If the journey exceeds the complimentary allowance, passengers will need to pay the driver for the additional distance at their drop-off destination.

All travellers with eligible bookings impacted by the changes for flights departing after this date will be contacted by the airline.

New bookings for Chauffeur Drive can be made on/before 1 March 2019 for flights departing on/before 1 March 2020.
