UPDATE: 4:15 p.m. — The situation is improving but still isn’t great. Just a handful of spots are available in the Palm and Cypress garages as of Friday afternoon. The airport’s automated tracking system often counts employee parking spots as general public spots, which is not the case. We find it is best to underestimate the number of spaces truly available.

BROWARD COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Parking is at complete capacity at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport. All parking garages are full. While logic suggests that spots will open as flights land and passengers depart, we have learned that all parking is officially being diverted to off-site lots. That means you should add at least an hour and a half to your travel schedule.

The official off-site lot for FLL is located at 1661 SW 40th Street in Fort Lauderdale. It is close to the airport but not walking distance. Credit cards are required. The fee is $10/day.

It was not immediately clear if travelers are allowed to enter the parking garages to look for spaces before moving off-site. If you are new to FLL, the garage utilizes a frequently accurate “red light, green light” system. Lights above parking spaces that are open should display a green light. Spots with cars or other vehicles display a red light. It may seem unnecessary, but the corridors are long and having lights on the ceiling, indicating open spaces, and help you determine whether it’s worth driving down the aisle or not.

Observe the real-time parking situation at FLL by downloading the FLL app through your phone’s App Store. We are noting that Miami International Airport is reporting garages are near capacity. Several off-site MIA parking lots are available, visit here to see where they are.

Parking remains available at Palm Beach International Airport, although you may need to spend time driving through several levels of garage to find a space that is near the area of the airport that you are hoping to access. The good news: PBI isn’t large.
