Other means of getting to East Midlands Airport are listed below but these are generally less convenient:
Rail transport to East Midlands Airport
There are three stations nearby East Midlands Airport and these all link up to the airport via the Skylink bus service or a pre-arranged taxi service. Buses from Derby and Nottingham stations run approximately every half hour throughout the day and customers travelling to East Midlands Parkway station can pre-book the shared taxi service operated by Arrow Cars. Make sure you factor in the journey times both to the station and between stations and airport if you decide to travel by train.
Coach transport to East Midlands Airport
A National Express coach service does operate to East Midlands Airport from Sheffield, Leeds and Coventry but not from other areas in the UK. If you are travelling by coach from anywhere else you will need to change to the Skylink bus service that runs to the airport from either Derby or Leicester. Although potentially cheaper, this makes travelling by coach to East Midlands Airport less convenient than driving yourself and parking in one of the airport car parks.
Taxi transport to East Midlands Airport
A tailored taxi service operated by Arrow Cars can provide taxi transfers to East Midlands Airport for customers willing to pay a little more for their transfer. You can also enjoy the benefits of having your car returned to you at the terminal if you choose to drive yourself and book the Airparks Return Greet service.
