Parking Without a Ticket Now Possible at Graz Airport Thanks to Arivo and APCOA

APCOA PARKING & Arivo have transformed the parking experience at Graz Airport

Since this summer holiday season, Graz Airport has been successfully operating the most modern system for easy pre-booking of parking spaces. Travelers reach the terminal faster now, arrival and departure times are significantly reduced and the annoying handling of parking tickets has finally come to an end. APCOA PARKING & Arivo – setting trends in parking.

Relaxed Parking at Graz Airport - Enjoy Your Holidays

At Graz Airport customers can book a guaranteed parking space in the area of choice via an internet platform and pay online. The car park is equipped with Arivo‘s automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) system. Users access and exit the car park within the booked period without having to pull another ticket. The barriers open automatically, the license plate is recognized quickly and reliably. Regular customers can also register their profiles on the platform to process future bookings even faster.

"It is important for us to always meet the current requirements of our customers with our services. We are happy that we have implemented the most innovative parking system in cooperation with our partner APCOA PARKING and ARIVO, a specialist for digital parking systems," says Gerhard Widmann, Managing Director of Airport Graz.

You can find the platform at or at the website of Airport Graz.

Parking Services for Short-term Parking and a Solution for Ticket Loss

Short-term parkers who access with a ticket also benefit from the ease of use of the system. If the parking ticket is already paid park barriers open automatically when the number plate is recognized. Ticket handling to exit is no longer needed. The reliable license plate recognition also ensures that a replacement ticket can simply be issued in the event of ticket loss.
