Q: I am dropping off my family and I want to go into the terminal. Where should I park?

A: If you wish to stay for over 20 mins we recommend you use the short stay car park in the ‘Multi storey car park’ or ‘Drop off 2’

Q: Will there be any changes if I stay beyond 20 minutes?

A: The tariff in the Express Drop Off and Pick Up facility has been increased in order to better manage demand and reduce congestion in this area caused by growing passenger numbers and popularity of products. The increased charge is to encourage more drivers to make use of the other parking areas available. This facility is intended for drivers who wish to stop briefly to drop off or collect passengers closest to the terminal building, however vehicles are remaining in this area for longer than is necessary. The new tariffs will mean that vehicles waiting in this area for over 20 minutes will be better served by the short stay rates available in the Multi Story Car Park

Q: Where is ‘Drop off 2’ and is it far away?

A: “Drop off 2” is signposted on the approach road overhead gantry and is 400 metres from the terminal next to Car Hire and Cheap Parking car parks.  There is pedestrian access and it takes approximately 8 minutes to walk to the terminal building. 

Q: Is there a shuttle bus?

A: No. Unlike many other UK airports, all on site car parks at Liverpool John Lennon Airport are within walking distance of the terminal building, avoiding the need to wait for a shuttle bus.

Q: What if I am a Blue Badge holder?

A: Blue Badge holders will be permitted to park in the accessible bays of the ‘Express Pick Up and Drop off Car park’ for free, for an increased free period up from 30 to 40 minutes. Blue Badge holders take their Blue Badge to the Car Park Kiosk located on the ground floor of the Multi Storey Car Park to obtain a validated exit ticket. Stays beyond 30 minutes revert to the published rates.
