Nominees are shortlisted by the number of votes they receive from travel agents across the UK, who also vote for the eventual winner.
With almost 5 million passengers flying to and from EMA each year, the airport has established itself as a hub for low fare airlines such as Jet2.com and Ryanair and tour operators like TUI Airways which serve over 80 domestic and European short-haul destinations as well as Cancun in Mexico and Orlando in the US. It is also a base for BMI Regional and Thomas Cook Airlines. It’s cargo operation is the UK’s second largest after Heathrow’s.
Heidi Barlow, EMA’s Head of Marketing, says: “We’re really excited about our nomination and I want to thank all those who voted for us. We hope our partners in the trade continue to provide their support and back us to win the award, which would be an amazing achievement when you consider who we’re in competition with. Being a smaller airport in terms of passenger numbers appeals to a lot of people because we’re seen as relatively hassle free and more personable, which we really pride ourselves on.”
The winner of the award will be announced at a ceremony on Thursday 11 January.
