Free Parking near East Midlands Airport

Parking for free whilst you are away on holiday is not the most recommended method, especially if you are out of the country for a long period of time.

We recommend using a free parking spot if you are flying on a domestic flight and will only be leaving your car for a maximum of 24 hours, although there are no restrictions for our free parking spots.

From here, you can jump on the SkyLink bus on Gasny Road, around a 2 minute walk, that runs 24/7 and takes around 3o minutes to get to East Midlands Airport.
