Picking up

Before you leave, double check the flight is on time. Make sure you leave at least 30-40 minutes after landing for passengers to clear passport control, baggage reclaim and Customs. If you’re picking someone up by car you should use a car park. Car park prices

Dropping off

Do I want to go into the terminal?

You can drop-off passengers in the designated areas on the terminal forecourts.

In the North Terminal, the drop-off zone is on the lower level forecourt between the Sofitel and the multi-storey car park. In the South Terminal, passengers can also be dropped off on the lower level. Both routes are signposted from the approach roads.

Alternatively, for a longer goodbye park in one of our short stay car parks located right next to departures.
