TimmyW, I'll have a wager with you.

Peels estimates are that in order to break even or their operations at MME, DSA and LPL based on current operational footprint - each needs to be handling:

MME - 550,000 PPA
DSA - 750,000 PPA
LPL - 3m PPA
LPL is doing fine tenth largest airport in UK over five million passengers per year
And more investment, with new airlines, plus work to start late summer

CAA Stats

Well thats the writing on the wall for some of us then! (Teesside MME)
As posted,14th June on DTV thread. Certainly not 550,000 PPA to break even!

Good luck DSA, I think you have a better chance than here up north

MME stats.
"CAA provisional stats for May 2012
13,628 passengers for the month, down 16.5%
175,058 passengers for the last 12 months, down 24.8%
8,406 passengers on the Amsterdam route, down 7%.

DSA and LPL are owned by Peel Airports Limited, which is 65% owned by Vantage Airport Group (formerly Vancouver Airport Services) and 35% by The Peel Group.

Although the Peel Group also owns Manchester City Airport and Durham Tees Valley Airport, they aren't part of Peel Airports Limited.

Its a Peel company.

A bit of Peel history and what they own according to them.

Historic timeline - The Peel Group

The Peel owner is now worth 2,075 million!

He lives in Billown Mansion on the Isle of Man

Its all about land and not aviation with Peel.

Those pax figures needed to break even, how legitimate are they? For example, in 2009, Liverpool 5.1 million pax, 8.84 million loss I've seen reports of them hoping to secure their first profitable year of operations in 2008 but nothing subsequently declaring profits.

@Ringwayman - Those figures are based on every pax and every flight being in line with the fee schedules issues each year by each airport. EZY continues to get a good deal at LPL, so naturally, they aren't paying the fee schedule. In fact, I'd doubt anyone at LPL is.

Another made up story then . And I get shot down for suggesting Monarch . But they ate as possible as anyone I guess . I did notice though that Bodrum seems to be listed as a destination on Thomson next summer , not sure if it is a current choice

It seems Bodrum was never removed from the booking system when searching for Doncaster flight / holidays after it was dropped as a destination for this summer season. It's not a current choice for DSA and is not currently planned for next summer either.

Peel snippet

If you would like more details on the Peel millions and how the publics cash is being given to them, have a look at the DTV thread to save adding it all here.

Makes you wonder just who they have on the inside at government level while running airports into the ground doesnt it

It's actually called City of Manchester airport by Peel so you do not to think it is connected with football. (Yes its still open, grass runways only)

From 'Travel Mole':

TUI increases holidays from South Yorkshire

TUI has announced it will offer more holidays from South Yorkshire following news of an improved road link between Doncaster Sheffield Airport and the centre of Sheffield.

TUI brands Thomson and First Choice will initially offer an extra 14,000 holidays from the airport for summer 2013.

Airport director Steve Gill said: "We expected the new road to bring additional benefits to the South Yorkshire passenger and with over 150,000 Thomson and First Choice holidays on offer from Doncaster Sheffield Airport in summer 2013 we are pleased that we remain Yorkshire"s largest operation for the company."

TUI has two Thomson Airways 737-800s based at the airport. Extra capacity will be offered next summer on flights to Palma, Dalaman and Reus.

Paul Cooper, from Thomson and First Choice, said: "The news that the Finningley and Rossington Regeneration Route Scheme link road has taken a step forward is something we have been waiting to hear for DSA.

"We are confident that this new road will open up key markets in Sheffield for us and help to attract passengers from the city."

The scheme includes the opening of a new link road from Junction 3 of the M18 serving the south-east of Doncaster, improving access to the airport from Sheffield, Rotherham and further afield.

The new road is expected to reduce journey times for airport passengers and cargo operators from Sheffield by up to 20 minutes.

Construction of the road is expected to start later this year and be operational in early 2014.
