But, luckily, Melbourne airport has all the facilities necessary to accommodate hassle-free travel. There are free waiting zones, for those who are collecting passengers, as well as abundant drop off spaces at the forecourt of each terminal. In addition to that, there’s plenty in the way of car parks for short and long term travellers. Then, to top it all off, there are the 1, 10, and 20 minute waiting zones. With all those spaces on offer, you needn’t worry about arriving a little early!
