KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — IdleAir on Friday increased prices for the first time in nearly two years, but the company said the new rates will be frozen through at least Dec. 31.
IdleAir has “held the line” on the pricing of its window-unit based cab heating/cooling, Internet, television and shore power services, the company noted, even offering a price decrease in March 2011 with the launch of the Extended Stay discount.
“Although IdleAir’s prices do not follow fuel price fluctuations, our costs have increased over the past two years, like those of our customers,” the company said in announcing the new pricing. “IdleAir needs to increase prices to ensure the long-term viability of IdleAir as a business, and to maintain the quality and value of our services.”

As of June 1, IdleAir Premium Service will be $2.09 per hour (plus local tax) for the first 10 hours. After the first 10 hours of a continuous visit, the Extended Stay discount will automatically reduce the price of Premium Service to $1.49 per hour.
Prices for IdleAir broadband services and ancillary products (keyboards, cables, etc.) will remain at their current rates.
IdleAir intends to keep pricing “as steady and predictable as possible” to maximize value and convenience for its customers, the company said.
