ADL Arrivals

How early should I arrive at Adelaide Airport? 

For domestic flights out of Adelaide Airport, we advise arriving at least 2 hours before domestic departures and 3 hours before international departures. 


Where are international arrivals & departures at Adelaide Airport? 

International Adelaide Airport arrivals will occur at the international arrivals gate, on the north side of the terminal, on Level 0. Because Adelaide Airport only has one terminal, T1, both international and domestic flights will depart and arrive at this terminal. 


Where to pick up & drop off passengers? 

You can pick up and drop off passengers between the terminal car park and the terminal plaza. Upon entering the airport, follow the signs directing you to the pick-up/drop-off zones. 

Please be advised that you can not leave your vehicle at any time during a pick-up or drop-off, nor stop in the right-hand lanes. If your passenger has not arrived yet, you can park at the terminal car park for 0 - 15 minutes for $6.00.  


When to arrive at Adelaide Airport for an international flight? 

Flyparks recommends arriving at Adelaide Airport at least 3 hours before an international flight. Doing so gives you enough time to check in, check your baggage, get through security, and have a bit of time to eat or relax

How do I find parking at Adelaide Airport? 

Finding Adelaide Airport parking is a seamless process with Flyparks. Simply select the dates you will need parking for and press search. You will then be presented with available off-site car park options that are only a short shuttle drive away from the terminals. Flyparks only partners with reputable, affordable car parks you can trust. You don’t have to take it from us, though, we advise checking user reviews before booking.

Should you wish to park with an on-site provider, we recommend consulting the official airport page’s website. However, we would like to inform you that on-site, official airport car parks tend to be of higher costs due to their proximity. For a low-cost parking option, consider Andrews's Airport Parking. The company has hundreds of positive reviews on its excellent service, affordability, and convenience. Not to mention, its car park is equipped with CCTV around the facility, as well as entrance and exit barriers, and high perimeter fencing.  You can book Andrews Airport Parking at Adelaide Airport on Flyparks.
