There are several short term parking zones at the international airport that you can use for pickups and drop-offs.

The zones permit you to park your car free of charge for around 3 minutes, to allow the passengers to load and unload their luggage.
After the time limit is over, the parking charges are applied. Hence, to park for longer periods, it is advised by the airport management to use the P11 and P33 parking zones, which are also near the main airport building.

All the parking lots, P1 to P7, which are in front of the terminals A, B & C charge the same one-hour fee.
The parking fee for one hour is €4, with upward charges as the time parked in the zone increases. The airport management allows you to pre-book your parking spaces, as the airport has heavy traffic.
