It only takes 5-10 minutes by bus to get to the terminal from our Long Stay South car park. It’s a great choice if you’re travelling for more than four days.

Buses run 24 hours a day and depart every 10 to 15 minutes, making it a suitable option for all travellers, even if you’re on a night flight.

A great option for those who value time and convenience, it’s our closest self-parking option. Pull into a designated bay, keep your keys and walk into the terminal.
