Gateway Airport Ready for Holiday Traffic
New Ray Road parking lot to open; discount on parking available

MESA, Ariz. — Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport is prepared for a busy travel season. The continued expansion of Allegiant service at Gateway to 31 cities, including frequent service to Las Vegas, has Airport staff preparing for record numbers of travelers.

In preparation, Airport staff will open a newly constructed 2,700-space Ray Road parking lot located on the southeast corner of Ray and Sossaman Roads.

“We expect the parking lot located adjacent to the terminal will be full,” said Airport Executive Director Lynn Kusy. “We will have plenty of parking at the Ray Road lot located east of Sossaman Road. Departing passengers should monitor signage upon entrance to the Airport area for instructions on where to park. Like most airports, this peak travel period will result in some terminal crowding and I encourage Allegiant passengers to arrive two hours prior to departure to ensure they have an easy airport experience.”

For a limited time, customers that make a purchase at the Paradise Bakery & Café located in the terminal’s baggage claim area will be given one dollar off their total parking bill. Customers must provide their parking token at the time of purchase to receive validation.

“Our customers are looking for ways to save both time and money, especially during the Holiday Season,” said Community Relations Coordinator Patrick Oakley. “Now they can save both at Gateway!”
