Drop Off

Birmingham Airport Drop Off

Just 400 metres from the terminal, this drop off car park is just a few minutes’ walk to the main check-in desks, via a dedicated footpath. For those with lots of luggage, travelling with children, or who may have mobility issues, there is also a regular, wheelchair-friendly, and free bus service between the car park and the terminal, which picks-up from Car Park 5 – just across the road.

How to find us

Post code: B26 3QJ

Leave the M42 at junction 6 and proceed along the A45 following the signs to the airport. On arrival at the airport follow the signs for the Drop Off car park. You can gain access via a dedicated entrance on Airport Way, the main approach road to the terminal, which is clearly signposted.

Using the Drop Off 

Stays of up to 30 minutes in this car park are free, making it ideal for dropping off passengers flying from Birmingham Airport. Stays of over 30 minutes are charged at the standard tariff rate, which you’ll see displayed at the car park entrance.

Customers returning before the hour is up won’t benefit from the 30 minutes free parking.

When you arrive, press for a ticket to gain entry, before parking your car in any available bay.

Leaving the Drop off:

You’ll need to make your way to one of the Payment stations to validate your ticket. We know that not everyone carries cash so, for your convenience, the Payment stations also accept debit and credit cards. If you exceed the 30 minutes’ free parking, you’ll also need to validate your ticket at one of the Payment stations to exit.

If you experience any problems at the barrier, please press the button for assistance and our Control Centre team will be only too happy to help.

Blue Badge Holders

While the Drop Off Car Park has bays set aside for disabled drivers, it’s recommended that Blue Badge holders park at the Premium Set Down Car Park, where you can take advantage of having the first hour for free.

If you’re a Blue Badge holder and do not wish to leave your blue badge in your car while you’re away, go to the on-site cabin where you’ll be asked to fill in a form. You will then be issued with a permit (effectively a temporary blue badge) which you can then display in the front of your car during your stay.  Once you’ve got your permit, you’ll be directed to your space.
