Airport Statement – Flybe Belfast and Amsterdam routes
A spokesperson for Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) said:
“Despite the withdrawal of these two routes, we are still expecting a record year having launched more routes since August last year than any other UK airport.
Flybe are currently going through a rescue strategy, making major changes to their business model to try and secure their future as part of the recent takeover. This coupled with challenges on slot availability and wider industry uncertainty has led to the removal of these routes from DSA and a number of others across UK Airports.
From a DSA perspective, the Amsterdam and Belfast routes have proved popular with a 25% increase in passenger numbers over the summer versus last year, with near full aircraft.
We look forward to another strong year for Doncaster Sheffield Airport, thanks to our continuing partnerships with our growing airlines Wizz Air and TUI”
