TUI has responded to EMA’s increased passenger demand and, next year, will add a sixth aircraft to its fleet based at the airport. This will allow them to fly 85 flights a week in the peak summer months of summer 2024 to 27 destinations in 10 different countries.

TUI’s increased capacity means 100,000 additional seats for passengers offering more choice and flexibility for those wanting either a short break or a longer holiday, including:
  • 31 flights per week to Spain
  • 16 weekly flights to the Balearics
  • nine flights a week to the Canaries
  • six weekly flights to mainland Spain
  • 25 flights a week to eight destinations in Greece
  • 10 weekly flights to Turkey
  • six flights a week to support the Marella Cruise programme to Corfu, Dalaman, Dubrovnik and Palma de Mallorca
  • more than 60,000 seats to Cyprus and 39,000 to Egypt
  • flying exclusively from EMA to Enfidha (Tunisia) and Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh (Egypt)
As well as more flights to destinations already served by them, TUI will also introduce a new route to Sal, Cape Verde, an island off the coast of West Africa.

TUI’s continued investment and commitment to provide its largest ever offer at East Midlands Airport reflects the increasing confidence that passenger numbers are quickly returning to pre-Covid levels. This year EMA expects to welcome four million passengers whereas pre-Covid numbers peaked at around 4.8 million.

Welcoming TUI’s news, Steve Griffiths, East Midlands Airport’s Managing Director, said: “We are delighted that our passengers will have an even greater choice of flights to their favourite destinations next summer. TUI’s decision to increase its capacity by 40% is significant as it will mean its EMA operation EMA will be the biggest it has ever been. It is fantastic for those who wish to fly quickly and easily to their favourite holiday destinations.”

Andrew Flintham, TUI’s Managing Director, said: “Our customers want more flexibility and to be able to choose a departure airport that is close to home – and that is exactly what the new TUI 2024 summer programme has been designed to do. We want every one of our customers to be able to create a holiday as unique as they are – departure airport, destination and duration are all key components which come together to make the perfect TUI holiday.

“The 2024 programme will see extra flights departing from across the UK. East Midlands Airport will see a significant increase in flight seats offering more holidays to those living in the region.”
