Good Airport News

Drivers picking up someone at Spokane International Airport have a new amenity to make the trip easier.

The airport last month opened a free new parking lot along West Airport Drive that is designated for cellphone users who are picking up passengers.

Drivers can pull into the lot and wait for a call from the arriving passenger when they are ready for pickup at the terminal curb. The parking lot is on the righthand side of inbound Airport Drive about a quarter mile from the terminal. Todd Woodard, airport spokesman, said the 40-car lot is already getting a fair amount of use. Normally, there are eight to 10 drivers waiting for calls, he said. More here. Mike Prager, SR

This is great news just in time for the holidays. What's the worst part about holiday travel?
