Red Routes

In order to maintain visitor safety, red routes are in operation around the airport site. Drivers are prohibited to stop, unload or park on the red routes which are clearly marked around the airport roads via signage and double red line road markings. A vehicle monitoring and enforcement operation is in place with an enforcement charge of £100 (reduced to £50 if paid within 14 days).


Birmingham Airport Limited and APCOA Parking UK Ltd have a responsibility for the enforcement of parking restrictions which are essential for the free flow of traffic and for safety. Restrictions regarding use of the roadway will be indicated on signage displayed on the roadway or by markings on the ground and it is your responsibility to check that your vehicle is not in breach of any description. 

APCOA Parking UK Ltd may issue Parking Charge Notices for breaches of the restrictions, including but not limited to:

  • Failing to park in a designated parking area
  • Dropping off/picking up outside of a designated parking area
  • Stopping on double red lines 

The charge payable for a Parking Charge Notice is £100 if paid within 28 days, reduced to £50 if paid within 14 days. 

All appeals and enquiries relating to parking enforcement on the private roads should be addressed to: Apcoa Parking, PO Box 222, Lowton Way, Hellaby, Sheffield, S98 1NX Telephone: 0345 303 7397

In the event of a breach of the restrictions, the vehicle keeper details will be requested from the DVLA. Further fees may be incurred if the Parking Charge Notice remains unpaid.
