an airport parking operation and could offer a reliable solution but with the flexibility we needed.

Our parking prices remain amongst the most competitive in the UK and Ireland and we wanted to add value on top of that. The Chauntry solution allows us to do that easily and our customers remain very happy.
