I have luggage, do I drop it at the terminal first?

That way you can check in and drop off your luggage, and any passengers, prior to parking with us. Then maybe it’s time for a game of paper, scissors, rock to see who gets to park the car in the Hawthorne Drive Carpark and enjoy the 15-minute walk back to the Queenstown Airport.
