Parking Improvements at the Airports

September 28, 2012

Improvements to the HAS parking operations include both a car wash service and available valet parking.
The Houston Airport System (HAS) is always looking for ways to improve services and amenities at both George Bush Intercontinental (IAH) and William P. Hobby (HOU) Airports. Customers have seen and will continue to see improvements at the parking facilities at both airports including, but not limited to:

Parking Ambassadors

Recently, HAS received 11-passenger Courtesy Shuttles, in which Parking Ambassadors pick up travelers in the parking garages at IAH and drive them and their luggage to the elevators.

These same shuttles are used at the Hobby Airport ecopark 2 lot, to take customers to/from the terminal. Ambassadors have been useful to customers in other ways as well including: loading and unloading luggage for senior citizens and parents traveling with small children; passengers that can’t find their vehicles; and calling for help to jump start dead car batteries.

Portable Car Wash Now Available at IAH

IAH now offers an environmentally safe car wash service at ecopark. SUDS Hand Car Wash cleans vehicles a few hours before customers return to Houston. Customers simply talk to the SUDS Sales Associate and make the appointment. Using a high-pressure nozzle that turns water into a near vapor, only the exterior of the car is cleaned, so there is no need to leave your keys behind. SUDS is coming to HOU by the end of the year.

Time-Saving Valet

IAH now offers valet parking that allows customers to drive into a reception area and drop off their keys. Customers must provide return flight information at check-in, to ensure that their vehicle will be waiting for them at the reception area as soon as they return to IAH. Valet is $25 a day, compared to $17 a day to park in the terminal garage. Valet parking will be introduced to HOU this fall. For more information on valet parking at IAH, visit
