DES MOINES, Iowa — The Des Moines International Airport has a new cell phone lot, but you’ll have to go further to get to it.
The lot provides an area to park while waiting to pick up passengers. It is located on the south side of the airport and is accessible from Cowles Drive or the Leland Avenue and Fleur Drive intersection.
Executive Director Kevin Foley says a bigger lot was needed due to increased passenger traffic. He also says there’s been congestion on the front curb and this lot will help to reduce it.
The new lot is about a three minute drive from the airport’s front curb.
