Drop-Off / Pick-Up: Drivers can drop off passengers in front of the passenger terminal--follow signs for dropping off when approaching the airport. Note, however, that you must use the Short-Stay Under 24-hrs Car Park and stay with your car until your party has arrived, collected luggage and calls you to be picked up at the curb. Unattended or waiting vehicles outside any terminal building will be towed. Also do not pick up or drop off on approach roads as this may create traffic congestion and will also mean a longer walk for your passengers.
