Top 10 destinations from East Midlands Airport this summer

During the school summer holidays, East Midlands Airport passenger numbers are forecast to rise to 95% of pre-Covid levels.

August will be the busiest month of the year, with 533,547 passengers expected. Over the entire ‘summer season’ (from April to the end of October), 3.17 million passengers will use the airport.

Mainland Spain, the Canary Islands and the Balearics continue to be the most popular destinations for EMA passengers. However, in a sign of growing popularity, the airlines that serve EMA are selling 300,000 seats to Greece and its islands this summer, which is an increase of 59% compared with 2019. This has resulted in new routes to Santorini (new this year) and Skiathos (a further addition since 2019).

The top 10 destinations this summer are:

  • Alicante (Spain)
  • Tenerife
  • Palma de Mallorca
  • Malaga
  • Faro (Portugal)
  • Arrecife (Lanzarote)
  • Dublin
  • Barcelona
