Dropping off at Aberdeen Airport

Dropping off and picking up passengers from Aberdeen Airport

Whether you’re dropping off a loved one for a trip, or picking up a friend after their holiday, there are various free and paid-for parking options available at Aberdeen International Airport.


Aberdeen Airport Express Drop off options

ABZ - Parking Icon - Tick

Express Drop Off

Aberdeen International Airport's Express Drop-off areas are located directly outside the main terminal building in the upper forecourt. So, you can pull up right outside, where you can touch down just long enough to unload luggage. An easy and quick option. This can be a very congested area and is only suited for a conveniently close and quick drop off. 

Drop Off is charged at £4 to stay for up to 10 minutes. Drivers wishing to use parking facilities for more than 10 minutes are advised to use the Short Stay car park.

Passengers with electric vehicles will be able to access the Express Drop-off facility directly opposite the terminal free of charge for the first 10 minutes. Electric vehicle users must pre-register for free access for the first 10 minutes here.

Keen to meet your passenger in the arrivals area? Our Short Stay car parks are located just minutes away from the terminal. You can park, meet your friends or family, and help them transport their luggage back to the car.

While you’re waiting, take advantage of our free WiFi and keep an eye on flight information to find out when your passenger is due to land.

We recommend that the Short Stay car park is used for dropping off passengers who require extra assistance.  Please see the section below regarding blue badge holders.

If drivers choose to stay in the Express Drop-off for longer than 10 minutes, they will pay a premium charge on exit. 

Payment can be made at the forecourt exit barrier using correct change or credit/debit cards, contactless technology is also in place (there is no additional fee for using cards). A change machine is available within the shelter located on the forecourt.

Long Stay Pick Up & Drop Off

If close proximity to the airport isn’t essential, our free Long Stay pick-up option could be more suited to your needs.

Pull into our Long-stay car park and you can leave your car here free of charge for up to 30 minutes. You can either wait here for your passenger or you can hop on the free shuttle bus to meet them at the terminal.
