BROWARD COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Just a day after all parking garages at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport reached full capacity for the first time in years, the airport reports this morning that the parking situation is returning to normal.
The somewhat surprising closure of all garages when all 8,959 parking spots were occupied led to the emergency opening of the airport’s rarely used overflow lot off property. The lot required use of a shuttle, offered a maximum stay of 7 days, and mandatory payment by credit card.
But as of 9:50 a.m. Sunday, the situation at FLL has apparently stabilized. The airport just announced that the overflow lot is now closed and not accepting new customers. The airport is showing at least 339 available spots, although simultaneously reporting that only 5,499 spots are occupied out of 8,959. It’s unclear how the additional 3000+ spots — not listed as “occupied” or “available” — are being used.
Valet parking at FLL remains closed due to COVID-19. The airport also reminds all visitors that masks are mandatory, over your nose and mouth, throughout all airport locations. Masks also must be worn, over your nose and mouth, during all phases of flight. Law enforcement remains on property to enforce the federal mandate.
