WI-FI, WINE & WHILE AWAY THE HOURS AT CHARLEROI AIRPORT WITH PARKCLOUD
European online parking reservation leader, ParkCloud, has agreed a deal with Belgium’s second largest airport – Brussels Charleroi Airport, BSCA – to provide customers with the option of lounge pass bookings, alongside existing fast track security and pre-booked parking options.
As Charleroi Airport prepares to launch its first long-haul route to Hong Kong with Air Belgium this month, ParkCloud is delighted to be supporting its expansion, adding the airport’s second ancillary service to its global database of near 3 million users.
The airport benefits from two passenger lounges; one located in each of the two terminals. Both lounges boast complimentary drinks, snacks, reading materials and free Wi-Fi, which customers can now book through parkcloud.com. Additionally, passengers who book a lounge pass will receive a complimentary pass through security fast track – allowing them to bypass check-in queues.
ParkCloud has multiple sales channels available for BSCA – including its partnerships with airlines Ryanair and Wizz Air, its own reservation platforms and a tailored booking engine on the airport’s own website. Furthermore, marketing activity is conducted in English, French, Dutch and German, to cater to the multi-lingual Belgian customer base.
There are now 900 low-cost parking spaces available in the P3 car park, compared to just 400 when the partnership with BSCA began in 2013.
ParkCloud’s Managing Director, Mark Pegler, said: “As we work together with our partners to further understand what our customers require from the booking journey, offering ancillary services that complement their travel plans has proved a successful strategy.
“We have long enjoyed a successful partnership with Charleroi Airport – as have our extensive database of customers – twice voting them the best car park in Belgium in our annual ParkCloud Parking Awards. We’re eager to continue our impressive record of growth with the addition of the lounge pass options.”
BSCA announced earlier this month that registered passenger numbers were up to near 600,000 in March.
