The short stay car park at Cardiff airport is now charging for people who wish to pick up or drop off passengers at the terminal. Cars can approach the Cardiff terminal building to drop off passengers but a no waiting policy will be enforced.
Passengers wishing to use the short term car park will be charged a minimum parking fee of £1 no matter how short the stay.
The short stay car park was formerly free for customers parking for up to 20 minutes - An airport spokeswoman said: "Cardiff International airport reacted to the customer comments we’ve received that 20 minutes to pick up was not long enough, and that passengers would prefer to pay a minimal fee to stay for longer."
"We’ve researched the market and believe we are providing good value for money in charging £1 for one hour."
