Upon your arrival at Short Stay 1 car park
Short Stay car parks operate an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system so it is important you enter the correct vehicle registration when making your booking. We recommend that you bring a copy of your confirmation with you. On arrival, please drive up to the entry barrier and your car registration will be read. A ticket will be automatically issued to you. Make your way to any available space and park your car. Keep this ticket safe as it will be needed on your return.
Upon your return to East Midlands Airport
Upon your return to the airport, proceed to your car and drive to the exit barrier. Please insert your ticket to leave and the barrier should raise automatically. If the barrier does not raise and/or asks for payment, please do not insert your credit or debit card into the barrier as a further payment will be taken. Please press the intercom button for assistance and quote your pre-booking reference number.
