History
Originally RAF Castle Donington but was closed in 1946. East Midlands Airport was bought by a consortium of local government authorities and opened in 1965. The airfield was established with a 5,850ft runway, taxiway, new hangar floor, aprons, and car parking spaces.The runway and terminal were extended in 1970. In the late 1970s the runway was extended further to 7,490ft and the terminal was upgraded. In 1985, the terminal was extended further and the airport became a public limited company in 1987. In 1993, the airport was purchased by National Express Group who extended the runway to handle long haul flights and constructed a new control tower.

In 2000, DHL Aviation opened a new cargo facility on the site and a business park was built next to the airport.
