Disabled Parking Spaces

Disabled parking at Cardiff can be easily found with accessible routes into the terminal clearly signposted.

These are located in all the car parks, located near a special assistance shelter and are easily accessible. An intercom call point system is linked directly to the assistance desk for your convenience which you will find in the special assistance shelters.

We have 120 bays in total but if for any reason these are full then contact the car park team via one of the many intercoms located at the entrance/exit barriers. They will then assist to find a suitable parking bay for you.

We also offer a mini bus collection service for each of the car parks which can be pre-booked or requested on arrival by contacting the special assistance desk. You can do this by contacting the desk on 01446 729329 or via one the call points located in each of the assistance shelters. The mini bus is designed to allow for wheelchair or scooter access. This service is also available for when you return.

If you need assistance throughout your journey we recommend that you pre-book with your airline or travel agent at least 48 hours in advance. But if you haven’t done this, we’ll do our very best to help – just go to a help point with your flight details to hand.

A shuttle bus service is available for passengers which is fully operational around flight times. The bus stops directly outside the main terminal entrance.
