Hawke's Bay Airport has three car parks for the convenience of passengers and visitors. Car parks cannot be booked in advance. To enter a car park, press the button at the entrance to obtain a ticket and raise the barrier arm. Take the ticket with you. On your return from your trip, take the ticket to a Pay Station inside the main terminal building to pay, return to your car, and use the paid ticket to raise the barrier arm and exit the car park.
Prepayment cards can be obtained from the Car Park Office, and the Airport Company offices on level 1 of the main terminal building. Take your card to a pay station and prepay $50. That credit is deducted from your card each time you pay for parking. Remember to top up the card to ensure there is sufficient credit to pay for your parking. Additional amounts of $50 can be added at any pay station inside the main terminal at any time.
The Main Car Park is intended for passengers flying out for shorter periods. The charge is $2 per hour, up to a maximum of $10 per 24 hours.
The secured car park is fully fenced and is locked after the last flight in the evening and reopened prior to the first flight in the morning. It is intended for passengers requiring extra security and those expecting to be away for long periods up to a maximum of two months. The charge is $12 per 24 hour.
The visitor car park is for people meeting or seeing passengers off who intend to stay at the airport for up to two hours. The first 15 minutes are free, then $2 per hour thereafter.
There is an area directly in front of the terminal to drop off passengers or baggage before using a car park or leaving the airport. Parking is not permitted in this area for more than 5 minutes.
You can pay for your car parking at one of the four pay stations in the terminal using coins, notes, eftpos or a credit card (Visa or Mastercard).
The car park office is situated outside the terminal, in the corner of the carpark to the left of the terminal. Staff are available to deal with parking queries or problems.
Our car parks are designed for standard sized cars and small vans. A limited number of larger vehicles can be accommodated by prior arrangement.
Infringement notices will be issued for overstaying or parking other than in the designated car parks and offending vehicles may be towed away at the vehicle owner's cost.
