Tony Bean, Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport executive director, urges Palouse travelers to consider taking a taxi or getting a ride to the airport because of parking lot capacity issues.

Bean said parking at the airport has been constrained for a long time, but new air travel service routes have compounded the issue.

The parking lot can fit about 400 cars following a recent expansion, Bean said, but new air-travel service routes flying to and from the airport have tested the parking lot’s capacity.

He said the parking lot is mostly full during three-day holiday weekends and weekends during which athletic events are held at the local universities, as people fly to and from the Palouse.

Bean wants travelers to consider alternative methods to parking at the airport, but encourages those who need to park to come to the airport an hour and a half before their flight takes off.

“We want travelers to have a hassle-free experience,” Bean said.
