Parking at Udon Thani Airport

laying down concrete or asphalt would be relatively easy although expensive these days.. Then charge for the parking..

Then the Thais will find another very pragmatic solution.
E.g. only the driver will go without shoes to pick up the car while the others and the luggage will wait on the street.
Or: Give the keys to an Australian.
Living in Thailand means to know how to improvise. :D

The fees do not not look outrageous to me if they are controlled properly.

I agree with you Macca. I have been to the airport twice in the last few days.
They are now in the process of providing sheltered cover for cars with sunshades.
This is in the areas closed off at the moment.

If they can provide controlled parking (ie not getting blocked in by some arsehole leaving his handbrake on) it would be good.

There again some Thai people will not pay for parking so that would ease the problem even more.
They would park their cars on the road outside the airport like which they have started to do now if they only are staying 24 hrs.

Was at the airport last night.
There is an office where the sign is displayed.
It is where the coffee shop was at the end of the car park.
They also are using the office area to store all the barriers etc. & which looks like they will installed at each bay.
Two bays have had weather shades installed so it looks like when you enter the car park you will get a ticket with the time & date on it.

The new International terminal is now open & Lion Air flights operate from there.
You have to check in for domestic Lion Air flights there.
They have luggage scanners & what looks like a nice lounge area.
Maybe they will start International flights as all the facilities have been put in place.

I can.see the airport based limo taxis raising their prices to accomadate the parking fees.

Unless PTT have a corporate /monthly / yearly rate for them.

Would love to see the private sector allowed to wheel clamp at the airport also.

PTT with 50 wheel clamps would make a.killing.

Only issue with wheel clamping is the cars that were blocked then become permanently blocked till the fine is paid and vehicle released.

For double parked vehicles tow or lift away to a compound - can then charge for more to release ;)

Last night was told at my meeting that the Airport will begin charging for parking , prices from 20 BbAHT TOI 250 BAHT , the 250is for 24hrs.
It was decided to do that as nearly 300 cars are parked there for 24hrs or more each day , mainly because of people from the surrounding districts and Laos.
So unless you really have to , using a taxi or a friend would be far more advantageous and probably cheaper.
The reply about security was met with the following reply, CCTV cameras etc are /will be installed, the big question, is anybody watching them will be interesting.
I twill not take long for would be car thefts of or from to be on the increase as Long term parking will be easily identified.

I stand to be corrected, but whilst the theft of motorbikes seems common, to my knowledge theft from or of cars is rare. (Except, of course, the mysterious disappearance of quality cars held in custom warehouses. :roll: ) Long may that remain the case. Or am I wrong?

Still don't know why people need to park at the airport long term, there are a few reasons perhaps like going to BKK for a couple of days. But this can be accommodated in a separate long term car park.
Know idea why people on a flight by flight basis would park for any more than an hour.
I am one of those that just call when I am off the plane and my teerak just comes and pulls up out front in the drop off pick up area, gone in 5 minutes. I callto tell her if the plane is late or on time from BKK.
Don't need a welcoming or send off entourage anymore. Joop joop at the car and gone. I know, no need to tell me, I am a romantic.

According to an Udon facebook page, fee-based parking will begin on 14 Jan on a trial basis. As with all things new, I'd expect some initial hiccups.
