Good ol Google has brought you to exactly the right page. Because in this guide, we’ll break down every type of parking that’s available at Atlanta International Airport and also the awesome amenities and facilities in this super-busy air hub.

But first, are you sure you even want to leave Atlanta? This peach of a city is the capital of Georgia and its busiest metropolis, and a fabulous place to live and visit. Which might be the reason it has so many nicknames: from ‘The City in a Forest’ to ‘The A’ and ‘Hotlanta’ to ‘Hollywood of the South’. Green, gorgeous and glamorous, Atlanta’s attractions include a delicious mix of downtown restaurants, a buzzing film-making scene, and lots of institutions showcasing the city’s prominent role in African American history. It would take two lifetimes to see everything Atlanta has to offer, but there are a few hotspots you shouldn’t miss. For instance, the Delta Flight Museum is a must-see for fans of aviation history and features everything from aircrafts dating from the 1920s to the only Boeing 737 flight simulator open to the public in the entire US of A. Meanwhile, foodies can make a beeline for the Chick-fil-A Backstage Tour to learn all about this famously tasty brand. You’ll discover the history of founder S. Truett Cathy, the company history museum and even see top secret new products before they’re unleashed on the public. This is also fabulous city for sports fans, with legendary teams like the Falcons, Braves and Hawks regularly playing to hordes of fans in packed-out stadiums.

All that said, a change of scenery can still be good. So whatever your trip purpose and wherever your destination, let’s get down to that ATL airport parking.

Find the best deals at Atlanta International Airport

One thing’s for absolute sure – there’s plenty of parking at ATL, so you’ll find a space that suits your needs and preferences perfectly. In the Domestic and International terminals there’s everything from hourly parking to daily, economy and park and ride.

And when you see how well-appointed this airport is, there’s no surprise that its parking provision is of a high standard. The history of ATL actually stretches back to 1925, when the city leased an abandoned racetrack, named it Candler Field (after its original owners) and began work in earnest to turn it into an airfield. The airport grew to twice its size in World War II, was renamed Atlanta Municipal Airport and became the busiest in the USA by 1957. By 2003, it was named Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (after the two mayors who had a major impact on its expansion at key junctures, and by 2015 it was processing a mind-blowing 100 million passengers annually. Indeed, ATL has been the busiest airport in the world every year bar one (2020) since 1998.

Your ideal ATL parking spot depends on what floats your boat (or rather, flies your jet) and your unique needs. For instance, if you’re a couple of young lovebirds jetting off for your honeymoon in Paris, choosing economical park and ride parking means you’ll save some Euros for those sumptuous meals overlooking the Seine, whereas the hourly parking zone is ideal if you need to pick up mom and pop after their annual vacay with relatives in New York.

What kind of parking is there at Atlanta International Airport?

There’s lots of convenient, affordable parking at ATL.

And remember that, as well as official airport parking, independent providers can also offer reasonably priced options. For example, Looking4Parking offers ATL parking deals at The Westin Atlanta Airport – Self-Park, Days Inn Wyndham College Park, Quality Inn Union City Atlanta South, and PreFlight Airport Parking – Self Park.

Let’s take a closer look at the official ATL parking options.


Part of the Domestic Terminal parking provision, there are two of these areas located next to the terminals – the North and South Hourly Parkings. When you’re only at ATL to drop off or pick up passengers, or don’t need to stay for long, these are great choices. Rates rise in increasing increments throughout the duration (from the first hour to 24 hours), after which there’s a flat fee for every additional day.

Daily Parking

Another popular choice, Atlanta International Airport Daily Parking connects directly with the Domestic and International Terminals and is spread over four covered levels. The rates per hour and per day here are more reasonable than the hourly/short-term option but this isn’t the best choice for dropping off and picking up.

Economy Parking

At ATL there are three different economy parking areas to choose from. The North and South areas are in close proximity to the parking decks and the West is a little further out. As you’d expect, these are the most reasonably priced official onsite parking areas, with great hourly and daily rates for thrifty travelers.

ATL West Parking

Connected to North and South Terminals, ATL West Parking has a convenient and comfortable shuttle that scoots you to and from the domestic terminal at regular intervals. Another reasonably cheap choice, but don’t lose your ticket or you’ll be charged the maximum daily rate!

International Hourly

Over 1,100 spaces. Super-close to check-in and arrivals. Reserved spaces for green, carpool and vanpool vehicles. The International Hourly car park sets high standards when it comes to convenience and charges in the same way and at the same rate as its domestic equivalent.

International Park-Ride

Located west of Loop Road, the International Park-Ride car park is seriously big – with 2,400 spaces – and shuttles you to the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal in 4 minutes flat. If you don’t mind hopping on the bus, this is an easy and reasonably affordable choice.

EV charging

Proudly cruising in an EV ride? Good on ya. You’ll be happy to know that there are EV parking stations at all the various parking facilities.
