Interesting though as I wasn't aware that Baby & Germanwings codeshared before.

They are both owned by Lufthansa now so selling each others flights is a natural progression.

Both airline's websites direct you to their "partner airline" for the routes concerned so looks like it's a code share.

Yes, don't get too excited over bmibaby/Germanwings. It's not even a code-share, only a website-forward (as WW did with the EMA-CGN flight, forwarding to BD's website). 4U hasn't added the WW routes into the route network map. No new routes we haven't heard about before, especially no additional Germanwings flights from the UK to their home bases (CGN, STR, SXF). And I'd still be very surprised to see a 4U A319/320 actually landing at EMA. Adding at least a EMA-CGN or BHX-CGN, they could offer all their connections via CGN, but no. Yes, I know, routes from the Midlands to Cologne were tried many a time and never worked. Good news for BE at BHX as they have less competition.

Bus to EMA

Can anybody help with the best way to get to EMA from Nottingham train station. I believe there is a shuttle bus or something similar. Also, how long the journey takes.

Colin,
If you are coming from Norwich,change at Nottingham, and catch the train to East Midlands Parkway, then the shuttle bus.

Shuttle bus Nottingham

I've not used the Nottingham shuttle for a while, but it
was quite ok back then, timetabled journey time 45min
but probably a bit shorter outside of rush-hour, runs
every 30min:

Nottingham Timetable

Don't really see the point to change to the St. Pancras train
for 'East Midlands Parkway' station, which is interestingly ignored
on EMA's 'how-to-get-there' site. Infrequent shuttles were
the problem ? Total travel time anyway is not faster than
the Nottingham shuttle, just more hassle. Check here:
east midlands - Trip Request - English
For your return: EMA shuttles have this nice colour-coding:
Yellow: Derby and Loughburough, Green: Leicester, Blue:
Nottingham, all departing outside Departures these days.

Don't think so!

Rail connections to East Midlands Parkway Station
East Midlands Parkway opened on Monday 26 January 2009. For trains stopping at Parkway check National Rail Enquiries. Passengers can connect to Parkway on the Railink bus which operates every 30 minutes from 7am to 11.30pm.

Many thanks for your kind replies. Does anybody know what the charge for the shuttle bus is from East Midlands Parkway station to EMA?

Thanks again.

Acknowledged.
But I stand by my opinion that using 'East Midlands Parkway' station is just more hassle and won't be faster than the direct shuttle-bus from Nottingham. I mean every 30min is not that frequent. But sure, doesn't really matter if you only go to EMA once.

Ryanair

Stuart,

...must be a new 2,5hr flight.

An 06.00 departure to ORK would fit in nicely if that were the case...!
Perhaps 4 weekly Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon...?

I believe that Krakow will follow the 10:05 BHD flight from a source I have heard from today, however, is not for certain, AGP may be moved back

I can almost guarantee that FR wont announce ORK, bmibaby operate the route now 4 times a week, they will do the job perfectly

OliWW,

Precisely - on the same days as I suggested! It was tongue-in-cheek!
