Both of London”s major airports, that is Gatwick and Heathrow, have unveiled improvements to their car parking arrangements.
Gatwick Airport has gained a major refurbishment of its short and long stay car parks and also invested ”1.1m in the valet parking facility. The improved service allows customers to arrive at the terminal and handover their keys to a trained valet professional in the secure knowledge that whenever they return, their car will be waiting at the terminal for a swift and easy get away.
New technology has also been introduced to ensure that vehicles are returned to their owners in the same condition as they were placed in their care. This involves a series of discreet photos being taken from several angles as the car arrives at the terminal to provide an accurate record of the car”s bodywork.
Gatwick Airport director of retail Joanna Astor said: ”Our car parking services are often the first and last contact many of our customers have with our airport. It is therefore essential we provide the best possible car parking experience for a new breed of business and leisure customer. With our latest investment, we are confident we will provide a solution for all our customers” different parking needs.”
At Heathrow a new Q-park is located just off the A4, only five minutes to the road tunnel that serves Terminals 1, 2 and 3. Frequent courtesy buses are provided to transport customers to the terminals. It is operated by BCP and is open 24 hours per day all the year round.
”Q-Park London Heathrow represents the most modern airport car parking system and service in the country,” said BCP marketing director Eric Campus. ”We are very proud to be offering a brand new multi-storey car park at the world”s busiest international airport and are sure that customers will appreciate the extremely high standards of safety, security and overall customer service this facility offers.”
