Under the banner 'Welcome to Heathrow Airport' there is this information -

Terminal Drop-Off Charge.

  • There is a £5 charge for vehicles entering the drop-off areas.
  • You can pay in advance, on the day you drop-off, or by midnight the next day.
  • You cannot pay at an airport ticket machine or in the terminal drop-off zones.
  • As of January 1, 2022, Heathrow Airport increased the passenger charge to £30.19.
  • The United Kingdom is the most expensive country in the world to fly out of, thanks to the Air Passenger Duty that’s levied on flights. That doesn’t even account for individual airport taxes and passenger charges, which can also be steep.

How much is the UK Air Passenger Duty?

The UK Air Passenger Duty amount is broken down based on the distance you’re flying, and the class of service you’re flying in:

  • For flights of up to 2,000 miles (short haul), the APD is £13 (~$18) in economy, and £26 (~$36) in a premium cabin.
  • For flights of over 2,000 miles (long haul), the APD is £82 (~$113) in economy, and £180 (~$247) in a premium cabin.

As of April 1, 2022, the APD for long haul flights will be increasing again:

  • The long haul economy APD will increase by £2, from £82 to £84.
  • The long haul premium cabin APD will increase by £5, from £180 to £185
