East Midlands Airport liquid bags

Are liquid bags provided free at security?

No, I don't think so, but suitable bags can be purchased. There are bag vending machines in the check-in hall before security, offering two bags for £1

You should be able to get them at around £2 for 40 bags at any supermarket.

We took two liquid bags last summer that were deemed by the security bloke to be too big. It was like centimetres difference. Anyway, he did give us two correct ones without even asking for payment or anything.

Boring and pedantic I know, but Derby is the nearest city to East Midlands Airport.

I agree the nearest town is Derby, but that doesn't alter the fact that EMA is in Leicestershire. Not important of course except that some Leicestershire folk find it a little irritating.

"Some airports give them free" I didn't realise some tight airports made you pay for them.
