Easy Midlands, possibly one of the worlds largest cargo hubs featuring airlines such as: UPS, TNT, and last of all (the biggest) DHL. It is said that the airport carries around 320,000 tonnes of flown cargo per year.
With this I come to talk about the brand new Mega-Terminal they are building for Cargo! This may be the step that takes EMA/EGNX to the top of the cargo hubs.
The new cargo terminal/station is going to provide more than 7000 jobs, whilst also providing at least 2 warehouses. It will, as well, be including a freight train service which will be a quick way for the Cargo airlines to transport their goods.
Below is the link to more information on the expansion:
As a person who lives very close to EGNX, I am very excited to see this. It came to my mind as I was driving right past the edge of the airport on Friday Afternoon, as I saw the massive building site I thought “what is this?”, so I searched it up.
I hear many planes (mostly DHL) passing low over my house at night and I can’t wait to hopefully hear even more!
Tell me what you think about this expansion and what you think lies ahead in the future of East Midlands Airport below!
