Sky-high parking fees

Parking prices rise

PARKING fees for workers at Alicante’s El Altet airport have risen by 60 per cent.

The increase is “unfair, abusive and unsupportive,” said representatives of the 3,000 people employed there by more than 20 companies.

But they have no choice because employees are obliged to use the staff car park by Aena, the company that owns the airport. 

In the past some tried to get round the problem by parking on empty airport land, prompting Aena to seal off likely areas with bollards. 

Other workers often park outside the airport precinct but must then cross a busy main road.

All employees must now pay the new rate of €37 a month, with the exception of Aena staff, who are exempt.  

The increase applies to full-time and part-time workers alike, but some of the latter earn around €400 a month and will have problems finding this amount, warned Luis Pastor, one of the staff spokespeople.
