I'll be living 9 miles from EMA (in Loughborough) from this Sept.
I haven't ever visited EMA, so I'll be sure to do so in Sept or Oct, although I have read that there isn't any real viewing opportunities in the terminal area. How could I go about watching if I don't have a car?
|Quoting EMAlad (Reply 10):|
Would be nice to see a 777 or 747 occasionally though lol
|Quoting Noelg (Reply 11):|
To be honest there isn't any real potential for long haul passenger services, as BHX is 20 minutes down the road and MAN an 90 mins away. EMA's found it's market - LCC and charter passenger flights, with freight operations. If you want scheduled you want BHX/MAN/LBA.

BE have slots for 4x daily EDI-EMA for summer 07.
|Quoting DC-10 Levo (Reply 26):|
T3 fly EMA-ABZ three times a day now (was 4). The passenger figures have been quite poor recently so I expect them to drop another flight later this year meaning there will be 2 flights to ABZ and back each day.
|Quoting Noelg (Reply 11):|
There's the weekly Kalitta 747 on Saturdays, as well as other one-off 747 freight movements throughout the week
|Quoting EMAlad (Reply 12):|
Virgin A340 doing circuits looked pretty good the other day too.
|Quoting BDRules (Reply 28):|
Also, anyone else heard about MAS Cargo starting a service 3 times weekly out of EMA to KUL
|Quoting Ringway (Reply 30):|
I'm not sure if this means an eventual overall ban of non-EMA based airlines, but I'm not sure why they've also chosen to ban training flights on bank holidays too.
|Quoting Lite (Reply 32):|
As part of the masterplan the airport authorities have decided to only allow airlines that base aircraft at EMA to conduct circuit training. No matter which airline it is, they will not be able to do so on weekends and bank holidays.
|Quoting EMAlad (Reply 33):|
When does this come into effect?
|Quoting Lite (Reply 35):
Thomsonfly definitely not basing a Boeing 767 here in Summer 07, seems to be two Boeing 757s and a Boeing 737 instead.
|Quoting BDRules (Reply 38):|
Ive heard its gonna be 2 737's in the form of 1 x 300 and 1 x 800 for Thomson
