Sustainable Development Plan

Setting out the context for the growth and development of East Midlands Airport

The East Midlands Airport Sustainable Development Plan is our vision of how we see the airport developing over the next 20 years. Our current plan was published in 2015. ​

We are ambitious for the development of the airport and our region. Our aim is to deepen the role that we play in the Midlands; driving growth through better connectivity; creating jobs and attracting investment and enabling our passengers to enjoy their travel to their favourite destinations from their local airport. As we grow, we are committed to growing the airport in a responsible and sustainable way working with our partners to minimise disturbance and reduce emissions.​

We hope that you find our plans useful and interesting, and we are working together with our airline customers and our partners across the East Midlands to develop the airport and bring maximum benefit to the region. We also want to make sure that our plans are up to date to meet the opportunities and challenges of the future. We hope to share our updated Sustainable Development Plan in 2022. ​
