East Midlands Airport upgrade

Airport upgrades seem to be all the rage at the present time in spite of the gloomy economic outlook.  Heathrow T2 is well under way and Gatwick has been busy.

The Manchester Airports Group subsidiary, East Midlands Airport, has unveiled plans for a £12m terminal regeneration project that will improve the passenger experience and make it, they say, as simple, intuitive and efficient as possible.

The project includes a major refurbishment of the security search area and a reconfigured terminal layout, with further planned investment in 2013 to enhance the airport’s shopping experience and introduce new leading high street brands.

Tim McDermott, General Manager, East Midlands Airport, said: “Over the years the airport has developed the terminal building with a number of significant projects, including an extension to the arrivals area, construction of a bus interchange and an environmentally friendly pier housing additional aircraft gates.  However, this is the first time in 17 years that East Midlands Airport has made this level of investment in the terminal building.  It is incredibly important that the airport continues to develop its facilities and services to meet both current and future market demands, improve the journey for its passengers and also adapt as the industry continues to evolve". www.eastmidlandsairport.com
