Parking at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport

Leaving on a jet plane from Phoenix?

Taking your car to PHX?

Looking for the best place to park?

If you just nodded thrice, you’re in exactly the right place.

PHX is a great airport. But then, it serves a pretty special city too.

A trendy, creative city with a fascinating history, Phoenix burns brightly with its charming heritage buildings, striking street art and buzzing nightlife. This cultural oasis in arid Arizona is anything but dry – just ask fans of its refreshing local wine. The scenery of the Sonoran Desert is spectacular and Greater Phoenix (which includes hotspots like Phoenix) is a playground with something to please everyone.

Here in the Valley of the Sun, you can swap four wheels for two and cycle the ale, wine, and coffee trails, peruse public art exhibits, discover the Arizona Canal and sample some of the best craft beers anywhere in the US of A. Great things to do include strolling around the palatial Wrigley Mansion, seeing some mind-blowing ballplayers in action at MLB’s iconic Cactus League and (if you’re feeling fit) hiking the tough trails at Camelback Mountain. Famous sons and daughters of Phoenix include the late, great Chester Bennington, Stevie Nicks, Jordin Sparks, Amber Valletta, Ashley Roberts and Dierks Bentley.

Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport is just 4.8 km from downtown Phoenix and it’s a much bigger (and busier) airport than lots of people realize (processing 44 million travelers annually). A hub for Southwest Airlines and American Airlines, it connects Arizona to the world, with over 250 departures every day.

But it wasn’t always as bustling. In fact, when it first opened in 1929 (with just one runway) it earned the nickname ‘The Farm’ because of its remote, rural location. Whatever your travel plans and requirements, driving to PHX is the most convenient and comfortable way to get there in your own social bubble. All the information you need to find a fantastic deal on PHX parking is coming right up.
