Parking or Stopping in Unauthorised areas
Customers should note that the practice of drivers picking up or setting down passengers in unauthorised areas ( which poses a risk both to the safety of passengers and that of other road users, as well as causing congestion and disruption to traffic) is not allowed. The Airport is routinely patrolled by the use of mobile CCTV cameras and clear signage has been installed to warn drivers accordingly and offenders will be required to pay an enforcement charge which will be issued retrospectively.
A £100 enforcement charge is payable by drivers who stop their vehicles to drop off or pick up passengers in unauthorised parking areas or stopping on the internal roads. This charge is reduced to £50 if paid within 14 days.
