Coming soon!

Edinburgh Airport is pleased to share our parking plans for 2019.

A project, known in-house as 'CAR DROP'*, will combine the advantages of a traditional Meet & Greet service with all the benefits and convenience of Valet parking.

'CAR DROP' will be located opposite the Terminal building and will provide an additional 3000 spaces, enough to accommodate Edinburgh Airport’s growing passenger demand up to 2021.

The aim of 'CAR DROP' is simple. Provide an exciting car parking experience by using technology to enhance the customer journey, from arrival to departure.

1. Photo-booth.

Arrival: Drive through one the photo-booths, which will take 360-degree images of your vehicle, in less than 10 seconds, then you will be advised what lane to park in.

2. Self-check-in and key drop building

Once you’ve parked, head over to the purpose-built check-in building. Simply scan your booking confirmation from our app, add your vehicle registration, or booking reference. Confirm your return flight details, attach the key tag to your keys, drop them off and go.

While you are away, we will park your car in a secure location at Edinburgh Airport for the duration of your trip.

3. Car collection

Collecting your keys is simple.

Similar to the check-in process, scan your booking confirmation at one of the Amazon-style lockers. A door will illuminate, open it and collect your keys and you’ll be advised what retrun bay your car is parked in.

'CAR DROP' will be available to book from Spring 2019 and will be ready to receive passengers from July 2019.

* ‘CAR DROP’ is a working title, and the actual name may differ at the time of booking.
