LONDONHeathrow Airport has announced it may soon start charging drivers £5 to drop off passengers outside terminals. The airport, which has been severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, has said it is exploring the possibility of introducing a charge for vehicles using the terminal departure forecourts.
If implemented, any vehicles using the forecourts to drop passengers off or pick them up directly outside the terminals will be charged £5.

The Forecourt Access Charge (FAC) could be brought in by the end of 2021, Heathrow Airport said.

Tony Caccavone, Heathrow director of surface access, said:
"The impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic have been severe, especially on the aviation industry with Heathrow passenger numbers down over 80 percent and the business losing £5m a day. These changes will help us to protect the business financially and save jobs in the short term, whilst also allowing us to stay on track for our long-term goals of providing safe, sustainable, and affordable transport options into the future.”
The airport has seen an 80 percent drop in passengers due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with £1.5bn losses recorded in 2020 so far.#
