Long term parking

Just a short distance from the terminal, our long term parking offers value for longer stays and can save you some money for daily stays. Parking spaces are not pre-allocated so you can park in any available space. A complimentary bus operates 24 hours, 7 days a week from the long term car park to the main terminal and back.

Please note: The Long Term bus is not set up for baby car seating. You should contact the Airport on (04) 801 0639 to make alternative arrangements.

Accessing the long term car park

The long term car park is located at the southern end of the airport on Freight Drive. If you’re coming from the south coast, take the first turn from Moa Point Road onto Stewart Duff Drive. Then take the first left onto Freight Drive and follow the signs.

If you’re entering the airport from the city, enter through the left hand entry lanes by pulling a ticket at the entry gates. Drive past the Golf Club and when you reach the exit barriers at the Southern end, insert your ticket and continue south 600m along Stewart Duff Drive. Turn right into Freight Drive. The car park will be on your left. Licence Plate Recognition will come into effect when you get to your designated car park entry.


Payment can be made by credit card or paywave at the barrier arm as you leave the car park. With cash or EFTPOS at pay stations or Parking Services.


We have recently installed Licence Plate Recognition for online bookings. Upon arrival at the Long Term entry barrier your plate will be scanned for recognition of booking and a ticket will be issued automatically. The barrier arm will lift once you have taken your ticket from the machine. Keep the ticket as a back-up for your booking.

When leaving your plate will again be scanned as you exit the car park, and if there are no outstanding charges the barrier will lift and you’re good to go! If not, you will need to insert your ticket.

Please make sure you read your booking confirmation for further information and instructions.

Important Information

If you have any issues at any point, please use the intercom for assistance, do not insert your credit card as this may result in additional charges.
