Over 50 destinations to fly to from East Midlands Airport this summer
Passenger airlines serving East Midlands Airport (EMA) are offering flights to over 50 destinations* this summer.
Whether it’s a domestic break in Northern Ireland, a Mediterranean beach holiday or a visit to a European city, all are easily reachable with a short flight from East Midlands Airport.
The airport is hoping that it will see an increase in passenger demand over the coming weeks now that those who have received two vaccinations can avoid quarantine upon return from an ‘amber’ country, and as the region’s schools’ break-up for the summer holidays.
EMA is served by popular low-cost carriers Ryanair, JET2, TUI as well as easyJet who recently launched flights to Belfast, and Aurigny and Blue Islands who whisk people off to the Channel Islands.
Passengers can travel through the airport in the knowledge that measures are in place to help keep them safe. Everyone who travels overseas needs to test negative or show proof of vaccination before boarding a plane (depending on the requirements of the destination country), while face mask wearing in the terminals continues to be strongly advised, and deep cleaning and hand sanitisers remain in place.
The airport has also recently expanded its on-site testing capacity and offers a range of arrival and departure tests, including packages for amber/green list countries, plus Test to Release, which unlocks passengers from quarantine after a full five days.
Clare James, East Midlands Airport’s Managing Director, says: “While I appreciate that there is still anxiety about travelling abroad in the current climate, the recent reminder of what Mediterranean heat feels like may encourage holiday-makers to book for an overseas trip this summer if they haven’t done so already. While our passenger numbers remain below what they would have been pre-pandemic, this is a good time to travel if you want to avoid the usual crowds of the British exodus to sunnier climes.”
