ITALY. Pre-booking parking company ParkCloud has partnered with ViaMilanoParking, a division of SEA Milan Airports. All official on-site car parks at both Milan Linate and Milan-Malpensa airports will now be available on the ParkCloud parking booking platform.

A phased roll-out is in progress, and an exclusive launch offer has been negotiated. ParkCloud says it has a current user base of nearly three million people, and already serves Milan Bergamo Airport.

At Milan-Malpensa, some 9,000 spaces will become accessible via the booking platform. These will be across five car park categories: P1 Long Term, P2 Executive, P3 Express, P4 Holiday and P5 Easy. Both indoor and outdoor parking spaces will be on offer.

Milan Linate car parks will become accessible simultaneously, with options to include P1 Top Class, P2 Executive (undercover) and P2 Holiday (open air).

ParkCloud said initiatives such as a new meet-and-greet service would be added to its pre-book network.

“SEA Milan Airports is an internationally-renowned airport operator with control over the entire local region,” said ParkCloud Managing Director Mark Pegler. “We are delighted to be partnering with this industry giant, and the new collaboration will enhance the airport experience for many passengers, presenting them with additional options to pre-plan more elements of their journeys.

“Milan is a prime destination for us to continue to grow our network and we anticipate a successful and prosperous partnership with SEA Milan Airports going forward.”

Earlier in January, ParkCloud renewed its contract with Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport for another two years.
