Yes if you can call it that. There is a small cage outside the building opposite gate 17 on the ground floor.

We are flying out to Corfu on the 30th of June, I have heard from friends who have used the airport very recently that the queues for security are very bad. Should we give more than the 2 hours to get through? We do not want to miss our flight.

There were no problems with security when we used East Midlands Airport. However, things may have changed since our flight which was 18 months ago. We always try to allow more then 2 hours when we fly out, but that is just us being very cautious. Good luck with your flight.

Having just used it two weeks ago things have improved since 2 months ago. The queues for security were mainly due to the fact that only one person was usually on duty at the entrance to check boarding cards although you could buy an express ticket to get you straight through for £3. However, flying out again two weeks ago, the boarding card checker has now been replaced with auto entry by placing your boarding card bar code onto a card reader and entry is straight away. No queues at all two weeks ago at 13:00 hrs. A vast improvement. Most check in desks at EMA open 3 hours before flight but not many people are aware of that.
