Using Premium Set Down

To enter the Premium Set Down area, you will need to press for a ticket at the entry barrier, and then find a space. Once you have dropped your passenger off, you will either need to pay at the machines or at the exit point, using a debit or credit card. If you pay at the Payment machines, then the barrier will automatically rise as you approach the exit. You will need your ticket to pay either at the Payment machines or at the exit. Please note, all our payment machines are now cashless. Premium Set Down is only for dropping off travelling passengers.

If you have pre-booked the car park and provided your vehicle registration number during the check-out process, then the barrier will automatically raise, and you will receive a ticket upon arrival.

Blue badge holders

Blue badge holders can park at the Premium Set Down for 30 mins, for free. To take advantage of this service, you’ll need to present your entry ticket and your Blue Badge at the NCP customer service desk in Premium Set Down before your flight. None of the pay machines are able to validate 30 minutes free parking, so it’s important you go to the customer service cabin. All tickets must be validated before you leave the drop off area; any tickets that aren’t validated won’t be eligible for the refund.
