The terminal was renamed Terminal 3 in 1968 and two years later work was completed on a new arrivals building complete with moving walkways. Since then, other improvements have been made including the redevelopment of the forecourt to ease traffic congestion and the provision of a canopy to the front of the terminal building and a pedestrianised plaza for the enjoyment of passengers passing through.

Dropping off passengers at T3
Like all other terminals waiting is not permitted on the terminal forecourt itself but there is a four lane drop off area for passengers to set down and unload their luggage. You are able to drop someone off quickly in this area as long as you do not leave your vehicle.
Picking up passengers from T3
When meeting someone from a flight that is returning to T3, the Short Term Car Park 3 must be used as waiting on the forecourt is not allowed for the purposes of collecting recently arrived passengers. The car park is within a few minutes walking distance from the terminal entrance / exit.
