P2 Drop-Off Zone
For some visitors, a simple ‘pash n dash’ farewell is all you need to say goodbye to loved ones or friends.
The P2 is located directly outside the departure terminal and is available for private passenger drop-offs only.
The drop-off zone is not for use by commercial operators.
P20 Express Parking
Pick-Up & Drop-ff
There’s no need to rush in and out of the airport as we offer priority parking for visits less than 20 minutes in the designated pick-up/drop-off parking bays within terminal car park A. These are located nearest the terminal and signposted P20. Bonus - the first 20 minutes is FREE!
If you’ve parked for less than 20 minutes, there’s no need to validate your ticket – just insert it into the barrier arm machine when exiting.
If you plan to stay longer than 20 minutes, please park in non P20 spaces and validate your ticket at the pay station then insert it into the barrier arm machine when exiting.
