Well the potholes have now got their own potholes, come the first sniff of ice the roads start self gritting as the surface breaks down, but I wouldn’t expect it to improve anytime soon, the Airport headquarters building has a bloody great hole in one end through the outer wall and I’m talking feet wise, it’s falling apart, which doesn’t exactly hint at any spending anytime soon.

Does anyone know what the status is with the new UPS facility? I have heard it is due to open soon but not sure when. Is there any idea what sort of changes may happen to the UPS route network from EMA maybe we will see routes from Louisville? one of the new stands is marked for a 747 so will we maybe see some UPS aircraft other than the 767s?

think the open date is now expected to be April, and I’ve also heard rumours about flights from STN being moved up to EMA including some 747 traffic but I’m guessing time will tell

When I left nearly 2 years ago there were so few Admin people left that B34 was shutting and staff redeployed around the Airport, guess that's still the case, probably why nothing gets done to the pot holes - nobody to report to/ take action on!

Mars? It looks more like East Midlands Airports roads...joke.

AP, I cannot see how anyone could miss the poor standard of the roads, they after all have to drive over them to get in. Call me old fashioned but the first thing punters see is the road surfaces as they drive in and if that is worse than some third world countries to the punters they have to wonder what the rest of the infrastructure is like.

not sure if this is the start of new flights but this morning has seen

CGN - EMA - SDF 763F
CDG - EMA 763F

Also worth nothing the new 747 stand on cargo east is now in operation with Swissport handling the Cargologic 744F on the LGG - EMA - ATL flight
