Low-cost carrier Flybe started a new five weekly route from Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) to George Best Belfast City Airport on Friday (15 June).
Yorkshire gateway DSA continues to grow and now serves 55 destinations across Europe, and was named the UK’s best small airport by Which? Consumer Group.
The airport scored almost 20 per cent higher than any other small UK airport (under 10 million passengers) in customer satisfaction in the recent survey.
DSA aviation development director, Chris Harcombe said: “We are really excited to start this Belfast route especially as we will see the Great Yorkshire Way motorway link road right to the airport fully open at the end of this week, making travelling for our passengers even more convenient.
“This new route to Belfast offers more choice for our passengers and we are thrilled to be working closely with Flybe to put on routes that our customers want to see.”
The opening of phase two of the Great Yorkshire Way will improve access, linking Doncaster Sheffield Airport directly to the M18. The site could be made further accessible by public transport from many UK towns and cities with the addition of the proposed East Coast Mainline link to the airport, which could be in place by 2024.
