Myrtle Beach airport handicap parking changes come at cost to visitors

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) — The policy for handicap parking at Myrtle Beach International Airport has changed and will come at a cost to those who use those spaces.

Before, anyone with a handicap placard or license plate could park at the airport for free. Now, parking in the short or long-term lot is only free for the first 24 hours. After that, regular rates apply, which is up to $21 per day in the short-term lot and $10 per day in the long-term lot,

“I really don’t think it’s fair. I really don’t,” said Mary Adams.

Her daughter, Denise Landhan, picked her from MYR on Tuesday after flying in from New Jersey. Landhan suffers from a lung condition that makes it difficult to walk long distances. She said she parks in handicap spaces everywhere she goes, but that could now cost her whens he comes to MYR.

“Right now I’m retired living on a fixed income. It would be difficult,” said Landhan.
