Everyone agrees that parking has always been an issue here in Penang. Whether it’s in town, the hospital, the airport, or even your nearby local coffee shop, finding parking is always a hassle. Hence, here comes another exciting news for Penangites – the long-anticipated multi-storey car park at Penang International Airport (PIA) is finally available to the public!
Penang International Airport (PIA) New Multi-Storey Car Park Begins Operations On 1 April 2023
Effective on 1 April 2023, the new multi-storey car park at PIA begins operations after obtaining the certificate of completion and compliance (CCC) from the relevant authorities. This means that there will be more parking spaces available for travellers who are travelling from Penang!
The Seven-Storey Car Park Provides 1,742 Parking Bays
According to Bernama, the newly-constructed car park is a seven-storey building that is able to provide 1,742 parking bays. This includes 22 bays for the disabled, as well as 660 bays for motorcycles!
