The revised program includes the following changes:

- Implementation of RFID stickers for parking access
Currently, the annual parking program is limited to 100 passes. If you do submit an application for an annual parking pass and we are at capacity, you will be notified that you are added to the wait list.
The Charlotte County Airport Authority is estimating to begin the new program on March 01, 2019.
Once your online application is received, you will be contacted for payment. Once payment is accepted, arrangements will be made for you to pick up your RFID tags.
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is a tag with an embedded transmitter, similar to the Florida Sun Pass, that is used commonly for access control.
When approaching the entrance or exit to the designated parking lot, the RFID reader will emit a small amount of radio frequency to your tag. Once the tag communicates with the gate to provide identification, the system will search our database on our secure network to grant access for your vehicle.
RFID tag access is limited to the database in which its information is entered. Your RFID tag will only grant access to the parking gate at the Punta Gorda Airport as no other system will have your information for access.
The RFID tag does not carry any GPS transmitters or personal information. The RFID tag transmits a number which will then search our secured database to ensure you have access to the parking lot. If your RFID tag is not in the database, access will be denied.
If you currently hold a monthly pass, our administration office will adjust the final price depending on your remaining credit. If your remaining credit is over the $1,000, you will be refunded the remaining balance.
Your RFID tag is valid for 365 days from the date of purchase. You may enter and exit as many times as you’d like within that time frame.
Our monthly parking pass is $2,100 per year ($175 per month) and allows access to all long-term parking lots at the Punta Gorda Airport. The annual parking pass is $1,000 per year and allows access to only the long-term overflow parking lot. For a map of the Punta Gorda Airport property, please click here.
With the RFID tag, the user will have faster entry into the parking lot and unlike the previous parking cards, the RFID tags cannot demagnetize.
