It’s interesting how FlightCar’s leadership can continue to argue that they’re not in the business of renting cars at airports when they roll out one product after another aimed at airport passengers.

While that offering requires that business travelers pay for their parking, they could also make more when their cars are rented.
… Until recently, those who left their vehicles with FlightCar were able to get free parking, and could even get paid if their cars were rented and used. Rates are between $0.05 and $0.20 per mile.
