Drop-off areas are located directly outside the terminal building at departures level. So, you can pull up right outside, where you can touch down just long enough to unload luggage.
From mid June, Manchester Airport is introducing a tariff for dropping off at the airport. All passengers can use our free drop off area, from which a shuttle bus will transport you free of charge to your terminal. Alternatively, you can choose to be dropped off directly outside the terminals and train station. The charge for this is £3 for five minutes and £4 for 10 minutes.

There are different parking options available depending on which terminal you’re visiting. Multi-Storey car parks are available at all three terminals, or you can head straight to the arrivals car park if you’re picking someone up from Terminal 1 or 3.
