Six million pound investment for runway resurfacing at Yorkshire Airport

One of the longest runways in the North of England is being resurfaced thanks to a £6m investment from Peel Airports.

The 2891 metre long runway at Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) is being strengthened and resurfaced with work taking place in the evening to minimise any disruption to flights.

Chris Harcombe, head of aviation development from Doncaster Sheffield Airport said: "Work is now underway on this project to strengthen and resurface our runway.

"We are extremely proud to have one of the longest runways in the North of England and we are working to removing 25mm of surface and replace this with 50mm increasing the strength and overall life span of the runway surface for present and future operations.

"We have worked closely with all of our airline partners and the council to ensure that the works can take place with minimal impact on passenger flights and local traffic.

"This investment from Peel Airports further demonstrates our continued commitment to the Sheffield City Region and the ambition the airport has for the future.

"Last year was our busiest ever with 1.2m passengers flying from DSA. The runway is our key asset and this significant investment will set us well for future growth."

Doncaster Sheffield Airport flies to more than 40 destinations.
