Background Information

Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) is the UK’s newest purpose built international airport, having commenced operation in April 2005 on the site of the former RAF Finningley air base.  

The Airport is located 7 miles from Doncaster and 25 miles from Sheffield, serving passengers across Yorkshire, the Humber and the North Midlands.

In June 2010, Vantage Airport Group (formerly Vancouver Airport Services) acquired a 65 percent majority share in Peel Airports Limited from The Peel Group, which includes DSA.  The Peel Group retained a 35 percent share in Peel Airports Limited.

In 2011, the airport handled 840,000 passengers, with flights to over 30 destinations currently available.

Principle airlines providing services at the Airport include TUI (the world’s largest leisure company), Flybe, Ryanair, Thomas Cook and Wizz Air. 

Significant recent investment of over £100 million includes a brand new terminal.  With one of the UK’s longest runways, Doncaster Sheffield Airport has the capacity to handle all types of international aviation including charter, scheduled, long-haul, freight, general and business aviation.

A comprehensive public consultation of the Airport’s Draft Master Plan was conducted in 2009.  The Draft Master Plan outlines the vision for future development of the Airport, including the potential to grow to handle over 10 million annual passengers by 2030. Feedback received from the public consultation showed considerable support for these plans. 

Doncaster Sheffield Airport continues to develop further services and increase the range of destinations as it looks to become the airport of choice for passengers in the South Yorkshire and Sheffield City Region. 

DSA is branded after the UK national icon ‘Robin Hood’ who is known to have spent much of his life around the Doncaster area, particularly Conisbrough and Tickhill Castles.  Robin Hood is a well-known and well-loved character the world over, and one who is undeniably associated with this part of the country.  The Robin Hood brand has enabled DSA to inform people about what the area has to offer, as well as providing a ‘personality’ for the Airport.
