MCI Airport Parking Options

Kansas City International Airport

The Kansas City International Airport is in the process of building a new KCI airport terminal. The new terminal is the largest single infrastructure project in Kansas City's history. It is estimated to be completed in 2023.

The airport’s code is MCI, taken from Mid-Continent International Airport, but locals commonly call the airport KCI.

MCI currently has a few dining and shopping services available for guests before their flights.

Economy parking at Parking Lot B is permanently closed on September 14, 2022. The only economy parking option is at Parking Lot C.

MCI has its Frequent Parker Program, which lets frequent travelers earn points and use them to park for free. A program for corporate employees is also available.

The airport also uses an automated method of payment that lets members use their rewards passes instead of a ticket to get into and out of parking lots.
