Parking at CCIA

Parking at Corpus Christi International Airport is affordable and convenient. The parking lot is located right across from the terminal. Parking rates are established by City ordinance and are based on proximity to the terminal.

Improvements to the Parking Lot

We are working to take some of the headache out of your travel experience and to make parking at CCIA easier than ever.

Starting in early Fall, when you park in the commercial parking lot at CCIA, you'll be able to use some new equipment that will speed up your departure. This new equipment will allow visitors to pay for parking before returning to the parking lot.

The new equipment will be installed near the baggage claim and along the curb in front of the terminal. Travelers and visitors can walk right up to a kiosk, feed in their parking stub, and pay their fees at the machine. Having already paid, their exit from the parking lot will be faster because it will not require the exchange of money or credit cards at that point.

Be on the lookout for new signs too that will better direct visitors in to and around the parking lots at CCIA. During the installation, we'll make every effort to minimize the disruption to normal traffic in the parking lot.

Cell Phone Lot to Open July 1st

On July 1st, CCIA will open a small Cell Phone Lot that will give visitors an option while waiting to pick up arriving passengers. We will convert an existing lot at the Parking Plaza to a temporary place for drivers to wait. It's located just North of the commercial parking lot. Drivers can also pull in to the Short Term Lot and park free for 20 minutes.
