Planning your trip

Time is of the essence

Your holiday starts the moment you arrive at Doncaster Sheffield Airport.

We’ve got smiley faces to help you through check-in, a World Duty Free store for bargain luxury goods and a perfect place to relax for some delicious food and drink before you fly. But only if you give yourself time by planning ahead.

Check out your check-in

Start by finding out from your travel agent or airline when you need to arrive. Our check-in times vary from three hours to 40 minutes before departure depending on which airline you’re travelling with, although we’d always recommend that you arrive at least two hours before you need to board.

Expect the unexpected

Whether you’re traveling to us by car, bus or train you should make sure you leave plenty of time to make the trip. Up-to-the-minute journey information is available on but you should always build in a bit of time for delays.

If you’re driving you should use an online route planner to find out how long it would normally take to get from your home to the airport and then add on some time. You don’t want to be stuck in a traffic jam whilst your flight is taking off.

Stay closer

To be extra sure of avoiding any last minute hiccups why not take advantage of our fantastic airport hotels? They provide an opportunity to extend your holiday and relax in the knowledge that you’re just a short walk or taxi ride away.
