Some airports charge fees to drivers dropping passengers off, and non-refundable fees to use
baggage trolleys, so you might want to have some change available when using these airports. Some
airports charge passengers to use the airport. These fees are called airport development fees.
Some airports charge additional fees to passengers once they are at the airport. This involves
the purchase of a ticket that allows passengers to go through security. Airlines must make you
aware of these fees when you book flights out of these airports.
Some airports charge a premium for passengers to go through fast-track security.
If you do not receive the advertised service you should seek a refund from the airport.
The CAA publishes an airport charges comparison table so that passengers can
check the fees associated with different airports. This includes information on the cost of buying
plastic bags, any charges for dropping passengers at the airport, charges for express security
lanes and airport development fees. The CAA publishes this table to help passengers compare
different options before booking. It does not endorse the fees charged by airports or airlines.
