Drivers dropping off passengers or parking at Heathrow Airport will have to pay up to £15
Heathrow Airport has announced a new Heathrow ULEZ (Heathrow Ultra Low Emission Zone) under which drivers dropping off passengers or parking at the airport will be charged up to £15 per day.
Set to be implemented in 2022, the Heathrow ULEZ will see the introduction of minimum vehicle emissions standards identical to those of the London ULEZ for cars and private hire vehicles entering car parks and drop-off areas at any of the airport’s terminals 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Precise details of the charges and the levels at which they will be set have not yet been announced, but a preliminary figure of between £10 and £15 is being considered. Like the London ULEZ, the Heathrow ULEZ will target pre-Euro 4 petrols (typically those built before 2006) and pre-Euro 6 diesels (built before 2016).
