Located just outside of the airport is our Philadelphia Airport parking garage at Winner Airport Parking.
The History of Philadelphia International Airport
Before the airport was built, the land it sits on was referred to as “Hog Island.” This area was used in the late 1920s and 1930s as a training airfield by the Pennsylvania National Guard. In 1940 PHL Airport opened as Philadelphia Municipal Airport (thanks to Charles Lindbergh). Not long after it opened, the United States Army Air Forces used the airport. The AAF trained its fighter and bomber pilots in flying tactics during World War II. By 1945, the airport returned to civil patrol.
In 1945, American Overseas Airlines began offering flights to Europe out of the airport. This is when Philadelphia Municipal Airport became Philadelphia International Airport. Its second terminal opened in 1953. By 1977, four more terminals were built and the last one was built in 2001.
PHL has grown significantly over the years. It began by servicing about 40,000 passengers in 1940, and today it accommodates more than 30 million passengers every year.
Philadelphia International Airport Parking
The Philadelphia Parking Authority manages Philadelphia International Airport parking. The area is available for both short-term and long-term periods. There are parking garages, ground level lots, and an Economy Parking lot, but what many travelers don’t know is that these parking lots aren’t insured. This means the airport isn’t responsible for any damage or break-ins that happen to your car while you’re away.
At Winner, however, we fully insure our Philadelphia International Airport parking lot. This lets you can feel comfortable leaving your car with our Philadelphia Airport parking garage. We also monitor our parking lot with a state-of-the-art surveillance system and an array of bright lights, so we know what’s going on at all times. Parking near Philadelphia Airport has never been so easy!
