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.

pinxton GB use 4+ times ayear
The nearest car park to the terminal and if you are lucky you can get the front row.
The only complaint we have is that sometimes the number plate reader does not read your plate and issue you with a ticket which when you go wants paying for again.
Easy enough to sort out though you just have to give your name and if you have it the ref of your booking to the assistant who will lift the gate.

Overall not bad. The number plate recognition didn't work on entry and we had to wait between 5 and 10 minutes for the operator to answer the phone. The gave us an exit ticket but still didn't let us in. We had to ring again and waited about 5 minutes until they answered again and lifted the barrier. Once we were in we found a space really easily but it was the early hours of the morning in October so can't comment on ease of parking at peak times. Bus trip to and from airport really good. On exit, ticket didn't work and had to ring again but the operator answered a lot more quickly and let us out.

Much prefer APH offsite parking at B'ham Airport where we have never had a problem with number plate recognition in or out and they park the car for you once on site and return it to you for departure.

If you could fix the number plate recognition issue the experience would be much improved. Thank you.

It wasn't overly clear where the car park was and we did end up at the wrong one, but once we were on the right track, everything was very smooth.
