Automated car park access being established at Sangster airport

MBJ Airports Limited, operator of the Sangster International Airport (SIA), is introducing an automated car park system at the airport.

MBJ is in the process of installing a CAME Parkare automated system at the two entrances and three exits of the public car park at SIA, representing an investment of approximately US$300,000.

Customers will be automatically issued a ticket upon entering the car park as they approach the barrier. The tickets should be kept with the customers until they are ready to pay and exit the park.

The tickets carry a time stamp that will allow the customers to pay for parking in cash at one of three automated payment locations situated at the arrival and departure areas, and in the car park itself. One of the automated exit lanes will be manned to accept debit and credit card payments.

The parking fees are to remain unchanged at Ja$150 per hour for the first three hours or part thereof, or Ja$600 for more than three hours and up to 24 hours, with an additional Ja$600 due for each additional 24-hour period or part thereof.

MBJ said automating access to the car park at SIA is part of its broader plan to improve service and operational efficiency for the airport's customers.

"We are pleased to introduce cutting-edge technology from one of the world's leading manufacturers of automated parking systems, making it easier and faster for our customers to enter and exit the car park at Sangster International Airport," commented MBJ Airports’ CEO, Rafael Echevarne. "This upgrade is one of many infrastructure improvements under way at the airport geared towards making the experience enjoyable and seamless for our valued guests," Echevarne added.

CAME Parkare is part of Italy-based CAME Group, a leader in automated access control systems. The company is a specialist in automated parking systems, with more than 50 airport parking systems installed across the globe.
