VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – January 20th, 2021 – Kelowna International Airport is introducing an app-based parking payment option for the airport’s parking lot. YLW parking customers can now utilize the PayByPhone mobile app to pay for parking.
“Contactless payment is an additional health and safety measure we are implementing at YLW with the help of the PayByPhone app,” says Sam Samaddar, Kelowna International Airport Director. “The new mobile parking app is an easy, simple process to pay for metered parking during your next visit to YLW.”
Once the PayByPhone app is launched, the driver enters their parking location, their length of stay and pays. When a parking session expires, the app sends the user a text message prompting them to extend their parking session remotely, saving the need of having to return to their car to feed the meter. Travelers of the Kamloops airport can also save time and pay for parking on the go by using the app’s ‘Guest’ feature, which allows them to access even faster single-use parking, without having to make an account.
“We’re excited to be adding YLW to the growing list of airports where PayByPhone is simplifying and modernizing the parking experience.” said Roamy Valera, PayByPhone CEO. “We’re not new to the Kelowna area, but we’re glad to be expanding our presence where travelers are looking for a safer, and more convenient way to pay for parking while they travel.”
PayByPhone is one of the fastest growing mobile payment companies in the world, processing over 125 million transactions annually, totaling more than $550 million USD in payments.
