STATEMENT: BoMo Parking Services

Earlier this morning a representative, purportedly from BoMo Parking Services, an independent business which provided off-site parking and is not related to the airport, deposited a holdall at the airport information desk and left immediately. The bag contained a large number of keys.

Our staff are proactively assisting affected passengers by ferrying them from the airport to collect their cars from the site.

A number of passengers have already been assisted back to their cars this morning, with this number likely to increase significantly throughout the day and coming weeks.

Given the circumstances, we are waiving drop-off charges if they need to return to the airport to collect fellow passengers or visitors.

We have 2,300 secure car parking spaces at the airport, with CCTV and patrols, and can accommodate extra bookings from customers who may have booked with BoMo Parking Services over the summer.

Passengers wanting to use our secure parking facilities, either long stay or short stay, and for peace of mind, are encouraged to book online at www.bournemouthairport.com.
