Arrival Procedure

On arrival at the JetParks 1 car park:

  1. The JetParks car parks at East Midlands Airport are pre-book only, so make sure you book your space in advance.
  2. On the day, simply drive up to the car park barrier, and our ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) system will recognise your car's number plate and open the barrier. There's no need to take a token.
  3. Find a space and park up, then head to the nearest bus stop to take the free bus transfer to the terminal.

If the barrier does not rise automatically, do not press the button for a ticket, instead call for assistance using the intercom button.

Please ensure you allow sufficient time park your vehicle and complete the airport transfer.

Return Procedure

Returning is just as straightforward:

  1. On your return, take the bus transfer back to the car park and find your car right where you left it. When you drive up to the barrier it'll recognise your number plate again and you can drive away.
