Save yourself from one more travel headache by reserving airport parking at East Midlands Airport (airport code EMA) before your next flight.

Some information about East Midlands Airport:

  • East Midlands Airport is between the cities of Derby, Leicester, and Nottingham, all of which are 20 miles or less from the airport.
  • Wifi is available free for 30 minutes & longer for a fee.
  • The airport has both regular scheduled flights on commercial airlines and a number of charter airlines as well. Ryanair, easyJet and bmibaby are the airport’s hub airlines, and serve the most destinations from the East Midlands airport.
  • Because people outside the UK have trouble placing East Midlands Airport on a map (they have no idea where the “East Midlands” are), the airport’s name was changed for a short time to include Nottingham in the name – even though the airport is actually closest to Derby. The name was changed again in 2006 to the airport’s current official name: East Midlands Airport: Nottingham, Leicester, Derby (although everyone still refers to it as simply East Midlands Airport).
