Glasgow Airport Guide

New drop off zone opens today


Passengers can be picked up and dropped off outside the Glasgow Airport terminal building again from today for the first time since last summer's terrorist attack. The new £150,000 pick-up and drop-off zone will end the long walk that passengers have faced from St Andrew's Drive since the restrictions introduced after the terror attack last June (St Andrew's Drive would remain as a secondary drop-off point for peak times).

Those dropping off or picking up passengers will be able to wait in the new barrier zone, directly opposite the terminal building, for up to 10 minutes without charge. People needing to wait longer than 10 minutes will still need to use the airport's short-stay car parks.

The new zone can accommodate up to 60 cars, and was created after a total of 160 parking bays in the ground floor of the airport's multi-storey car park were stripped out to make way for the facility, part of a £2 million plan to improve passenger access to and from the airport. It has 4 designated spaces for people with reduced mobility, and special help points have also been set up. Parking wardens will patrol the zone and hand out £20 fines to anyone caught abusing it.

Gordon Dewar, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: ‘The drop-off zone on St Andrew's Drive has served us well since the terror attack. However, we fully understand passengers want to pick up and drop off as close to the terminal as security constraints allow.'
