Parking Rates

Parking at The Eastern Iowa Airport (CID) is easy and convenient. There are two lots: Short-term and Long-term; however there is no specific time limit for either lot. Short-term parking spots are closer to the terminal entrance and cost $12 per day. Long-term parking spots are farther from the terminal entrance and cost $7 per day. If you are planning to leave your vehicle in the lot more than 30 days, please call Republic Parking at 319.363.2704.

Credit and debit cards are acceptable forms of payment.

We now have a new option available that will let you “Fly Through Parking.” Customers are able to enter the parking lot with a credit card (eliminating the need to take a ticket) and then use the same credit card to exit the parking lot, streamlining the process.
