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 Tuesday 10th July, 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.
The changes that have been introduced only impact those dropping-off. The process for picking-up passengers remains the same – passengers can be picked-up in the arrivals car parks and multi-storey car parks with a charge of £4 for 30 minutes. We will have staff on hand to direct those dropping-off and picking-up to the right places.
It isn't possible to pick up outside the train station; the Terminal 1 Arrivals car park is just a few minutes' walk away and should be used instead.
