Arrival procedure

Please check your booking confirmation for details.

Park in one of the arrivals bays and make your way to the covered waiting area. Here you will find Airparks' new Autopilot self check-in kiosks.

You should bring a copy of your booking confirmation with you. The system will guide you through the check-in process - it's extremely easy, and if you do need help, there will always be staff on hand.

Once you have checked in, all you need to do is drop your car key into the secured box, and board the bus. Your car will be parked for you while you transfer to the airport.


Departure procedure

Please check your booking confirmation for details.

You'll need to catch the shuttle bus back to Airparks. Follow the walkway and the zebra crossings across the drop-off lanes in front of the airport, and make your way down the steps to the Airparks bus stop and shelter.

Once you're back at the car park, head to the check-out building to the left of the bus shelter. At one of the machines, scan the barcode on your key collection ticket. The machine will tell you where your car is parked, and your car keys will be returned to you. Then you can just collect your car and head home.

If you have any problems, just press the assistance button - there will always be a member of staff on hand to help you.

Or if you want to head home straightaway, book our Airparks Return Greet package and have your car brought to the terminal for you. You can book this on our website now, or when you drop your car off at the car park before your holiday.

If you're going to come back early, please let Airparks know, if you can.



Airparks is fenced and floodlit and has 24-hour patrols and CCTV.
This car park has been awarded the Park Mark, a national security award accredited by the Association of Chief Police Officers.

"Waited too long for bus to come home. Three members of staff at airport but not one helped or made sure customers were on the bus just chatted amongst themselves.

When arrived at park machine not working but keys despatched quickly but then member of staff talking and had to get out of car to ask him to open barrier.

Miserable driver out and back journeys."
