Airport parking aggregator ParkVia has won the contract to provide digital parking solutions to Dortmund Airport 21.
The initial agreement allows ParkVia’s four million-strong customer base to book both multi-storey and outdoors parking spaces at the growing airport.
The deal will also see the parking spaces bookings made available on partner websites including the rapidly expanding Eastern European giant Wizz Air.
This will allow the airport to secure parking bookings at the same time as the customer books their flights.
Jörg Adolphs, non-aviation area manager for Dortmund Airport 21, said: “This new digital path-to-purchase further enhances our passengers’ experience by allowing them to book on their platform of choice at a time that is convenient.
“Being able to integrate with airlines increases booking lead times allowing us to better manage our parking service monetisation.”
ParkVia’s head of strategic accounts, Ilaria Vacca, said: “Dortmund Airport 21 is an important part of the North Rhine-Westphalia infrastructure and we are delighted to have won this competitive tender.
“Our hope is that this new collaboration will enhance the airport’s already excellent experience by allowing passengers to pre-plan more of their journey.”
