San Antonio International Airport

San Antonio International Airport expanded its shuttle service Monday which may help in addressing a parking change that has frustrated some passengers.

The changes are the result of a construction project that demolished the hourly parking lot to make way for a garage that will eventually house rental car companies and short term parking.   

The expanded shuttle service may ease frustration that has some airport visitors fuming.

On Friday, senior citizens Jane and Armand Allee drove to the San Antonio airport to pick up friends who were flying in.

City of San Antonio

Pending City Council approval, construction on a $165.6 million Consolidated Rental Car Facility, or CONRAC, is set to start at San Antonio International Airport this summer.  The CONRAC, funded by a Customer Facility Charge, will provide a conveniently located facility for customers renting and returning rental vehicles at SAT.  The CONRAC will include up to 14 car rental brands housed in the same customer service lobby, vehicle pickup and return, and a Quick Turn Around facility, plus covered short-term parking for airport patrons.
