Whether you’re driving a rental car or if you are a local who is picking up a passenger from the airport, there are many parking facilities that you can use at Dortmund Airport including the following:
The main parking area at Dortmund Airport can be divided into seven different zones, starting from P1 to P7. These are located right outside the Arrivals area. Depending on how long you need to have your car parked, you can pay by the hour or on a per-day basis.
If you need to have your car parked at the airport for longer than one day, you can make reservations for long-term parking. The parking space meant for long-term parking are P1, P2 and P4. You can order your long-term parking tickets online by filling out the form at the Dortmund Airport website. The advantage of getting a long-term parking ticket is that you pay a fixed monthly charge. You can use the ticket to park for as often and you’d like, and as long as you like during the period that the card is valid. There is also no need for you to use the car parking ticket payment machines at the airport. Those with a long-term ticket can also use the shuttle bus car park at no charge.
Since there is a shuttle bus that departs every 20 minutes at Dortmund Airport, there is also a suitable parking lot for them in the area.
Did you know that Dortmund Airport has a Kiss & Fly Zone? This allows private and taxi drivers to use the parking zone free of charge – but only for the first nine minutes. Once you exceed this period, you would have to pay a minimal €1 fee.
In Dortmund Airport, all car parks are provided with spaces suitable for the disabled. For instance, car park P1 is directly next to the terminal building and this is a great entry point for those with mobility problems. If you need travel assistance for disabled parking, it is recommended that you get in touch with the airport in advance.
There are parking spaces specifically designed for women at Dortmund Airport. They are located at the underground level of car park P1, near the entrances to the terminals.
There are parking payment machines at the Arrivals level and at level 0 of the airport. After your payment transaction is done, you are given up to 15 minutes to leave the car park so it is best to look for a payment machine which is nearest your car parking spot. Notes and coins in Euros are accepted as well as credit cards and EC cards. The Dortmund Airport car park is operational 24 hours a day.
