Manchester Airport has confirmed a new system to tackle congestion on its campus will go live on July 10th.
In March it announced it was creating a dedicated drop-off site from where passengers will be able to board a free shuttle service to their terminal.
The airport hopes the move will help ease growing levels of congestion.
Those passengers still wanting to be dropped off directly outside the terminals will have to pay a £3 fee for five minutes or £4 for 10.
For those collecting passengers at car parks outside each terminal there will be a cost of £4 for 30 minutes.
The drop-off site is located at the current Jetparks 1 site, near to Terminal 2.

A limited number of shuttle services have resumed on the Lakes Line, which runs trains between Oxenholme and Windermere.
All trains were stopped last month due to timetable changes and staffing issues. This led to a number of delays and cancellations.
There will be replacement buses to cover staff breaks.
Northern Rail has not yet said when services will return to a normal timetable.
