Launch of easyJet 's operations from Doncaster Sheffield Airport


Passengers are set to take off from Doncaster at the start of easyJet's new operations (April 19) when the inaugural flight of five new routes takes off for Amsterdam.



Tourism chiefs, MPs and business partners joined passengers in a celebration to mark the first easyJet flight to fly from Doncaster under the new partnership.


Mike Morton, Airport Director for Doncaster Sheffield Airport said: "This is a massive milestone for the airport and we wanted to celebrate with our key stakeholders, partners and passengers.


"Each passenger on the first flight will receive a special certificate to show they were a part of this historical moment.

"The five new routes to Amsterdam, Prague, Barcelona, Faro and Majorca open up new markets to us and will make Doncaster Sheffield Airport a more attractive offering to businesses and passengers from across the region as well as for European visitors looking for best way to visit South Yorkshire."


A taste of Amsterdam will be on offer to help passengers start their journey early and a special celebratory cake in the shape of a windmill will be cut by Mike Morton and Nick Smillie from Peel Airports and Ali Gayward from easyJet.
