Why choose Jetparks 1

Official East Midlands Airport Meet & Greet Parking

JetParks 1 is fast and simple to use, too. On arrival your numberplate will be automatically read and your booking confirmed - you will then be issued a ticket (which you’ll need when you return). This procedure may take up to one minute. Please note - do not press the button to request a ticket, as this will disable the automatic numberplate recognition service. Once in, find a parking space, unload your bags and head for the shuttle bus and take the eight-minute trip to the terminal. Blue badge holders can park in the designated parking bays and staff will assist on request.

Returning is just as straightforward. Simply make the short journey back to JetParks 1, drive to the exit barrier, enter your ticket and continue your journey home. Any problems, just use the 24-hour assistance button.

Safety - for you and your car - is paramount, which is why JetParks 1 is a holder of the Park Mark® Safer Parking Award holder, along with features such as 24-hour CCTV 24-hour, security fencing, security patrols and lighting for added peace of mind.

My only complaint would be there was no proper queuing system so when the shuttle bus arrived at the arrivals area it was a free for all and people who had been waiting for a long time were jostled to the back

Stafford GB
this was not a good service compared with Hams hall. the buses were not frequent enough and the surface of the car park poor. the only staff I had any contact with was the driver and he was friendly enough. The put down and pick up points are poor with confusion at where we should go into the airport and where we should stand waiting to be collected on exit.
I would use aph again but not at east midlands in the same way.

Stoke on Trent GB
Very good when we arrived our number plate was not recognised we pressed for assistants and it was quickly sorted out

On leaving we could not find the exit ticket again we pressed for assistance and it was quickly sorted

when I booked I thought the car park was closer to the airport than it was but it was not a problem as the transfer did not take to long

I have used this company before at other airport and will defiantly use them again the on line booking is very easy to use

I usually fly from Manchester and the East Mid. Jet Parks doesn't have as many bus stops, but that is a small point as Jet Parks are always good value with an excellent bus service.

Rowley Regis West Midlands GB
Parking was much better when APH had the own off airport parking facilities at East Midlands, JetParks is a step backwards when you have been used to the previous parking service provided by APH.
I would definitely use APH again but not at East Midlands airport, I will fly from Birmingham in future and use APH parking facilities there.
Had this parking been provided by APH the scores above would have been all 10s

Nottingham GB
The arrival and bus ride from the Jet1 car park to the terminal was fine, but the return journey from customs to catching the bus back to the Jet1 car park was a complete shambles, within the airport itself the information signage to direct you to the bus pick up point was confusing and inadequate, countless people were wondering around completely confused and lost. With it now being dark the outside lighting was almost none existent again with people wondering around totally lost, NEVER AGAIN from East Midlands, I would sooner fly from Birmingham it would have been quicker and a far better experiance, Now bearing in mind that I live much closer to East Midlands.

Arriving back at East Midlands after midnight we found a 20 min wait frustrating (not to mention chilly!)
Aside from that we have used APH at several airports and numerous times and find them convenient and good value when booked in advance.
