Manchester Airport has confirmed further details of their plans to start charging drivers for dropping passengers off at all three terminals.
The new arrangements will be introduced this month to help alleviate the congestion caused by the high volume of "kiss and fly" and the recirculation of cars.
From June, drivers will be charged an express drop-off fee of £3 for staying up to five minutes or £4 for six to ten minutes.
The forecourt management plan announced in March, also includes the creation of a new drop-off zone, from where passengers will be transferred to all of its terminals free of charge.
This week, Manchester Airport has confirmed arrangements for passengers with reduced mobility, local users of the airport station and commercial operators, such as private hire taxi firms.
An exact date in June for the system being introduced is still to be confirmed but will be communicated in advance.
The airport has confirmed Blue Badge holders will be able to drop-off outside the terminals free of charge.
Non-Blue Badge holders who have booked special assistance can use the free drop-off site, where there will be a dedicated help point to communicate with the airport's assistance provider. All buses travelling to and from the terminals from this location are wheelchair accessible.
A scheme for people living near to the airport who use its Ground Transport Interchange to travel in and out of Manchester and surrounding areas has also been developed, following discussions with stakeholders in these communities.
It allows people in certain postcodes to apply for a permit, giving them access to the station for an annual fee of £30.
A discount scheme will also be set up for commercial private hire operators who are frequent users of the airport. The scheme already exists for pick-up within car parks and will now offer discounted access to the forecourts, for drop-off.
Tricia Williams, COO of Manchester Airport, said: "Manchester Airport has seen a significant increase in passenger volumes in the past five years and is heavily investing in further growth and improvements to the customer experience, most notably through our £1bn transformation programme.
"This growth, coupled with imposed security restrictions on forecourt capacity and an inability to increase available space, has led to extreme congestion around the estate, especially at peak times. It became clear we had to take a more proactive approach to managing this, as Manchester Airport continues to grow, which is why we are introducing a forecourt management system, including a dedicated free site for people to be dropped-off at.
"We have listened carefully to issues raised by passengers since announcing our plans and have been able to respond to many of the concerns raised through the measures being announced today.
"We will announce any further details, including the exact date the system will be introduced, at the earliest opportunity."
Proceeds from the forecourt management scheme will go into a new public transport fund being set up by the airport. This will be used to support measures to improve access to the site for employment opportunities as well as passengers using public transport. The airport will be working in partnership with Cheshire East Council, the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and Transport for Greater Manchester to administer the fund.
The changes being introduced only impact those dropping-off. The process for picking up passengers remains the same. Passengers can be picked up in terminal car parks, as per the current process, with a charge of £4 for 30 minutes.
