Types of Parking at Nelson Airport

There are two different types of parking at Nelson Airport, independent car parks and on-site car parks. These differ in their proximity to the airport building, in their ownership and management, and price. Independent car parks are operated by private companies and are located outside of the airport zone, whereas on-site car parks are run by the airport itself and situated closer to the terminal. As a general rule, independent car parks are more competitively priced as they’re a little further away. To make up for the distance, most if not all, offer complimentary shuttle transfers in both directions. 


Car Parks with Shuttle Service

Shuttle parking icon

Usually called shuttle parking or ‘park and ride’, is one of the most economical ways to park your car when departing from the airport. All you have to do is book your space in advance online and then drive to the parking facility before your flight.

You’ll then be asked to check-in your car by showing car park staff your Flyparks booking confirmation, and then board the shuttle bus to the airport. You’ll receive help with your luggage, and further instructions on where to meet the driver on your return to Nelson. Using Nelson Airport shuttle services are often the cheapest and most convenient option for airport parking!

Arrival: On the day of departure, simply drive to the address of the chosen car park. You can park your car here and you will then be taken to the airport as quickly as possible in one of the shuttle buses from the parking lot. 

Return: On the day of return, after landing, contact the car park by phone, then a shuttle bus will be driven to the airport to pick you up and take you back to the car park.
