East midlands airport - Airparks Closed

Tried to book this off site airport parking via Airparks, but the site is closed.

The ground rent has apparently increased to £100k a year , so its been closed to new bookings.

Wether a new deal is in the offing i dont know .. neither did the gentleman i spoke to at East midlands Airparks.

Perhaps you would like to notify the official airport website it is in Leicestershire. Due to the DE postcode they have the postal address as Derby, which I am sure you are aware, unlike the OP who was merely seeking advice.

Of course they have the postal address as Derby, as it has a Derby post code. All the surrounding villages do, too. But you surely must know (1) Post codes do not correspond to county boundaries (2) Immediately out of the airport on the A453 there are two large "Welcome to Leicestershire" road signs.

Anyway...the on-site parking has proved pretty good on many occasions that I have used it. Usually book it through APH for a good deal.

aardvark10 yes I do know. My point was and still is the OP and many other people don't, and furthermore rather than being so abrupt surely a simple 'you may wish to try the Leiestershire forum as well because .........' would have been more helpful. I think a large number of people would think the airport is in Derbyshire, or even Nottinghamshire?
