Hi John - you may be both comforted and exasperated to hear that things have not much changed since your last attempt to rendezvous at Heraklion Airport. There are indeed still two Arrivals doors - the one at the extreme left ( as you face the building ) that you quite understandably waited at last time, and another strategically placed about fifty yards along to the right ... just far enough to ensure you cannot "straddle" the two in order not to miss that wonderful and planned moment when yourself and your guests see each other as they emerge into the public area. Advisable to ask one of the staff manning the first door whether the flight you await is exiting that entrance - this may or may not yield a definitive answer, or even the correct answer, but is certainly worth a go. Advise your arriving friends that should you not immediately be noticed standing to greet them in the time honoured fashion as they come out, either to text or phone you so that contact can be made. Regarding parking, Altohb is quite correct for a belt and braces option ( and the car park is directly across the road opposite Arrivals ), but as you found before, there is an area for temporary parking along the near side of the road to the right after you go through the small side exit in the perimeter fence close to and opposite Arrivals. You should not encounter any problems parking there, and should be fortunate enough to find a convenient space.
