Frequent flyers across California are about to regret buying that electric car

Skift Take

LAX started offering the incentive over a decade ago, which no longer makes sense for the airport as it risks losing up to $120,000 a day from free parking.

Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) has announced plans to drop one of California’s most generous incentives for electric vehicle owners, retiring a policy which offered free parking for up to 30 days in two specially-designated lots. According to a leaflet distributed to drivers, the incentive will be withdrawn on March 1st, at which point charges will revert to $30 per day, although free charging points will still be offered.

As a Wall Street Journal report makes clear, the move has come as a shock to frequent flyers, many of whom bought electric cars specifically to take advantage of the benefit.
