IAPA Press Section

The Independent Airport Parking Association (IAPA) is the trade association representing the UK’s leading park-and-ride and meet-and-greet operators.


Our purpose is to raise standards in the airport parking services industry so that customers can book airport parking with confidence.


We also seek to ensure that the role of the independent airport parking industry is fully understood and properly reflected in the development plans for UK airports and their associated surface access strategies and, more broadly, that the industry's voice is heard in policy debates of importance to our members.


IAPA members own and operate car parks with more than 30,000 parking spaces and they park around one million cars every year. 


Alongside their own parking services, some IAPA members will also act as consolidators and sell parking services provided by carefully selected operators across the UK.


Badge of confidence

IAPA members guarantee to park customers’ cars in a secure facility that is authorised for airport parking. All IAPA members carry full insurance cover for both customers and their car.


Where IAPA members sell parking services provided by other operators, they will clearly display the details of that operator and will only work with companies that use secure facilities that are authorized for airport parking.



The organization was established in 2002 as IAPRA, initially to represent airport park-and-ride companies. It was renamed IAPA in 2011 to include the growing meet-and-greet segment of the market.


Our members

Our members include some of the UK’s leading meet & greet and park & ride providers including Airparks and APH, plus small airport specialists such as I Love Meet & Greet and Sentinel. See our full list of members here.
