East Midlands Airport Information

East Midlands Airport (IATA code EMA) is located in the East Midlands of England, at Castle Donington in the District of North West Leicestershire. The airport is between the cities of Derby, Leicester and Nottingham.

In 2004, East Midlands Airport was rebranded as Nottingham East Midlands Airport, despite lying in Leicestershire and the nearest city being Derby. Furthermore, there was already a small airfield called Nottingham Airport. The reasoning behind the name change was that many people from outside the UK and unfamiliar with the country's geography could not identify with the term 'East Midlands' and did not know exactly where in the UK it was ... A BBC report on 18 October 2006 suggested that the airport may change its name once again and the change, to East Midlands Airport: Nottingham, Leicester, Derby came into effect on 8 December 2006.
