And for anybody wondering...

Emerald Airlines, which operates the Aer Lingus Regional service, has announced a new route from Cork Airport to Bristol in the UK. The airline also said today it would start a new service linking Belfast City with the Isle of Man. The new Cork-Bristol route will start on April 28 and will operate daily six times a week. The new Belfast-Isle of Man route will start on April 24. It will operate five times a week, increasing to six weekly flights for the peak Summer months.

The free 10 minutes is now in the Long Stay Car Park. I can see this causing chaos and making it a very unpleasant experience for anyone parking in the Long Stay Car Park if it gets bunged up with queues of cars dropping off and picking up.

You must have found a cheaper Heathrow than the one most of us use. The drop off fee is 5 highway robbery.

They were flying from Belfast City to Heathrow so the drop off was for Belfast City Airport

It will be carnage. Long stay is far far to far away from terminal to be a viable alternative. People will just park on Bypass. Not well thought out at all. Do we even have double red lines anywhere else in NI ?

Went through this a few weeks ago before the charge. Whoever thought up the layout, should say planned but this obviously wasn't, has either been drunk or has let their kids loose with a crayon and a blank sheet of paper. To drive 100yds off the bypass, reach a roundabout and drive straight back out again the opposite direction but turn before the exit is crazy. The actual drop off section when I was there reminded me of a go kart course, lots of sharp turns and confusing signs. The whole enterprise is a reasonable idea I think, it seems to be the way of all airports now however the design of this is amateurish. A really good example for other airports to study in the category of "How not to design an efficient road layout". I would imagine a lot of people will just drop off either on the bypass or head towards the long stay and drop off at the goods yard entrance.

Yes, a number of times. Not frequently though.

​​​​​​If you think that's bad !

The pedestrian walkway from the front takes you down towards the old Eastern apron then if you can get past the cars parked across the path, must be a staff carpark
its cross the road back the same way past the security gate and along a narrow path that is just wide enough for single file

I think LH need to have a word with themselves about there prices. Seem very steep but at least they operating over winter.

I note you can walk to and exit the gate to the bridge for the railway line but it's exit only. Arrivals need to phone for a bus or walk along the pavement by the road? I guess this is because of local low level crime?
It's not ideal if you are unfamiliar or pressed for time.

If it just went on sale it could be only high fares loaded at the moment which is common when a flight just goes on sale. Otherwise it's probably a good sign that demand is high enough to charge those prices.
