Manchester Airport has decided to increase the parking fees for the drivers picking up the passengers by 50p. It is reported that the from June and onwards the drivers will have to pay a higher parking fee.
The increased parking tariffs will apply to the motorists using the multi-storey car parks to pick up travellers arriving at the airport, alongside those departing and who have not booked a long-stay space at the airport in advance.
All the Drivers will now be charged £4.50 for a stay of up to 30 minutes, increasing 50p from the previous price which was £4. The Discount cardholders will also have to pay an increased rate of 30p, they will now be charged £2.70 up from £2.40 for a half hour stay at the airport.
The airport transfer companies have now said that, as a consequence of this price hike, the drivers will have to pay £350 more a year.
The Manchester Airport website states, “There are different parking options available depending on which terminal you’re visiting. According to the airport, all the passengers can use our free drop off area, from which a shuttle bus will transport you free of charge to your terminal.
However, drop-off fees, first introduced by the airport last year, remains the same.
