Saskatoon, SK: Picking up arriving passengers at the John G. Diefenbaker Airport in Saskatoon just got easier with the opening of a new Cell Phone “Park & Wait” lot.
The complimentary lot is designed to reduce the need for drivers to circle around the airport loop- road waiting for their passengers to come out of the terminal. It is located along Airport Drive just as you drive onto the Airport property. Attended vehicles may wait in the lot until their passenger has arrived, claimed their luggage and is ready to be picked up. Once the passenger is at the curb with their luggage they simply phone their ride and have them come to the terminal and pick them up at the designated “Cell Phone Pick-Up” area in front of the terminal.
“This is another convenience designed to ease the hassle of air travel and to provide options for those people picking up arriving passengers,” said Bill Restall, President and CEO.
The cell phone lot is identified by a brown and white information sign on Airport Drive and located a short distance from the terminal. Those people who want to meet their arriving passenger in person still have the option of parking in the front two rows of the public lot which are designated for short-term parking.
