This weekend sees the start of Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s (LJLA) busiest time of the year once again, as the school holidays begin for many families from across the region.
DATED: 14 May 2014 - for up to date car park arrangements, please visit liverpoolairport.com/parking
Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) have introduced new car parking arrangements for those drivers visiting the Airport to either drop off or pick up passengers.
Drivers now have a choice of facilities at LJLA, using either:
- The Express Drop Off & Pick Up car park closest to the terminal building with a minimum £2 charge for up to 20 minutes, or
- A new car park called “Drop Off 2” which will be free to use for up to 20 minutes. This new car park will be located in one of the existing car parks, and is a 10 min walk from the passenger terminal.
These changes have been introduced in response to customer feedback regarding the 5 minutes free parking period within the Express Drop Off and Pick Up car park and to improve the traffic flow and levels of safety. A new parking layout is to be introduced and equipment will be installed that improves the ease of use for drivers and provides improved weather protection for passengers. In order to do this, it will be necessary to reduce the vehicle capacity in this area and make this a chargeable facility to restrict usage.
The Express Drop Off and Pick Up car park is now a better value product, giving customers a longer waiting period. Previously 20 minutes would have cost drivers £4.00, however this has now been reduced to £2.00, giving visitors more time to go and wave off friends and family when they travel.
Special arrangements will be put into place for Blue Badge holders, who will be permitted to park within designated bays of the Express Drop Off & Pick Up car park for a period of 30 minutes free of charge. For further information click here.
Unlike most other UK airports, Liverpool will continue to offer drivers the opportunity to drop off and pick up passengers for no charge and has increased the free parking period in the new “Drop Off 2” car park from 5 minutes to 20 minutes.
Short Stay Parking arrangements remain unchanged with drivers wishing to park in excess of 20 minutes recommended to use the Multi Storey Car Park, located directly opposite the terminal building.
Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented, “We have been keen to maintain a free facility for our customers, unlike most UK airports who no longer provide free drop off and pick up areas. Having listened to feedback, our solution improves the customer experience and provides passengers with a choice of where to drop off and pick up at the Airport.”
Liverpool John Lennon continues to be one of the cheapest airport parking locations in the UK, with safe and secure parking on site as highlighted in the 2013 Which? airport parking guide. Long stay prices are available from £2.89 per day and can be booked on the airport website:www.liverpoolairport.com
