Travelers can now access convenient and affordable parking at Toronto Pearson with Honk, the innovative App transforming parking across North America
TORONTO, June 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HonkMobile, North America’s fastest and most convenient way to find and pay for parking and the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA), have partnered to introduce a new channel to pay for parking at Toronto Pearson International Airport, Canada’s largest and busiest airport. To celebrate the launch, Honk is offering travelers 10% off their airport parking. The offer: reserve airport parking using promo code YYZ between June 5 to 19th for travel before August 1st, 2018. Honk is a cutting-edge platform transforming the parking experience – the first of its kind in Canada to allow travelers to reserve and pay for airport parking in advance with an app.
The Honk app allows users to seamlessly search, pay for and top up parking directly from their smartphone, tablet or computer. In addition to giving users the ability to pre-purchase parking, Honk gives travelers the flexibility of extending their parking sessions remotely – perfect for when trips are extended or flights are delayed. Travelers can start using the app immediately to book parking at both Pearson terminals, including valet, daily and value parking lots up to 60 days in advance. Once booked, Honk users will receive a barcode to scan upon entering and exiting the parking location.
The launch at Toronto Pearson builds off the increased demand for Honk and mobile payments from municipalities, schools and businesses and signals an intent to expand to other airports across Canada. Partnering with Canada’s largest and busiest airport demonstrates confidence that Honk can help deliver the GTAA’s goal of providing an enhanced passenger experience. Together, Honk and the GTAA will ensure passengers of over 1,000+ daily flights move more easily and comfortably through the airport.
“We are committed to providing passengers with more choice, value and convenience when parking at Toronto Pearson International Airport,” said Scott Collier, Vice President, Customer and Terminal Services at Toronto Pearson. “The launch of Honk reflects this mission by giving our passengers another channel to reserve their parking using a mobile app. Airport parking is a key part of the travel experience and Honk’s innovative solution supports our strategic goal to become the best airport in the world.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Canada’s largest airport to provide travelers with an affordable, stress-free travel experience,” said Honk Founder and CEO Michael Back. “Honk has seen an increased demand amongst travelers, and the launch at Pearson is the first of many of our planned airport launches in the coming months. We are confident our app will meet the needs of both business travelers and vacationers – eliminating circling for a spot and providing peace of mind from your front door to take-off.”
