Dropping off and picking up at T1 International

Where and how to drop off

You can drop passengers off at the Departures level at T1 International. To help keep this zone congestion free and ensure other passengers get to their flights on time, we ask that you stop for no more than one minute. To help keep the airport safe and secure, you must remain with your vehicle and only use this area to drop off passengers.

Accessible drop off zones

If you're dropping off disabled passengers, clearly signed designated areas are available in the passenger drop off zones. Please note that drivers must remain with the vehicle at all times. If your passenger needs assistance accessing the terminal, we recommend an additional person attends to assist while you remain with the car. To reduce congestion and ensure that other passengers get to their flights on time, we ask that you stop for no more than five minutes in these areas.
