East Midlands Airport Short Stay 1 Parking

East Midlands Airport, Castle Donington, Derby, DE74 2SA

Fancy parking right outside the terminal building and walking straight to Check-In? If your trip is only a few days, enjoy the convenience of the Short Stay 1 Car Park!


This car park has an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system, so it is essential to enter the correct vehicle registration when making your booking.

Upon arrival at the car park, pull up to the entry machine at the barrier and your number plate will be automatically scanned. Take the ticket that is issued and keep it safe, as you will need it upon your return.

If a ticket is not automatically issued, please press the 'Assistance' button and explain to the attendant that your vehicle was not recognised. You will need to confirm your booking details, including your car registration, and a ticket will then be issued. We recommend taking a copy of your printed booking confirmation in case this happens, as you will need it when you return.


Collect your vehicle and drive to the exit barrier. Insert the ticket you were issued upon entry and the barrier will raise automatically.

If the barrier does not raise, press the intercom button and quote your booking reference.

Do not insert your credit or debit card into the barrier or you will be charged again for your parking.
