New Flybe routes to Dublin and Dusseldorf from Doncaster Sheffield airport are to be continued into next summer.

A total of 10 destinations will be served from the Yorkshire airport in summer 2017 with capacity raised by 35,000 seats over this year as 96 flights a week are operated.

The other city destinations to be served are Amsterdam, Berlin and Paris plus the continuation of flights to Alicante, Faro and Malaga. Daily flights to Jersey will operate together with a peak summer service to Newquay.

Flights have gone on sale starting at £29.99 one way for travel from March 26 to through to August 13.

The regional carrier’s chief revenue officer, Vincent Hodder, said: “Doncaster Sheffield airport is proving itself as the very best, most convenient airport for Sheffield business travellers.

“We have been pleased to see increasing numbers of customers using our services. Over the last 12 months we have continued to grow and develop the routes we are offering to provide the most cost-effective, efficient and flexible service we can.

“I am particularly pleased that we have been able to create a schedule that carries over to summer 2017 the two new winter routes to Dusseldorf and Dublin that start next month, as well as continue through our sun routes and flights to other key Euro city destinations.

“Flybe’s codeshare partners also offer regional customers extensive opportunities to enjoy seamless long haul travel. This benefits those looking for onward connections meaning there is now no need to go anywhere near the large hectic London hub airports.”

Airport chief executive, Steve Gill, added: “We are delighted that Flybe will be strengthening their relationship with Doncaster Sheffield Airport as it extends the Dublin and Dusseldorf routes, which take off for winter next month, into our summer programme.

“Flybe has been a very welcome addition to the airport and we’ve had a record breaking summer thanks to the additional routes it has introduced coupled with the added convenience of the Great Yorkshire Way, the new motorway link road from Junction 3 of the M18, improving access to the airport.”
