Logan Airport in Boston has the most expensive weekly parking compared to other major airports in the United States, according to a new ranking by Zutobi, an international driver’s education company.

Logan ranked sixth among the world’s most expensive airports for weekly parking.

The current drive-up rate for weekly parking in Logan’s economy garage (which requires taking a shuttle bus) is $203. If you reserve a spot in advance, it costs $199.

If you want to park in Logan’s central parking garage or Terminal B parking garage for a full week, it will cost you $266 (or $230 if you reserve a spot in advance).

Logan was the only American airport to make Zutobi’s top 10 list. Topping the list in first place was Hamad International Airport in Qatar, which charges a $278.77 minimum weekly parking rate, followed by London Stansted Airport, which charges $263.66, and Abu Dhabi International Airport, which charges $228.70.

To calculate the rankings, the company looked at 97 of the busiest airports in the world in terms of commercial passengers that use them each year. Twenty-six of the airports were in the United States.

The company also looked at the airports with the least expensive weekly parking. Taking the number one spot on that list was Sabiha Gökçen International Airport in Istanbul, which offers weekly parking for the equivalent of $16.05. The only US airport that made the top 10 least expensive list for weekly parking was Los Angeles International Airport, where it costs $35 to park your car for a week.

When asked to comment on Logan’s ranking, Massport spokeswoman Samantha Decker provided an overview of the various transportation options that Logan offers.

“Our goal is to offer as many transportation options to our passengers as possible, and we heavily promote our various HOV modes,” Decker said in an email. “Terminal Parking or parking in the Economy Garage are the most convenient options for arrivals and departures at Logan and our prices are listed on our website. We also offer a number of options to get to and from Logan Airport including the MBTA Silver Line (which is free from Logan), the MBTA Blue Line, the MBTA water ferry service, taxis, Uber and Lyft, and our Logan Express services in Framingham, Peabody, Woburn, and Braintree, which have a discounted online price of $9 and kids ride for free. Our Back Bay Logan Express service is another option that will be returning this fall. We suggest travelers plan in advance how they will get to and from Logan.”
