Arrival procedure

Please check your booking confirmation for details.

We operate an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system so it is essential you have entered the correct vehicle registration when making your booking.

We recommend that you bring a copy of your confirmation with you.

On arrival, please drive up to the entry barrier and your car registration will be read. A ticket will be automatically issued to you. Make your way to any available space and park your car. Keep this ticket safe as it will be needed on your return.

If a ticket is not automatically dispensed, please press the “Assistance” button and explain to the operator that your vehicle has not been recognised. Please confirm your booking details, including your car registration. A ticket will then be issued. Keep this ticket safe as it will be needed on your return.


Return procedure

Please check your booking confirmation for details.

Upon your return to the airport, proceed to your car and drive to the exit barrier. Please insert your ticket to leave and the barrier should raise automatically.

If the barrier does not raise and/or asks for payment, please press the intercom button for assistance and quote your pre-booking reference number.



The car park has CCTV and regular security patrols. This car park has been awarded the Park Mark for safer parking. The Park Mark means that you are parking in an area that has been vetted by the police to make sure that the site has measures in place to create a safer environment.



The Airport is insured for damage caused by their own negligence but will not normally accept responsibility for the acts of a third party. Full details are available from the airport on request.

"The vehicle recognition was not working both on arrival and departure. Left waiting to enter too long. Too long to fix problem. We were away 2.5 weeks."

"1) The distance from the car park was described as "a short walk". This was misleading as it would prove a difficult walk for an elderly or disabled person carrying luggage.
2) Whilst the park was well signed from the car, it proved difficult to locate on foot: ie from the arrivals building back to the car park.
3) Given the lack of signage, the only way I could see of returning back to the car was via the main road within the airport. This proved quite hazardous as it was rough in places and there were no causeways on which to walk.
4) The only way I could find of gaining access back into the car park on foot was through the barriers used for access by the cars. This could be dangerous as well as difficult to negotiate, walking over raised kerbs between the entrance and exit lanes of the car park."
