Q-Park and Hermes introduced the 'smart mobility' concept Park+Fly Eindhoven on October 1st. Holidaymakers and business travelers park their car at Q-Park Meerhoven located under Meerhoven Shopping Center, on the Meerzand in Eindhoven, and from there then it is a few minutes travel time with the Hermes-401 bus to Eindhoven Airport.
By buying a combined ticket for the bus journey and a parking place in advance, passengers can be assured of a good price. With prices starting from 3.52 euros per day, it is one of the cheapest parking options around the airport.
Hermes buses stop every ten to fifteen minutes during the day at the Meerrijk stop (150 meters away from Q-Park Meerhoven) and bring the traveler to Eindhoven Airport within eight minutes. "Thanks to this cooperation, travelers can easily book a parking space with a guaranteed fast transfer to the airport", explains Dorothé Wennekendonk, Manager Commerce at Hermes. "This will improve the accessibility of Eindhoven Airport. Moreover, it is also a sustainable solution."
"Our customers are increasingly combining different forms of transport to travel from A to B", says Mariëlle Velthoven, Head of Sales & Marketing at Q-Park Netherlands. "High-quality parking locations are more commonly becoming mobility hubs. They are not only an end point, but also a starting point for the rest of the journey and are part of the travel experience. With this in mind, Q-Park is working together more with other mobility providers. We form one integral chain, where the unburdening of travelers is central. Park+Fly is a good example of this."
Q-Park Meerhoven is located in the Meerhoven shopping center, at Meerzand 1, and has 1,736 parking spaces. This Park+Fly location offers many benefits to its guests. The shopping center has a wide range of shops and catering establishments that travelers can use before departure and after arrival. The Park+Fly tickets can easily be booked via q-park.nl/parkenfly.
