Leeds Bradford Airport introduces drop-off charge

Leeds Bradford Airport introduces drop-off chargeMany travellers have expressed their anger after Leeds Bradford Airport has introduced a drop-off charge for motorists at the travel hub.

Now anyone who drops travellers off or picks them up will have to pay at least £2 regardless of how long they stay.

Vehicles that enter the short-stay car park by the terminal building will have their number plate automatically registered by cameras and will then pay their bill when they reach the exit barrier.

Drivers will be charged £5 if they stay for more than 30 minutes and £10 if they remain for in excess of an hour, and can pay with cards or coins.

Michael Norton, who works for private hire company All Aboard Travel, told the Yorkshire Evening Post: "Hardly anywhere else does this. To charge £2 for the two minutes it takes to chuck people out is ridiculous."

Similarly, Tony Arnett of TT travel told the news source that the airport was attempting to make more money out of passengers.

However, drivers can use the long-stay car park where they can stay for an hour without paying.

Travellers who decide to use Leeds Bradford Airport can fly to a number of destinations across Europe, including Austria, Cyprus, Malta and Switzerland.
