Arrival procedure

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 wait for the machine to read your number plate. This can take up to a minute.

If nothing happens, please press the button marked "assistance" so you can speak to a member of staff through the intercom.

Please don't insert your credit or debit card into the barrier at any point or you will be charged again for your parking, and don't press the ticket button, as this will stop you being able to gain entry.

From there, just walk to the terminal which should just take a minute or two.

Return procedure

Upon your return to the airport, please walk back to your car and drive to the exit barrier. The barrier will lift to let you out (this can take up to a minute) but if it doesn't, please press the button marked "assistance" and a member of staff will let you out.

Please don't insert your credit or debit card into the barrier at any point or you will be charged again for your parking. We advise that you have a copy of your booking confirmation with you.


The short stay car park has CCTV, entry and exit barriers and holds the Park Mark secure parking award.

Can anyone believe there is not one sign directing you to the short stay car park 1? We drove from one end of the airport area to the other and even asked one of their own shuttle bus drivers who had no idea. On our flight we met several who found the same problem. The first sin we saw that actually said short stay 1 was at the barrier to enter the car park. It really is beyond belief.
