Land’s End Airport has plenty of parking for all passengers; its two barrier-operated car parks are open to serve every Skybus departure and arrival.

Car Park opening hours

Monday to Saturday, all year round (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day), the car parks open at 07:00 until half an hour after the last Skybus flight – when the gates are locked to ensure security.

To make things as easy as possible, we suggest you pay for your parking online when booking your flight. When you arrive, please take a car parking ticket at the entrance barrier, keep the this safe as you’ll need it to exit the car park on your return. Park your car and make your way to Check-In. On your return to Land’s End Airport, pre paid passengers should proceed to Check-In to have the ticket validated, this will allow you to exit the car park. If you haven’t paid in advance you can pay on your return at the machine opposite baggage reclaim, if you have any difficulty in using the machine please go to Check-In in the terminal.
