People who qualify for a Blue Badge by virtue of experiencing very considerable difficulty walking will benefit from on-street parking concessions. In car parks, including at airports, it is for the operator to determine the terms of parking and any concessions. Airports offer drop-off areas for passengers travelling with a companion that are closest to the terminals, as well as Blue Badge parking spaces.
