There are special drop-off points on our forecourts for passengers for Blue Badge holders or passengers who've booked assistance at the airport. There are also help points located nearby in case you need extra assistance.
Drop off charges apply in the Drop off Zones. Blue badge holders are exempt from these charges but you must register your details in advance. Learn more about blue badge exemptions.
Blue badge holder pick-up
If you are meeting a passenger who holds a blue badge you can pick them up from both the South and North Terminal drop-off zones.
Please note you will need to display the blue badge on your vehicle at all times.
To help us keep our forecourts flowing freely, we ask passengers to arrange for their vehicle to pick them up only when they have reached the special assistance waiting area on the forecourt, close to the drop-off zone. Drivers will only be able to wait for a short time on the forecourt.
Alternatively, you can wait for your passenger in either the short stay car parks or take advantage of up to two hours free parking in our long stay car parks.
PRM pick up for pre-booked long stay parking
If you have parked in our long stay car park and have travelled with a person with reduced mobility, you can pick them up from the short stay car park near the terminal, free of charge.
Before exiting the long stay car park, please go to the customer service office by the exit and staff will let you know what to do.
