The future of Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) has been thrown into doubt after bosses said the business "may no longer be commercially viable".

operator Wizz Air quit the airport in june

Combination impact of the coronavirus pandemic and a shortfall in passenger numbers forced Wizz Air to quit

Now Tui is the only sole carrier operating from DSA

Chairman Robert Hough said:

"The actions by Wizz to sacrifice its base at Doncaster to shore up its business opportunities at other bases in the South of England are a significant blow for the airport."

Since the Peel Group acquired the site in 1999 and converted it into an international commercial airport, which opened in 2005, it said it had invested significant amounts of money.

The company said it had concluded that "aviation activity may no longer be the use for the site which delivers the maximum economic and environmental benefit to the region".

Mr Hough said: "Now is the right time to review how DSA can best create future growth opportunities for Doncaster and for South Yorkshire.

The company said the airport would operate as normal while a review was carried out and passengers should plan for their journeys as normal.
