Airport parking aggregator ParkVia has won a competitive tender for Dortmund Airport 21 that will see the airport’s parking products delivered across the global ParkVia network.
The initial agreement allows ParkVia’s 4 million customer base to book both multi-storey and outdoor parking spaces at the growing airport.
Crucially, the deal will also see the parking spaces surfaced on partner websites including the rapidly expanding Eastern European giant Wizz Air – allowing the airport to secure parking bookings at the same time as the customer books their flights.
Speaking of the collaboration, Jörg Adolphs, Non-Aviation Area Manager for Dortmund Airport 21, said; “This new digital path-to-purchase further enhances our passengers’ experience by allowing them to book on their platform of choice at a time that is convenient. Being able to integrate with airlines increases booking lead times allowing us to better manage our parking service monetization.”
ParkVia’s Head of Strategic Accounts, Ilaria Vacca, said of the deal; “Dortmund Airport 21 is an important part of the North Rhine-Westphalia infrastructure and we are delighted to have won this competitive tender. Our hope is that this new collaboration will enhance the airport’s already excellent experience by allowing passengers to pre-plan more of their journey.”
Dortmund Airport 21 car parks go live on the ParkVia network as of April 2020.
