Our Terminal A and B car parks are located just a short stroll from car to terminal. They’re great if you’re time-poor and/or want the convenience of a park-walk-terminal location. Ideal for the business traveller, where time is of the essence, and for shorter-term stays -from a few hours to a few days.

Park and Ride – our most affordable option, conveniently located 15 minutes away by shuttle

For those looking for affordable long-term parking, or those have more time to spend browsing the airport retail and food and beverage offerings, then the airport Park and Ride is the most affordable choice, conveniently located just a 15-minute shuttle ride away from the terminal. TIP: Book online and secure your space ahead of time.

Families – the choice is yours- terminal location for convenience or affordable parking close-by

Depending on your budget and time allowance, families can choose to park close to the terminal for convenience. TIP: Why not drop the family off at the P2 zone first, before heading to the Park and Ride and grabbing the shuttle direct to the door. Win/Win.
