Seeking to Avert Another Holiday Parking Disaster, Love Field Adds 1,000 Spaces

If you're flying out of the newly Wright Amendment-unencumbered Love Field this week and haven't yet found a parking space, you can breathe a shallow sigh of relief. The airport will have 1,150 more spaces for Christmas than it did for Thanksgiving.
Almost half of those spaces (500) are valet spots in a newly city-leased lot close to the airport. Employee parking has been cleared out of garages A and B to create 400 parking berths and The Parking Spot, a private lot, will have 250 more spots than it did on Thanksgiving.
Additionally, while it may not be a train line running to the terminal, DART and the airport are teaming up on a free shuttle between the Green Line's Inwood Station and the airport. The "Love Link" will run from 5:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. every day.
With both local airports expecting record crowds over the holiday season, the 1,100+ spots might not be enough -- Love Field officials have announced plans to add about 4,000 parking spaces as quickly as possible -- so airport officials still advise that travelers get to the airport early and find alternative transportation, if possible.
