How does The Park and Fly Concept Work?
You want everything to run smoothly when you are heading to the airport, with park and fly services you can get away easily and on time, every time. You simply drop your car off with the valet style parking and catch a shuttle bus to your terminal. Your car is parked for you safely in a secure car park with 24/7 security surveillance. You can go on your holiday or to your business meeting safe in the knowledge your car is being looked after and will be there when you get back. You don’t have to deal with catching a taxi, bus or train home.
Park and fly is a simple to use facility that will be located close to major airports – for your convenience.
It is recommended for passengers flying from the domestic terminal they arrive at the airport at least one hour before their flight and two hours before a flight from the International terminal.
When using park and fly allow yourself an extra 20 minutes for your airport parking check in and then the shuttle bus ride to the terminal. This is simply to allow for any unexpected delays.
There is a height restriction on vehicles, with the facility only being able to cater for vehicles 2 meters high or less – including aerials and roof racks.
While you do not need to make a booking, it is recommended to reserve a spot in a park and fly’s facility to avoid disappointment. As you can imagine there are times where parking at the airport is in high demand – school and public holidays, Christmas etc. If the parking building is full, only those who have made a booking will be able to leave their car.
Booking a spot is simple and fast, just head to the website and go to the Book Now page. Booking online will also save you time when you check in.
If you are travelling with small children, that is not a problem, children over the age of 7 will be allowed to ride in any of the shuttle buses that operate frequently. If you have children under the age of 7, they may need to be restrained in a suitable and approved child restraint. Two of the park and fly shuttle buses are equipped with child restraints suitable for children aged between 1 and 4.
There are also E-type booster seats that can be used for children in the 4-7 age group or 14 to 26-kilo weight range.
Due to the fact that the number of shuttles equipped with child restraint seats is usually limited, it’s suggested to drop children under the age of 7 off, with an accompanying adult at the terminal first, before dropping your vehicle off.
If you have anyone in a wheelchair, please note that the shuttle buses may not be equipped for wheelchairs. It’s recommended you drop passengers in a wheelchair off at the terminal first, with an accompanying adult if necessary and then head to the park and fly facility.
Park and fly services are perfect for the businessman or woman who regularly travels, from overnight to a week and wants the convenience of having their car there for them when they return from a trip. This system is also perfect for anyone who has to drive a distance to reach the airport if you book your car in before you get there, you know you are assured of a parking space, and you can leave your car and enjoy your time away knowing that your car is safe. You can opt to park your car in a nearby street and walk to the airport; you just don’t know if your car will be there when you get back, or if it has been damaged.
Parking safely at the airport is the only way to enjoy peace of mind while you are away. These services take a lot of hassle out of going away and are the only way you can be sure your car will be right where you left it when you return.
