Manchester - News Update

Changes To Passenger Pick-Up

Manchester Airport is changing the way passengers are picked-up from its three terminals.

From 01 November 2006, people collecting passengers on flights using Terminal 1 will be directed into the short-stay car park, and will no longer be able to collect from outside the terminal building.

Charges for parking in the short stay car parks for less than 30 minutes will be reduced by more than 20% from L2.30 to L1.80. The ten minutes of free parking in the Terminal 1 arrivals car park will no longer be available.

The new system will be implemented at Terminal 3 in December and Terminal 2 in January 2007.

The new procedure enforces the existing road regulations and bylaws of the ‘no waiting’ zones outside the three terminals. Only authorised operational vehicles and permit holders will be allowed into the lanes in close proximity to the terminal buildings.

There are no changes to the procedure for the drop-off of passengers.

Andy Cliffe, car parks commercial director at Manchester Airport, said: “There are restrictions that prevent people from waiting outside the terminal buildings. For safety and security reasons we have decided to enforce these procedures more rigorously to improve traffic flow and reduce the chance of road accidents.”

A new team of customer service staff will be on-hand to assist drivers as the procedures are introduced. Signage around the airport will be updated to ensure passengers are clearly directed to where they need to be.
