Upon returning from the airport to retrieve your vehicle, you must do the following:

  • Drive your vehicle to the gated exit of the ramp and press the button on the pay station.
  • Push the call button on the pay station—or dial the phone number posted there—to speak with a remote agent and request the AirRide discount rate of $2/day. If you do not do this, you will be charged the full daily rate.
  • After the agent confirms your discounted parking rate, finish your payment and exit the ramp.

*Without validated ticket, full daily parking rates apply.  Lost tickets will be charged the twenty-four (24) hour maximum daily rate. A validated ticket receipt given by a Michigan Flyer driver may be used for exiting the structure, when no parking entry tickets are available. For your security, please remove all personal belongings from view.

McNamara (Delta) Terminal
Departures Level 

We pick up and drop off all passengers on the Departures Level (also known as Level 3) of the McNamara Terminal. This is the terminal used by Delta Air Lines and its partner carriers Air France and Aeromexico and West Jet.




Important: How to Find Us at the McNamara Terminal

  • DO follow SIGNS LIKE THESE for “Municipal Transportation” and “Ticketing/Check-In.” They will help guide you to our location for both drop-offs and pickups on Level 3 (a.k.a. Departures Level). Our stop is just outside and to the left of Door number 1 labeled “International Ticketing/Check-In, Air France, AeroMexico.”
    Once outside, when you see an "AirRide Route 787” sign on a metal post, you will know you have reached the correct location. If you need assistance, just ask an airport official "How do I get to check-in for Air France?"
  • DO be aware that NOT all elevators go up to Departures Level 3, where our Michigan Flyer-AirRide stop is located. Be sure to take an elevator that goes all the way up to “Ticketing/Check-In” on Level 3.
  • DO NOT follow signs that say “Bridge Walk to Parking” or “Ground Transportation Center.”

More Important Details

  • RESTROOMS and RESTAURANTS on Departures Level 3 are ALL located inside the secure area beyond the TSA Security Checkpoint. If you are outside the secure area, take an elevator down to Luggage Claim/Domestic Arrivals (Level 1) to find a restroom or restaurant. Also, please note that there is a restroom on board every Michigan Flyer-AirRide motorcoach.
  • PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES who have not arranged for wheelchair or other assistance in advance should know that the Prospect Services desk for requesting such help has been moved to the far south end of the Ticketing/Check-In area, near the Westin Hotel entrance.
  • Prospect phone number is 734-921-7200.
