Honk and London International Airport Team Up to Offer Cashless Parking Experience

Drivers flying out of London International Airport can safely reserve and pay for parking from the palm of their hand


LONDON, ON, July 29, 2020 – Honk, North America’s leading provider of safe, contactless payments for parking, and London International Airport announced today a joint partnership to bring airport parking completely cashless. The cashless initiative demonstrates the strong commitment from both parties to create the safest and cleanest airport parking experience for travellers and airport staff. When paying with Honk, drivers have two ways to safely reserve and pay for airport parking via Honk’s touch-free payments: 1) Download the free HonkMobile app from the AppStore or Google Play, or 2) Access the eCommerce site at: www.honkmobile.com.

Strong parking safety measures have never been more important amidst COVID-19. The need to eliminate high-touch payment areas and create a healthier and more hygienic payment environment is at the core of this joint initiative. Travellers who drive to the airport now have the safest and easiest parking options available to them. Drivers can plan ahead and pay for parking right from their phone by downloading the HonkAPP from the AppStore or Google Play. Alternatively, they can easily reserve and pay by accessing www.honkmobile.com.

The HonkAPP has a large and active user base in Southern Ontario – and is the City of London’s official mobile parking app. Travellers can book up to 60 days in advance of travel. Once booked, Honk users will receive a barcode to scan upon entering and exiting the parking facility. Unforeseen flight delays or extended trips? Honk gives travellers the freedom and flexibility to extend their parking session from anywhere. Complete peace of mind.

“Being an easy and comfortable airport while maintaining the highest safety standards has always been important to us, which is why we’re excited to roll out cashless parking at London International Airport,” said Gerry Vanderhoek, Manager of Terminal Services and Passenger Experience, London International Airport. “Going cashless will make paying for parking easier, safer and quicker at London International, especially when using the Honk app!”

“Safe airport parking is now top of mind for every traveller,” said Michael Back, Honk President and CEO. “The first part of air travel is getting to the airport – we’re proud to equip London International Airport with a safe, clean, and accessible way for their travellers to start their journey.”
