Little Rock National Airport has opened its cell phone lot, a boon for folks who want to pick up friends from the airport without having to pay parking fees.


The lot is in the former Aerospace Museum parking area; four directional signs to the lot have been erected. The plan was met with some resistance from airport staff initially as being unnecessary — (read: free) — but the Airport Commission prevailed, approving the plan in April. The airport has spent $21,000 refurbishing the area.

The cell phone lot will be patrolled daily by both police and airport staff.
