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.
When you arrive at the airport to fly overseas or to greet a loved one coming home, there's usually little time to notice what keeps it all going in the background. There are huge numbers of people working in different parts of the airport. All trying to make the experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
