Back to overview Thursday 5 March 2015

Dublin Airport welcomes today’s announcement by Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Stobart Air, that it is to operate services to Doncaster Sheffield from May 29, 2015.

Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison said he was delighted to welcome Aer Lingus Regional’s new service to Doncaster Sheffield, which will be the airline’s fourteenth service from Dublin.

“South Yorkshire is steeped in history and has many beautiful attractions for those in search of cultural and activity breaks,” he said.

“This new route will also offer a wide range of convenient transatlantic connections via Dublin for passengers coming from this region and we look forward to working closely with Aer Lingus Regional and Stobart Air to promote this new service and enhanced connectivity between Ireland and Britain,” Mr Harrison added.

Stobart Air Business Development Director, Peter O’Mara said the airline was extremely pleased to be providing our customers with easy, convenient and great value connections and look forward to welcoming our passengers on board this new route.

"Along with direct traffic to Dublin, we will also target the transatlantic market from Doncaster. Passengers can travel to Dublin and seamlessly connect to Aer Lingus’ mainline services to the US and Canada. This will save hours of travel time and queueing in US airports by availing of US Customs and border preclearance facilities in Dublin Airport prior to boarding.”

Stobair Air’s new route will be the eighteenth new service from Dublin Airport in 2015. Flights will operate five times weekly from May until October. Dublin Airport wishes Aer Lingus Regional every success with this new service.
