TUI, the UK’s largest holiday company, has announced their biggest ever holiday programme with the addition of new destinations; Fuerteventura (Canaries) and Heraklion (Greece) added to its summer 2020 programme from Doncaster Sheffield Airport.

Doncaster Sheffield Airport will also see additional flying days to TUI customer favourites such as Antalya (Turkey), Palma (Spain) and Zakynthos (Greece), giving holiday makers from the North more choice when booking next year’s summer holiday.    

TUI UK&I’s Director of Aviation Planning, Karen Switzer said: “Earlier this month TUI announced an additional two million seats to many holiday destination favourites and today the majority of these seats go on sale for summer 2020. We are delighted that our new additions launched today provide holidaymakers departing from our regional airports with even more choice when deciding where to go next summer on holiday. The customer is at the heart of everything we do and this additional growth to some of our customer’s favourite holiday hotspots demonstrates our continued commitment for people to discover their smile with us. “

Robert Hough, Chairman of Doncaster Sheffield Airport, said: “Today’s announcement from TUI builds upon a range of routes that has allowed Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) to grow more than any other UK airport in 2019.  We are delighted to offer our customers more choice with more TUI flights on more days of the week to the most popular sunspots.   

“This is a fantastic show of confidence from TUI, who have been our partners since 2005 and with whom we share many common attributes, not least of which is a commitment to providing an Easy, Friendly and Relaxed and award-winning service that our customers can trust.

“This will be DSA’s busiest year on record as we have enjoyed a strong performance in 2019 with new long-haul routes to Sanford, Florida and Cancun, Mexico.  We were proud to be judged as the UK and North’s best airport for the third year running by Which? magazine and we will be looking to fulfil our ambitious plans for growth and delivering the next stage of our Masterplan.”
