COLUMBIA, SC – Pre-book and save on the spot. Columbia Metropolitan Airport (CAE hereafter) launched a new, online parking system that allows travelers the option to pre-book parking in either surface or garage lots and save on regular parking rates.
“Incorporating this option into our parking services offerings is another way we are trying to make the overall travel experience as easy and convenient as possible,” said CAE Executive Director, Mike Gula.
The innovative parking system, which is accessible through CAE’s website, flycae.com, is designed to offer a more affordable parking solution, with added savings, for customers.
Beginning November 24, travelers can pre-book parking through an easy online process:
1. Visit flycae.com, click on the pre-book icon on the homepage and enter trip dates;
2. Choose a parking package based on the desired lot location and cost;
3. Submit payment online; and
4. Scan an emailed barcode upon entry and exit to the parking lot.
The online booking system is called GOairport and utilizes dynamic pricing, yield management and occupancy-based pricing techniques that share similar fundamentals with the airline and hotel industry which delivers the most competitive prices to travelers.
“We commend CAE for taking this step to making their customer journey more contactless and affordable through dynamic pricing. We are confident that this attractive pricing will lead more travelers to park at the airport and for longer periods of time which not only benefits those flying out of CAE, but will support the airport through its COVID-19 recovery efforts,” said Martin Jones, CEO of MAG USA, developer of the GOairport digital parking suite.
CAE’s valet parking services will not be available as a pre-book option until further notice. Travelers will still have the traditional option of paying for parking when exiting the parking garage or surface lots, under the existing payment system.
