Airport Parking and Hotels (APH), the leading independent airport parking company in the UK, has increased its list of accolades after winning the ‘Best Park & Ride Operator’ Award for its new Gatwick operation at the first Independent Airport Parking Awards 2019.

The awards were hosted for the first time this year by the Independent Airport Parking Association (IAPA), the trade association representing the UK’s leading park & ride and meet & greet operators, with the aim to recognise companies leading the way in setting high standards within the airport parking industry.

APH opened a new start-of-the-art car park at London Gatwick Airport this year which is located even closer to the airport therefore providing shorter journeys for customers and faster transfer times of just 10 – 12 minutes to both the South and North Terminals via APH shuttle buses. Situated just 3.9 miles away from Gatwick Airport and accessible via the Junction 10 exit on the M23 motorway, APH Gatwick on Crawley’s Copthorne Road offers business and leisure travellers alike hassle-free airport parking and excellent customer service.

Nick Caunter, Managing Director of APH said, “We’re honoured to win the IAPA Award 2019 for ‘Best Park and Ride Operator’ at our new Gatwick site. APH has always been focused on delivering a high level of service to our customers and this award is testament to the hard work and dedication that has been continued by the APH staff at our new car park.”

APH is a family owned company with over 39 years of experience in the airport parking business, operating its own car parks at Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham Airports as well as offering airport parking options at all major airports and providing airport hotels, lounges and travel extras.
