School Holiday Activities
There are lots of fun activities on at the Aerozone throughout the Easter and Summer holidays. Activity calendars will be posted on the right hand side of this page as soon as they are available.
Keeping schools up to date
Airport News is a news sheet produced by the Community Relations team which has been designed to keep schools and colleges in the region informed about education activities that take place at East Midlands Airport and in the Aerozone.
Vouchers for Schools
Each year the Community Relations team organise the collection of schools vouchers, given out at local supermarkets. Boxes are placed around the airport site for colleagues to place their unwanted vouchers into. These vouchers are then collected and handed over to local Primary Schools.
