Offering unrivalled customer experience from the moment of arrival, the airport scored almost 20% higher than any other small UK airport (under 10 million passengers) in customer satisfaction in the recent survey.
Chris Harcombe, Aviation Development Director at DSA comments: “We are really excited to start this Belfast route especially as we will see the Great Yorkshire Way motorway link road right to the airport fully open at the end of this week, making travelling for our passengers even more convenient.
“This new route to Belfast offers more choice for our passengers and we are thrilled to be working closely with Flybe to put on routes that our customers want to see.”
Flybe Chief Commercial Officer, Roy Kinnear, said: “Doncaster is a new destination for Flybe from Belfast and really strengthens our offering to customers travelling to and from the Yorkshire region. The airport is conveniently located just 5km from Doncaster and less than 30km from Sheffield and we look forward to welcoming on board even more passengers now there is improved accessibility to it following the completion of phase two of the Great Yorkshire Way.”
The opening of phase two of the Great Yorkshire Way will improve access, linking Doncaster Sheffield Airport directly to the M18. The site could be made further accessible by public transport from many UK towns and cities with the addition of the proposed East Coast Mainline link to the airport, which could be in place by 2024.
