Long Term Parking

Our long term parking offers value for longer stays and can save you some money for daily stays (note that stays shorter than three days are available by drive-up only, if space is available). Parking spaces are not pre-allocated so you can park in any available space.

Long Term Shuttle

A complimentary shuttle operates 7 days a week approximately every 15 minutes from the long term car park to the main terminal and back. The shuttle runs during terminal opening hours and services all domestic and international flights.

Please note, during weekends the shuttle has a 30-minute break at 0930hrs and 1730hrs, before resuming approximately 15-minute intervals.

The terminal stop is located on the ground floor of the main terminal outside of door H and the rental car kiosks. The long term shuttle stop is located outside of the long term car park just to the north of the entry.

The Long Term Shuttle is not set up for baby car seating. You should contact the Airport on (04) 385 5143 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 main entry gates. Drive past the Golf Club and when you reach the exit barriers at the Southern end, insert your ticket and continue south 900m along Stewart Duff Drive. Turn right into Freight Drive. The Long Term car park will be on your left.

Online booking

Upon arrival at the Long Term entry barrier your plate will be scanned for recognition of booking and the barrier will open automatically – online bookings for Long Term are now ticketless.

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!


Payment can be made by credit card or payWave at the barrier arm as you leave the car park.  Or with EFTPOS at the pay station located in the Long Term waiting room area.  The Long Term Car Park is cashless.
