Those wishing to pay at the airport can do so inside the terminal, as free one-hour drive-in parking will also be available. by going to the information desk inside the Isle of Man Airport building, providing your vehicle registration and using a payment card. It will not be possible to pay at the counter in cash.
The new system replaces barriers that have been broken for some time.
Anyone wishing to use the app must download RingGo which is available through Apple or Google Play.
They can then find a spot for their vehicle, enter the number of the location where it is parked on their phone or device, and pay for the required duration.
If additional time is required due to delayed flight etc., additional payment can be made online.
Motorists whose vehicle is parked in car parks before Tuesday May 24 will have four weeks to make alternative arrangements.
