Purple Parking recommends that you allow 45 minutes for checking in and transferring to the airport.
On arrival, keep in the left-hand lane and drive through the automatic barrier. Park in one of the arrival bays and make note of your lane number. Go to reception and present them with your printed confirmation email (or quote your booking reference). You will also need to provide your car and flight details. After checking in, put your car keys in the red key box with the same number as the lane you parked in, then catch the transfer bus to the terminals. Please note that Purple Parking can only accept car keys and immobilisers; all other items must be removed from keyring.
South Terminal: Proceed out of the terminal and go down the ramps to the lower level. Turn left and proceed to bus stop 7 or 8.
North Terminal: Stay on the same level. Upon exiting the terminal, turn right and follow the signs for Buses. Proceed to the bus stop indicated on the reverse of your parking ticket - normally bus stop 6 or 7.
Once you return to the car park, please have your parking ticket ready to present at reception.
Purple Parking operates transfers to both terminals that take approximately 13 minutes and run every 20 minutes.
