  • Short Term Parking is suited to shorter hourly periods, and is closer to the check-in terminal. It’s also available in every terminal at the airport.

If you’d like to pick up or drop off someone, there’s also a few different options to choose from:

  • Pick-up and drop-off bays—these are at the front of the terminal, and are designed to quickly pick up a passenger and leave again.
  • Park and wait—you can park for up to an hour for free in the Long Term Car Park, and then head to the pick-up bay at the front of the terminal when ready. Or if you need a little longer, you can pay $10 for up to four hours.
  • Express pick up and drop-off—T2 has a five-minute waiting bay area where you can easily pick up passengers.
