REDMOND, OR -- As the holiday season approaches, more people will be using the Redmond Airport to travel, and parking their cars for long periods could lead to a parking shortage.
Bass says more people travel during the holidays, which can make for longer wait times and some frustration. "What we're seeing, and what we have seen for the last few years, is pretty exponential growth each year and when we built the terminal and we built the parking lot about ten years ago, we built for growth, but we're starting to see that we're meeting that capacity. We are expecting or anticipating to run out of parking spots."
Bass is also suggesting travelers arrive at the Redmond Airport two hours before their scheduled flight during the holiday season, instead of the more typical hour and an half.
