New Fast EV Charging Stations

Nanaimo Airport Commission has responded to the vision of building a clean energy future and is pleased to announce the completion of the installation of our new Fast Electric Vehicle Charging Stations with funding help from the federal and provincial governments. Four conveniently located charging stations may be found in the main parking lot and north parking lot next to car rentals. These stalls are reserved for electric vehicles only, and a time limit of 1 hour is in effect.

Please be advised, effective August 1, 2022, the electric vehicle charging stations at the Nanaimo Airport will be pay-per-use at a rate of $0.22/minute.

Parking Payment Options

PAY BY PLATE PARKING IN EFFECT – Effective Fall 2019, we became a pay by plate parking facility. We suggest you remember your license plate number when heading to the pay kiosk (hint…take a picture with your smart phone).

Parking tickets may be purchased from one of the four ticket dispensers located in the Departures Doorway in the main Terminal Building, the main parking lot, and both the south and north lots.
