Changes to Parking, Roadworks and Masks at Darwin International Airport

The 2-minute express drop off/pick up zones at Darwin Airport have changed to immediate set down/pick up only. Vehicles will not be able to wait for passengers in these zones. Free 15-minute parking continues to be available in the short-term car park. We recommend all travellers allow additional time to travel to and from the airport.


Masks are no longer required in NT airport terminals.
