Looking for Birmingham, Alabama?
There are several Birmingham airport parking lots to choose from. “APH Birmingham” and “Birmingham Airparks” are both off-airport lots, but both provide transfer services to the terminal. There are two on-airport lots, “Birmingham Airport Long Stay 1” and “Birmingham Airport Multi-Storey 3” – the first operates a transfer shuttle, and the second is only a short walk from the terminal. For the ultimate in convenience, there is also the “Meteor Meet & Greet Birmingham” option – you drive right up to the terminal and a driver meets you and drives your car to its parking space. It’s like valet parking at the airport!
