Airport & Scillonian Ferry Parking

You can’t take your car with you; leave it here

Parking at Land’s End Airport

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. If you’re not sure whether the car park will be open, please give our travel centre a call on 01736 334220. There’s also an out-of-hours number for emergencies on 01736 753129.

When you arrive, please take a car parking ticket at the entrance barrier, park your car and make your way to Check-In. You can either pay on your return at the machine opposite baggage reclaim or at Check-In. To make things as easy as possible, you can choose to pay for your parking online when you book. On your return to Land’s End Airport, pre paid passengers will need to take a ticket at the entrance barrier and proceed to Check-In for validation. Keep the ticket safe because you’ll need it to exit the car park.

Parking at Land’s End Airport is a great, convenient way to start your holiday — but it’s not suitable if you’re returning to the mainland aboard Scillonian III, in which case you’d be better parking in Penzance and using our shuttle bus.

Disabled parking is in the south car park. Spaces are allocated with a disabled parking sign and are approximately 50 metres from the terminal building. Please display your disabled car parking badge. (Disabled parking is not free)

Please note: Vehicles and their contents are parked at the owner’s risk and no liability is accepted for any loss or damage to the vehicle or contents or persons, however caused.

Parking at Newquay Airport

Cornwall Airport Newquay has two car parks. If you’re departing, choose the West Car Park, to your right as you approach the terminal. The East Car Park serves arrivals and Car Hire Returns. Keep the ticket from the barrier safely with you; pay stations are in the Arrivals Hall and outside the main entrance to the West Car Park. Payment can be made by using cash, credit and debit cards before returning to your vehicle. Alternatively, you can buy car parking online, at least a day in advance, at Both car parks at Newquay Airport have drop-off points and allow 10 minutes of free parking.
