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.

Tamworth GB Happy APH Customer
We have used JetParks 1 & 2 on several occasions when flying from East Midlands Airport and would like to say that this is an excellent service that works really well and we will use it again when we next travel from East Midlands without any hesitation.

Ashbourne GB Use more local parking
Arrived at jet park 1 to find it had been taken over due the local concert "Download" although we had not been informed so had to make enquiries as to where we could park! I'm sure APH must have been aware of this previously. If my car had been removed in the same way as other vehicles I would have been very concerned about any damage caused.

Nottingham GB
The automated barrier system has not let me down yet so I have confidence in the secure system. The buses are regular and drivers friendly, my only concern is the surface of the parking area where stones are kicked up and I will be surprised if some care have not been damaged by the stones being kicked up by cars reversing from the parking bay.
