Today is expected to have been the busiest day of the year for East Midlands Airport, as nearly 10,000 passengers jetted off for the remainder of the Christmas and New Year break.
It's a 14% increase on last year's numbers with the Canary Islands and the Mediterranean the top destinations.
It comes after the recent completion of a runway resurfacing project, which saw 150,000 square metres of tarmac replaced, along with over 1,200 lights.
Around 2,800 runners are due to take part in a charity run round East Midlands Airport this weekend.
The event is the first time runners will be able to run round the airport site, whilst it undertakes its runway resurfacing project.
Those taking part will be able to run a 10k and 2k route and will be raising funds for the airport’s charity CLIC Sargent on Sunday 27th November.
Athletes of all abilities will be able to take in the unique surroundings of the airport which is usually only accessible by staff.
The closure of the airport for the runway maintenance only happens every 15 to 20 years. It therefore gave us the opportunity to host a family running event which is ideal for people of all ages and abilities.
