There is a height restriction for the drop-off facility of 2m, vehicles exceeding this can use the over-height car park.

    So after the last bit of public transport has left for the night passengers have to relay on friends or family to pick them up. The prices are to say the least daylight or nighttime robbery, even Dick Turpin wore a mask when he robbed people. But not Manchester Airport they do it quite openly. Might I suggest that prices are reduced after the public transport has finished or do you intend to squeeze every penny you can from travellers who have no choice. Personally I try to give the penny pinching Manchester Airport as little money as I can when having to use it.

    Will this now require a payment to get out of the car park when previously dropping off was free ?
