SAN JOSE (CBS SF/BCN) — Mineta San Jose International Airport plans to add more than 300 parking spaces Saturday to meet growing demand as COVID-19 restrictions ease and people begin traveling again, airport officials said.
The airport is reconfiguring its parking to provide exclusive covered spots in Lot 3, and is adding surface lot spaces in Lot 4 that were previously occupied by airport employees, according to airport spokesperson Keonnis Taylor.READ MORE: Bay Area Heat Wave Rekindles Memories Of Flex Alerts, Rotating Outages

“Providing the ability to arrive at the airport and find ample, convenient parking is just one way we are helping to take the worry out of flying. We want people to be thinking about where they’re going to fly, not where they’re going to park,” airport assistant director of aviation Judy Ross said in a news release.MORE NEWS: COVID: Excitement Builds As Bay Area Counts Down To June 15 Reopening
