Making your airport experience better:
How it works: The Adelaide Airport Parking program has been designed to simplify and reward the way frequent FIFO workers travel through the airport.
- Registered employers distribute parking access cards to the eligible employees within the organisation.
- Members of the program will use their parking access card to enter and exit the nominated Adelaide Airport Car Park. Cardholders will not be charged on exit.
- Adelaide Airport will provide a monthly Parking Activity Statement to the Employer with the usage of each access card.
- The employer may then apply the accrued parking cost per access card as a pre-tax adjustment to the employee’s salary payment. This results in significant parking costs savings for each access cardholder.

FIFO Parking Program FAQs:
How does the Program work?
The Adelaide Airport FIFO Parking Program provides organisations and their employees with the opportunity to salary sacrifice eligible parking at Adelaide Airport and therefore access significant savings on vehicle parking costs.
How does salary sacrifice work?
Salary sacrifice is an arrangement by an employer and employee where costs incurred by the employee are deducted from an employee’s salary before tax is calculated. This reduces the tax paid by the employee, providing a material cost saving compared to paying for services using income after-tax.
What is eligible parking at Adelaide Airport?
Parking at Adelaide Airport is eligible for savings if the primary place of employment of the parker while the vehicle is at Adelaide Airport is remoted outside of Adelaide (e.g. regional SA / interstate / international).
How much does the Program cost?
The program is complimentary with no ongoing costs.
Is eligible parking under the program subject to Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT)
Eligible parking under the program is not subject to FBT.
Can I sign up for the program myself?
The Adelaide Airport FIFO Parking Program is available to companies only and is not available to individuals, sole traders or partnerships at this stage.
Are there benefits for my employer?
Yes – employers may be able to reduce their payroll tax and FBT liabilities for parking under the program.
