New parking payment system at Yellowknife Airport

Public Service Announcement

Yellowknife — August 22, 2022

A new parking payment system will become operational at the Yellowknife Airport starting September 19, 2022 at 8 a.m. At that time, all vehicles will be required to get a ticket to enter the lots and pay a fee to exit.

Vehicles parked in the lot located across from the terminal building prior to the system coming into effect will be allowed to exit free of charge until October 2, 2022 (inclusively).

Vehicles remaining in the lot after October 2, 2022 will be required to pay a fee of $150.00 to exit the lot.

Vehicles remaining in the lot on November 19, 2022, will be considered abandoned and towed at the owner’s expense.

Quick facts:

  • YZF has two parking lots
  • The parking lot located outside the terminal building has been free since April 1, 2020, due to reduced traffic at the start of the pandemic.
  • Parking rates and locations are available here:
  • Parking rates with the new system are the same as pre-pandemic YZF parking rates.
  • The first hour of parking in the short-term lot will be free, but validated tickets will be required to exit.
