Busy Bank Holiday Weekend Expected for Robin Hood AirportAugust 23, 2012
The August Bank holiday is expected to be the busiest weekend of the year for Doncaster Sheffield Airport with over 12,000 passengers expected to travel through the airport.
With further rain set to dampen more than just spirits, the attraction of some much needed summer sunshine is likely to see a late surge of holidaymakers taking the opportunity for some end of season hotter weather, following yet another disappointing British Summer.
Many of the most popular Mediterranean sunshine destinations are all just a short flight away from Doncaster Sheffield Airport. Spain, Greece Turkey and Poland are amongst the more popular European destinations for travelers from the Airport, served by operators such as Thomson, First Choice, Thomas Cook, Wizz Air and Ryanair.
Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Peel Airports, commented: “Whilst the recession and the poor weather are doing their best to dampen spirits, it appears that the chance to jet off somewhere warm or get away for an exciting city break is still important to the region’s passengers. The great range of destinations on offer from here for passengers in South Yorkshire and beyond, look like proving irresistible for many.”
