The company that runs Dublin Airport is looking for planning permission to install a paid drop-off and pick-up zone at the airport.
The daa is planning to introduce charges for people who wish to pick up and drop off passengers by car.
The proposal would see a new paid system in place in front of Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.
This aim is to reduce the number of car journeys to and from the airport, and to encourage passengers to make greater use of public transport.
Pól Ó Conghaile is travel editor at Independent.ie.
He told Pat Kenny: "What that would mean is that for you to drop-off and collect passengers in a private vehicle that there would be charges introduced in the future.
"They say that it's because they want to reduce car journeys to and from the facility and, importantly I guess as well, that they wouldn't introduce it while the pandemic is underway."
"They'll need to do a realignment of the roads and they'll need to create an area where this'll happen.
"At the moment there's taxis, there's buses and there's lots of public traffic and people get dropped off and picked up in different ways.
"It's fine to drop off and in fact it's [sic] the problem - which I hadn't actually realised - is that picking up is not permitted."
"There is a charging system is Cork where the first 15 minutes are free on a drop-off, and then after that a driver will pay €3 for the minutes from 16 to 20 and then a fiver and so on".
"daa hasn't said what charges it'll implement - but it's likely just looking at what other airports have put in place that a system where the first couple of minutes for drop-off are free, and then the charges will come in after a cut-off period, or 10 or 15 minutes".
"That's what they want to rule out, and they don't want people coming in and waiting for exiting passengers either."
"It's very common in the UK particularly, they call them 'kiss and fly' charges, airports have really confusing kind of systems.
"But all over the UK you'll find charges from as little as £1, it's in Belfast as well, up to £5 and then the meter starts running".
"They're saying that any funding that would be generated from this would be ring-fenced for sustainability initiatives.
"So not only do they want to kind of discourage private car journeys, but they'll put it towards measures like a proposed solar farm, for example, and installing more electric vehicle charging points."
"There will be a couple of other initiatives: the red long-term car park - they say a free drop-off and pick-up will be available there.
"You may be familiar with that, that's about a five minute journey on the bus.
"And that they'll also make an adaptation to the short-term car parks, where you get a reduced fee [for a] 30 minute parking period".
