Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport Updates Parking Rates

June 24, 2022

Effective Friday, July 1, 2022, some parking rates at the Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport (SDF) will be updated, marking a rate change for the first time in nearly 12 years.

The daily maximum rates for the Garage, Premier East Lot and Surface Lot will update to the following:

  • Garage: $16 daily rate
  • Premier East Lot: $12 daily rate
  • Surface Lot: $10 daily rate

There will be no change to the daily rate for the new Premier West Lot ($12 daily), the Express Shuttle Lot ($8 daily) or Valet Parking ($24 daily). Handicap parking rates will not be impacted. All self-park lots will continue to offer the seventh day free for those parked a week or more. Tiered hourly rates will also continue to be available for all self-park options.

Anyone who parks in the Garage, Premier East or Surface Lot prior to July 1, 2022 will receive the current posted rate without the adjustment for the duration of their park.

Improving the customer experience has been top of mind with multiple parking improvements completed at SDF since 2020 through the SDF Next Program. More than $8 million has been invested with three new or expanded lots – the Premier East (formerly Credit Card Only Lot), the Premier West and the Express Shuttle Lot – increasing available parking options by nearly 15%. This directly coincides with passenger traffic reaching near-record levels following 2019, which was SDF’s best year in history.

The Park Assist® Parking Guidance System was installed in the Garage that indicates which specific spaces are available or occupied by using color-coded LED lights. This offers predictability, security and eases the parking process for travelers and airport visitors. New covered pedestrian walkways were also added from the Surface Lot into the Garage to the Terminal, providing convenient and direct access into the facility while improving the customer’s experience.

To further streamline the parking experience at SDF, a prepaid parking reservation and the SDF Rewards frequent parker program are now available.
