Dropping your friends or family off at East Midlands Airport anytime soon? Well you may need to be aware that the drop-off charges have now doubled.

Passengers using the rapid drop-off zone, outside the airports main terminal, will now be charged £2 for 10 minutes.

They will also be charged an extra £1 for every minute they stay over this ten minutes - a policy introduced in 2010.

East Midlands Airport first started charging people £1 for these drop-offs back in July 2010.

A statement from East Midlands Airport said: “To make our airport easier to access and improve our customers’ journeys we are making over £2 million improvements to our car parks.

“These improvements include increasing the number of spaces available, providing one hour free pick-up parking, improving the frequency of on-site buses and managing the demand for our Rapid Drop Off area, which will cost £2.”

What do you think to the price increase? Is it fair?
