Car Parks 1, 2 or 3 are available for picking up passengers. They’re conveniently located near the arrivals area and offer short-term parking that’s ideal for pick-ups. The low charges at these car parks mean that if your passenger is delayed, you won’t end up spending a fortune in parking fees waiting for them to arrive.

Car Parks 1, 2 or 3 also offer longer-term parking, if you’re off on a two-week trip or heading a little further afield for longer.
You can also use Car Park 5 or Car Park 7. Car Park 5 is a surface car park which offers great value for money and is within a 10-minute walk or a short courtesy bus ride from the terminal building. Car Park 7 is our off-site car park, approximately 10 minutes’ drive from the airport itself, offering affordable, long-term parking that’s ideal if you’re travelling on a budget.

Valet Parking
Our Valet Parking service is ideal if you’re looking for one of the fastest routes to the check-in desks. Simply drop off your car in the Valet Parking Car Park, which is located next to car park 3. We’ll take care of your vehicle until your return date, when it will be waiting for you when you step off your flight.

Heading to the airport on two wheels? There’s a dedicated parking area for motorbikes in Car Park 2. The car park is signposted on our access roads. Simply follow the signs to Car Park 2 and take the first left after the entry barriers. You will see a designated sheltered area for motorcycles.

Please do not park motorbikes in other car parking spaces as you may be charged the full parking rate. Please note that anchor points are not available and that for security reasons, motorcycles will be removed if not parked in the designated areas.
