Where do I drop off a departing passenger?

If you know the passenger’s airline, class of travel and terminal of departure, find out the correct drop off point from the table below:

Class Terminal 1 Terminal 2 Terminal 3
Economy Outer lane in front of Terminal 1 between Entrances 2 and 4 OR lower curbside (clearly signposted). Outer lane in front of Terminal 2 only. Outer lane in front of Terminal 3 only.


Where do I meet an arriving passenger?

Before leaving for the airport, check the flight status so that you are not kept waiting in case of a delay.

Passengers arriving at Terminal 1 or 3 can be picked up from the main Arrivals Hall on the lower level, opposite the car park. Passengers arriving at Terminal 2 can be picked up from the Arrivals Hall in Terminal 2. 

Quick option - Drop Off and Pick Up

It is possible to pick up or drop off a passenger at the curbside in front of the terminal building provided you do not wait for an extended period of time.

For security reasons, vehicles should not be left unattended at any time. Any vehicle left unattended outside the terminals will be swiftly removed by the police and the owner will be charged for recovery.

If you would prefer to park

Once you get to the airport, you can park your vehicle in the Short Term car park. Find out where to park here.

From the car park, follow the signs to enter the terminal building.
