It should be noted that limited waiting time is strictly enforced. If you have to park for more than a few minutes you should use the Short Stay car parks.

Short and Long Stay airport parking is available at all terminals. With covered walkways from the short stay car parks and regular shuttles running between the long stay parking areas, the transition from car to airport should be seamless. Please note, that if you plan to use any option other than Short Stay, it is best to book in advance.Check out the latest parking deals at Airport Parking Shop to ensure you get the best price!
