TUI has said its last flight from Doncaster Sheffield Airport will be on 4 November 2022, after the airport’s owner Peel Group said it would shut within weeks.

A TUI spokesperson told Travel Gossip the last flights on 4 November were for inbound passengers only.

Customers due to fly out from Doncaster Sheffield once TUI’s services have ended are being contacted with alternative options and the operator has said it will add more capacity from other northern hubs.

TUI CEO Andrew Flintham said: “Our flights continue to operate as planned until our last flight on 4 November 2022. We’re working closely with our customers and colleagues on the required next steps.

“Doncaster customers will be contacted, in departure date order, in the coming weeks to outline their alternatives and options which will, at the very least, include the option to amend to another holiday for free or cancel and receive a full refund.

The operator, which is the only one to serve DSA, will increase capacity at East Midlands, Leeds Bradford and Manchester.

East Midlands will have twice-weekly new routes to Antalya and Hurghada for summer 2023, while services from Leeds Bradford will be expanded to Dalaman, Antalya – both twice a week – and a weekly service to Dubrovnik, which will connect with Marella Cruises itineraries.

Additional flights have also been added to existing destinations from all three airports, to the Balearic Islands, Canary Islands mainland Spain, Greece, Turkey, Cyprus and Egypt.

TUI says there will be more than half a million seats to Greece, over 300,000 seats to Turkey and more than 380,000 seats to the Balearic Islands on offer from the three airports in summer 2023. 

Five flights per week will depart the region to Orlando-Melbourne Airport in Florida, with more than 80,000 seats available.  

Commercial and Business Development Director Richard Sofer said: “Not only does this reconfirm our commitment to customers in the region, but it also shows our support for regional airports and the value they bring to the UK.”
