Parking at CCIA

Parking at Corpus Christi International Airport is affordable and convenient. The parking lot is located right across from the terminal.

There are two convenient "pay on foot" machines; one located inside the terminal baggage claim area, the other just outside of the terminal as you enter the parking lot. To use these machines, simply insert your parking stub, pay with cash or card, and take your ticket with you when you head for your vehicle. This equipment allows visitors to pay for parking before getting back in their vehicles. Visitors can also exit with no hassle or delay.

Cell Phone Lot

CCIA has added a Cell Phone Lot just north of the commercial parking lot. The Cell Phone Lot gives visitors a safe place to wait on arriving passengers. Be on the lookout for a new, larger Cell Phone Lot to come in the future.
