    2009 Smart Fortwo - $11,990 to start, one of America’s 10 most fuel efficient 36 mpgUS combined and now cheaper to park!

    AviStar/FastTrack Airport Parking announces an agreement with Smart USA, a subsidiary of Penske Automotive Group, to provide parking discounts to Smart Fortwo owners at 11 participating parking facilities at seven airports across the country. Owners of the revolutionary vehicle will receive a 50 percent discount off daily-posted parking rates at select airport parking facilities.

    At 61 inches wide and 106 inches long, the Smart Fortwo is a practical solution for Americans looking to find an easy way to park in cities across the country. In addition to being easy to park, the vehicle is attracting a significant number of buyers who want a solution to volatile gas prices, a way to reduce their environmental footprint and beat urban congestion in a package that is fun to drive.

    For Smart Fortwo owners traveling by plane, AviStar/FastTrack Airport Parking, a wholly owned subsidiary of Parking Company America Airports, LLC (PCAA) is offering half price parking on the daily rate at the following airports:
    • Buffalo International Airport, 4099 Genesee St., Buffalo, NY
    • Chicago O'Hare International Airport, 3700 N. Mannheim Rd., Franklin Park, IL
    • JFK International Airport, 130-24 S. Conduit Ave., Jamaica, NY
    • LaGuardia Airport, 90-01 23(rd) Ave., East Elmhurst, NY
    • Newark Liberty International Airport, 472 Route 1 & 9 South, Newark, NJ
    • Newark Liberty International Airport, 498-512 Rt. 1 & 9 South, Newark, NJ
    • Newark Liberty International Airport, 176-192 McClellan St., Newark, NJ
    • Newark Liberty International Airport, 350-360 Carnegie Ave., Newark, NJ
    • Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, 4040 E. Van Buren, Phoenix, AZ
    • Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, 3622 E. Washington St., Phoenix, AZ
    • San Francisco International Airport, 160 S. Produce Ave., S. San Francisco, CA
    Smart Fortwo owners simply visit Smart Fortwo airport parking, print a coupon, drive to the select airport in his/her Smart Fortwo and present the coupon to the cashier. The discount will be applied when payment is rendered.

    "We are extremely pleased to partner with smart USA and excited to offer smart fortwo owners a 50 percent discount when parking at either our AviStar or FastTrack off-airport parking facilities," said Ethan Spiegelberg, Chief Operating Officer. "We strive to provide our customers with fast, friendly service, and offer them a better value proposition compared to airport parking lots or taxi services. This Smart USA/AviStar/FastTrack offer is a collaborative effort and our companies' way of rewarding our eco-friendly consumers."

    AviStar/FastTrack Airport Parking offers additional services and amenities such as 24-hour shuttles to all terminals, free luggage assistance and free coffee and espresso in their lobbies. The AviStar/FastTrack Airport Parking promotion expires on October 31, 2009.

    AviStar/FastTrack began offering half price parking at New York City's LaGuardia and JFK International Airports in March for 90 days with fantastic results, therefore creating a second campaign at a national level made logical sense for both parties.

    Smart USA has sold more than 35,000 Smart Fortwo’s since January 16, 2008. Currently there are approximately 8,000 smart owners in Buffalo, Chicago, New York City area, Phoenix and San Francisco, the markets included in this promotion.
