The long-term parking lot at L.F. Wade International Airport has been closed indefinitely because of unusually high tides.

Bermuda Skyport said excessive high tides, which have caused flooding conditions in the low-lying car park, are expected from tomorrow until next Wednesday.

A section of the long-term parking lot will be closed. Partial barriers have been put in place while more visible fencing to cordon off the affected areas will soon be installed.

Motorists are asked to avoid parking in the cordoned-off area to avoid possible flood damage to their vehicles.

Skyport spokeswoman Mikaela Pearman stated: “We would like to advise vehicle owners to take extra caution when parking at the airport’s long-term lot as Bermuda Skyport will not be responsible for any damage to vehicles.

“With the peak-travel November 11 holiday weekend approaching, available parking may be limited. As such, we’re asking travellers to kindly plan accordingly.”
