Pick-Up & Drop-Off Zone (Free)


There is a public pick-up and drop-off zone located right outside the terminal building, only available for passengers who are already waiting at the curbside and thus ready to be picked up.

Similarly, if you are a passenger who is ready to jump out of the car and be at the terminal in seconds, you can utilize this pick-up and drop-off zone. No waiting or parking is permitted here, and vehicles may not be left unattended.


Car Parks with Valet Service

Unfortunately, there is no valet parking at Mackay Airport at present.


Short-term Airport Parking Mackay

Short-term parking at Mackay Airport is limited, although not impossible to come by. If you are looking merely for a drop-off / pick- up location, there is an appropriate bay to do so, right outside the terminal building. For a bit of longer waits, you can utilize the Mackay Long Term Car Park or Short Term Car Park for 15 minutes of free parking. 

From 16 minutes - 3 hours, you can park at the long-term car park for $11.00. Similarly, parking between 1-3 hours at the short-term car park will cost you $10.00. For stays of 24 hours, you will find Mackay Airport parking rates start at $30 for the short-term car park and an additional $30 every day thereafter. At the long-term car park, you will find rates starting at $22 for 24 hours, and an additional $22 every day thereafter. 

All of these rates listed are drive-up rates, and therefore can and will differ from online rates booked in advance.
