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.
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 and is payable at the exit barrier.
Please note, a “10 minutes - no return within 30 minutes” restriction is in operation. Please do not exceed 10 minutes or re-enter any of the drop-off areas for at least 30 minutes, to avoid an automatic £25 re-circulation fee. Should you need to return within the restricted period for any reason, we recommend use of the pick-up area. Tariffs and Terms and Conditions are available at entry to each drop off location.
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.
From 28 November 2018 until April 2019 the location of the Terminal 1 Arrivals car park will move to the other side of the Skylink walkway. This is to allow an improved Arrivals car park to be built. See updated directions below, or view a map of the area showing the location of the new car park.
