East Midlands Airport (EMA) has announced a new investment programme of over 120 million GBP to be allocated toward improving passenger experience.

Over the next five years, work is set to begin to update the airport’s infrastructure, maintain safety and regulatory standards and ease operation for its 4 million annual passengers.

Improvements are planned to include an expansion of EMA’s security hall in order to update current scanning technology, refreshed toilet facilities, customer seating and roofing, upgraded heating and cooling equipment across the terminal, an overhaul of the air traffic control systems and the reconstruction of taxiways.

Steve Griffiths, EMA’s Managing Director, said:

This is the start of a very exciting period for the airport. Our passenger numbers are almost back to pre-Covid levels and our already significant air cargo operation has capacity to expand, along with the potential for growth and investment that the East Midlands Freeport brings.

This programme of substantial investment at EMA demonstrates our confidence in the future and will help to improve the experience of flying from and trading through East Midlands Airport. We’re really proud of the effortless travel we provide that prompts people to choose EMA for their holidays abroad, and of the vital part we lay in powering UK trade. We’re always looking at ways to improve and this investment will help us do that over the next five years and beyond.

EMA is also exploring new possibilities for improving its Rapid Drop-Off area in order to improve the flow of vehicles visiting the site, including cashless and barrier-free operating systems.
