If you’re dropping someone off at the airport, you can do so for free at our free drop off point. The free drop off point is on Thorley Lane, next to the JetParks 1 car park and clearly signposted from the M56. From here, passengers will be able to take a free and frequent shuttle bus to their terminal.
If you want to drop passengers off directly outside their terminal or at the Station, a charge will apply. The fee for this is £5 for five minutes and £6 for 10 minutes and is payable at the exit barrier. An overstay charge of £25.00 will apply after 10 minutes. Special arrangements apply for Blue Badge holders, local residents and Private Hire operators.
If you’re picking someone up from the airport, there is a Multi-Storey car park available at Terminal 3, or a Short Stay/pick up car park for Terminal 1 and the train station.
Passengers can be picked up from these car parks with a charge of £6.00 for 30 minutes or £12 for 1 hour.
If getting all your passengers and luggage to the airport in one car is going to be a squeeze, why not let us get your bags to your plane for you? In partnership with AirPortr, Manchester Airport can come to your house and collect your bags at a time that suits you, check them in and seal them in front of you, and then take them to your plane. More room in the car and a hassle-free trip through the airport when you arrive.
