Jacksonville Airport parking
JAX offers on-site parking at several garages and lots arranged around the airport property with short-term, long-term and valet options available. As a complimentary service to all travelers, the airport provides flat battery assistance, flat tire inflation and help locating your car if you can't find it.
Dropping off and picking up
There are drop-off and pick-up points immediately outside the terminals, but cars cannot be parked or left here. If you want to see people off at departures, you'll need to park in the hourly garage right next to the main terminal area.
If you're picking people up from arrivals and aren't sure when they'll have been through baggage reclaim, you can wait in the free cell phone lot until they call from outside arrivals.
The daily garage can be used to park your own car if you're only going on a short weekend or business trip. The uncovered lot is convenient for terminal access, since it’s within walking distance of the entrance.
Two economy lots are also located on-site, but they are a little further from the terminal areas. Free 24-hour shuttle buses are provided to make this the most cost-effective parking option at the airport.
It’s possible to leave your car in a specific valet area just outside the terminal to have staff park it for you, so you don’t have to carry keys around on your trip. They’ll also have it waiting for you at your return terminal when you get back.
Premier Parking is a pre-paid scheme for regular travelers. You pay a set fee in advance for a number of benefits, including a guaranteed space at a special Premier-only lot next to the terminal, a preferred TSA lane and full rights to share your account with friends, family and colleagues.
Frequent Parker Program
The Frequent Parker Program is similarly designed for regular fliers, but works with a special JAXPassport that gets logged when you arrive and leave to automatically charge parking fees to your credit card. It's a useful time-saver if you're in a hurry and it has the bonus of a points system that gives you free days of parking at certain milestones of use.
Off-site airport parking lots
You can find several off-site parking options at Jacksonville International Airport, too. Lots based a short distance from the airport property connect to the terminals with complimentary shuttle buses to provide a ‘park and ride’ service for passengers. It adds some travel time to your journey, but it can save you money.
Many of these lots will also provide a valet parking service, whereby the staff will meet you at your terminal, park for you and, similarly to the on-site parking option, bring it back to your terminal upon your return.
