Dropping off and Picking Up

A designated Pick Up and Drop Off area is located within close proximity of the terminal. This area shares the same space as the P120 Car Park and is controlled by an entry barrier. To enter the area pull a ticket at the barrier and drive into the pick up & drop off zones. If you stay for less than 15 minutes you can use the same ticket at the exit barrier to exit for free. If you stay longer than 15 minutes, parking charges will apply. 


Cycling to the airport is a fantastic option for some travellers. The Willis Legal Bikeport, situated within the Main Car Park is a purpose-built shipping container with secure parking and charging for bikes. 

A Shared Space

The forecourt area located between the P120 and the terminal is an architecturally designed area that allows pedestrians and vehicles to share the space. Only approved vehicles, such as taxis and shuttles are authorised to use the lane and must give way to pedestrians at all times.
