Record Number of Passengers Expected to Impact Parking and Increase Security Lines During the Holidays


Redmond Airport (RDM) has experienced a record number of passengers again in 2018 and expects the trend to continue over the upcoming holiday travel season. The increased passenger volume will lead to limited parking availability and increase waiting time in security screening lines at the airport. Travelers are encouraged to check RDM’s website at for parking availability before arriving to the airport. Being prepared for parking and security screening will make for a more efficient and pleasant journey.

Airport officials will update parking availability on the Airport website every 30 minutes and suggest using alternate travel ride share options during this holiday season. “It is important for travelers to understand we may reach our parking capacity a number of times throughout the holidays and we encourage them to seek alternative arrangements,” states Zachary Bass, Airport Director. “We also strongly encourage passengers to arrive no later than 2 hours prior to flight departure to clear through security, especially for flights departing between 5:00 A.M and 7:00 A.M. “

  • Airport parking rates are $1.00 for the first 30 minutes, after 31 minutes the $2.00 hourly rate is effective. Cash, credit and debit cards are accepted forms of payment. Maximum daily parking cost is $10.00 and the seventh day free.
  • The “cell phone waiting” area is free and located across the street from the Airport on Salmon Avenue.
  • The curb at the Terminal is for active loading and unloading only, no parking or waiting is allowed, due to Federal regulations. (Parking citations are $50.00)
