A number of improvements are being made to airport parking facilities at Birmingham international, it has been announced.
Some £2 million is set to be invested at the airport on improving the traffic flow and parking arrangements for drivers who are dropping off and collecting passengers.
One piece of work has already been carried out on the airport’s ‘drop and go’ facility, which will increase the number of ‘drop off’ spaces available.
Drivers who are picking up passengers are advised to park in the airport’s multi-storey facilities or wait in the surface long-stay car park, where they can stay for free for up to an hour.
A number of the changes to Birmingham’s traffic flow and airport parking arrangements were made in response to the security alert at Glasgow Airport last year.
Richard Gill, head of market development at the airport, said: "The investment we have made, to the ‘drop and go’ facility in particular, will help access, safety and speed of dropping people at the airport and we urge drivers to only use the ‘drop and go’ facility for dropping-off passengers only, and to use the multi-storey car parks for collecting people."
