The easiest way to pick up travellers at the domestic and international terminal.
The Wait Zone helps make pick ups a lot easier. Two areas are located just 2 minutes from both terminals.
There are over 50 spaces available at international and over 30 spaces available at domestic where you can wait, free of charge for 30 minutes.

Pick up your passenger
To get there:
Simply follow The Wait Zone signs from the pick-up/drop-off area or head straight to the entrance. The entrance for The Wait Zone international is on Tahinga Lane and the entrance for The Wait Zone domestic is on Laurance Stevens Drive.
When travellers call or text you to say they are ready to be picked up, simply exit The Wait Zone and drive around to the pick-up/drop-off area – just 2 minutes away.
Waits longer than 30 minutes will be charged at the same rate as car park E for internaitonal or car park K for domestic, and will require a debit or credit card payment on exit. Please view our tariffs for the current costs.
