Take the stress off by planning ahead.

Darwin International Airport has designated areas to pick up and drop off passengers. To keep traffic flowing, these zones are available for immediate drop off/pick up only, with a maximum wait time of 2 minutes. The driver of the vehicle must remain with their vehicle. Vehicles left unattended will be subject to an immediate fine and may be towed away.


  • If you think you’ll be longer than two minutes, make the most of our short-stay car park where you can park under 10 minutes for free.
  • Always allow additional time to travel to and from the airport.
  • Drop off: Say goodbye in your own time by parking in one of our 3 car parks and heading into the terminal with family or friends. 
  • Pick-up: Plan ahead and ask the person you’re picking up to text or call you when they're ready to go. You can also use our flight tracker for real-time arrival info.
