Victorians can fly stress free with Avalon Airport slashing parking prices for all travellers
MEDIA RELEASE | 2 February 2020
Victorians can fly stress free and with peace of mind, thanks to a new offer by Melbourne Avalon Airport promising affordable and competitive parking prices for domestic and international travellers in February and March 2020.
Off the back of the recent news of Tullamarine Airport increasing its parking prices, Avalon Airport will slash its parking fees by 25 per cent across all short term and long term parking areas for the next two months. Avalon Airport’s parking solution offers a convenient way for Victorians to travel without the hassle and worry of being slapped with a hefty parking bill.
Avalon Airport CEO, Justin Giddings, said: “Flying is already stressful enough and can be quite expensive for some Victorians. We assessed our car park offer to see what we could do to help out holidaymakers across the state,” he said.
“Flying via Avalon Airport already means cheaper parking in addition to cheaper fares, but we wanted to lower our prices even further for all Victorians to remove the added concern of massive parking fees. We want to eradicate that stress so travellers can use their funds towards a good holiday, instead of forking out big bucks for a car spot.”
“There are many great, but unknown benefits that come with flying at Avalon Airport. Not only is parking cheaper, it’s also more convenient. All parking – both long term and short term – are located right outside the terminals, just metres away from check-in,” said Mr Giddings.
Avalon Airport, owned by the Linfox Group, aims to offer travellers with a conveniently uncomplicated and time-efficient service through pocket-friendly fares. Avalon Airport Executive Chairman, David Fox, said it’s baffling how the competition can raise their parking prices by so much.
“We can’t believe Tullamarine have significantly increased their parking fees. It’s another blow for Victorians who are going through so much, especially with the recent bushfires. It seems un-Australian in our opinion. This is the least we can do for our fellow Victorians,” Mr Fox said.
“Avalon Airport is proudly Australian-owned. We are Victorians for Victorians. Our biggest priority is to provide holiday-goers with a much easier and cheaper option to travel both internationally and interstate.”
“We are setting the foundations to create a competitive and fairer option for travellers, and this offer is the first of many great benefits to be announced this year,” he said.
“It’s so much easier to travel with us, and not many people know that yet. From quality of service and punctuality to ease of parking and checking-in, flying can be easy, stress-free and an enjoyable experience,” said Mr Fox.
The new offer coincides with Avalon Airport’s next generation of growth, now commencing daily flights to Bali with Citilink Indonesia, with the first flight touching down last weekend on Saturday 26 January 2020. The business has also enlisted one of Australia’s most loved personalities Shane Jacobson as brand ambassador to spearhead its marketing campaign in 2020.
In addition to daily flights to Bali, there are twice daily flights to Kuala Lumpur via AirAsia and daily Jetstar flights to Sydney, Gold Coast and Adelaide.
Avalon Airport’s 25 per cent off parking offer commences Monday 3 February 2020 and concludes 12 midnight on Tuesday 31 March 2020. To receive the discount drivers will need to exit the car park during that period.
