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.

Passengers can travel through the airport in the knowledge that measures are in place to help keep them safe. Firstly, everyone who travels overseas needs to test negative before boarding a plane, while face mask wearing in the terminals continues to be strongly advised, and deep cleaning and hand sanitisers remains 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.

More than 50 popular destinations are now available to fly to from East Midlands Airport on Monday

Clare James, EMA managing director, said: “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."
