Further expansion at Doncaster Sheffield Airport brings more choice for customers

Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) and TUI reveal their ambitious bounce-back plan with more seats on sale than ever before.

With two new Summer destinations also on offer, there’s even more choice for passengers from Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.

This expansion announcement from TUI means Summer 22 is set to be the biggest on record at DSA with passenger numbers set to grow to more than 1.7 million, potentially exceeding traffic levels of 2019 by more than 30%.

The TUI S22 schedule includes two new summer destinations to Faro (Portugal) and Hurghada (Egypt) and additional capacity of almost 200,000 seats to a host of popular holiday hotspots such as Palma and Malaga (Spain), Corfu, Crete and Kos (Greece).

The summer schedule also heralds the return of long-haul from DSA to Cancun (Mexico) and Sandford (Florida).

Kate Stow, Director of Aviation Development and Corporate Affairs, Doncaster Sheffield Airport, said: “We’re immensely proud of our long-standing relationship with TUI and its continued commitment to regional airports and this relationship has been fundamental to our growth story at DSA.

“We’re already seeing strong demand from customers who haven’t had the chance for a summer getaway for over a year.

“This impressive S22 schedule provides customers even more choice for a holiday in the sun with friends and family.

“As well as two new destinations, TUI have increased flights to 12 existing holiday destinations to cope with the appetite for foreign travel that we know is there and will kick-start as soon as international travel is well and truly opened up again.

“We’re looking ahead to a record-breaking year and would advise customers to think about booking for Summer 2022 now.”
