Zurich Airport Parking Calculator

The Zurich Airport Parking Calculator calculates the parking duration between arrival and departure in minutes and then breaks down the total duration in to the required unit e.g per hour but can also apply mins e.g 15 Mins or a given number of hours e.g 6 hrs. It also takes into account the parking price category (parking stands) and any unassigned parking duration.

Parking duration during airport closure hours are excluded from the total duration e.g closure between 23:00 and 06:00. Test cases GA/BA

The following parking calculator settings are supported:

  • IncludeUnassignedTime (bool; default=true)
    Whether or not to include the unassigned time (time where the aircraft was on the ground, but no parking position was recorded). This should be set to true for simple parking calculations, where location is not important for price. It should be false if taxi-time should not be charged, or if there is another product that charges the unassigned time
  • ChargingInterval=00.01:00:00 (default is hour). See time span format 
  • FreeParkingMinutes=number (default is 0)
  • RoundingMethod=name (default Ceiling)
  • AirportOpenTime=hh:mm (by default it uses the airport opening list) - Note: For 00:00 use 00:01 or 23:59
  • AirportCloseTime=hh:mm (by default it uses the airport opening list) - Note: For 00:00 use 00:01 or 23:59
  • MinuteBandFrom=number (default 0)
  • MinuteBandBelow=number
  • EstimateChargesBeforeArrival  (bool; default=true) If true, the parking calculation will consider unassigned time for parking until the a/c has actually arrived. For this to apply, a Parking must be pre-assigned before arrival.

Note: The calculator has support for a period of maximum 2 years between arrival and departure dates.
Note: For performance reasons, if the airport opening list has the same daily schedule (e.g open daily from 06:00 to 23:00), we recommend using the AirportOpenTime=06:00 and AirportCloseTime=23:00 settings instead of  using the default Administration / Airport Opening List records.
MinuteBandFrom and MinuteBandBelow settings are applied after taking into account parking free minutes.
For example the overall parking is 120 min, and free parking is 30 minutes than this calculator applies the minute band from and below on the 90 minutes parking minutes.
