FAQs about parking at our airport

Our airport has five car parks, all close to the terminal.

Premium – directly outside the terminal (undercover)
Short Stay 1 – directly outside the terminal
Short Stay 2 – 100 metres from the terminal (2-3 min walk)
Long Stay 1 – 200 metres from the terminal (3-4 min walk)
Long Stay Saver – 400 metres from the terminal (7-8 min walk or free shuttle)

We currently do not have an online booking system. The introduction of an online system was delayed due to Covid-19 and we are expecting a system to be introduced by the end of the year.
