East Midlands-7

BBC Breakfast are reporting from EMA this morning on the air cargo industry, and how well it is doing relative to commercial aviation as a whole. All good publicity for the airport.

UPS

Looking for an update on their operation at EMA.

Have UPS completed their move to the new hub facility yet?
I haven’t seen any announcement in the trade press so far, so I suppose it may still be in a transitional phase?

Also, has there been any indication of any future use for their vacated premises?

And what is so sad is that all most people, including those on AA&R threads, are bothered about are Passengers, passengers and passengers.

EMA is a commercial aviation success story, and was even before MAG took it over. Cargo is the airport's saviour, and likely it's future.

Quite so. I’ve watched with interest, the incredible growth of the freight operation at EMA over the years since I used to export through there. I can only see this growth continuing over the coming years considering the increasing expansion of freight related facilities on and around the airport.

Air cargo and parcels; one of the few sectors that will definitely benefit from Brexit, and the pandemic. Other airports, such as DSA and BHX have done very well out of both in the last few months, in the last few weeks, BHX has dene particularly well from the former, and that shows no sign of changing in the New Year. EMA will do likewise.

Obviously it's hard, when EMA is part of MAG to see how it is faring financially this financial year, and how much revenue has been lost, given the high growth rate in cargo, versus the collapse of passenger revenues. I would bet that EMA's balance sheet is a deal more healthy than much larger rivals such as MAN, STN, GLA, BHX and their like.

But you can bet that MAG will still not invest anything but the minimum they can get away with at EMA, calling the Runway resurfacing ‘investment’ is the classic example

From the passenger facilities standpoint I agree, they are pretty dire, but when one of your major passenger customers is Ryanair who would like as likely walk away from EMA is they were asked to pay more than a pittance for the terminal facilities there is little financial incentive to invest more than is absolutely necessary. There are no full service carriers, such as KL, LH, AF or EK who would require for their business class passengers some level of creature comforts and with the best will in the world, good as the are sad to be, Jet2 aren't a premium carrier either.

On the cargo side MAG would appear to have been more than willing to work with their client base to ensure a world class cargo facility, and that cooperation and investment is really paying dividends now.

DHL have signed up for 2 units at EMGateway, 900,000 sq ft.

Will this his result in increased DHL air ops, or is the Gateway facility just for the rail terminal there?

I’d be happy if they put the missing bollards back on the little central traffic islands past DHL, they are bloody dangerous at night when it’s wet, you cannot see them. I’m amazed there hasn’t been an accident along there. They have been missing for months now.

Plans are being drawn up to put in a bid to extend Nottingham’s tram system out to Derby and East Midlands Airport.

My understanding was the the NET tram connection to EMA was the be an extension from the current Clifton terminus, and it would serve new residential developments planned for the A453 corridor between Clifton and Kegworth. I'd have though the cost of putting it through from Toton (as the article suggests) would be much greater, and blight a lot more current residential property than running it from Clifton; which would probably be a faster journey as well.

But then I'm not an infrastructure planner.

The extension to Toton is linked to the Eastern arm of HS2, if it happens. Of course that would provide direct trains from Toton to BHX

Indeed, but by the time that comes to fruition, if it ever does, we'll all be teleporting!

Is the Cargologic 747 replacing one of the 767s or is it extra.
