|Abstract: ||The number of employees who daily commute to an airport represents, on average, one quarter to one half of the daily number of
passengers. At UK airports it is rare for employees to pay for their car parking, with most employers absorbing the charges imposed by
the airport authority. This paper details the main issues with offering free parking to employees drawing comparisons between a selection
of case studies where parking management measures for employees have been introduced, and the airport sector. The paper then reports
on a survey and a series of focus groups that were conducted with employees at a large UK airport in order to gauge their attitudes and
likely behavioural responses to potential parking management strategies. Key findings are presented to show how airports may be able to
learn from the experiences of others in the successful introduction of parking management strategies, but that there are also key barriers
that are specific to airports that would need to be overcome.
