Ideally I'd love to see FR for DUB, AGP, and ALC, with KL for AMS.

KL does rather well at Humberside, and can bring in a lot of business and VFR pax for onward destinations from AMS. If they can make HUY, MME, NWI work on multiple daily frequencies, I have no doubt they could do the same at DSA.

Load factors for BE routes were always high, but it depends on the overall yield they were generating. Airlines with a lower cost base (eg. FR) could certainly make some of those routes work I'm sure. FR has bases in DUB, AGP, ALC, FAO, PMI, BCN etc. and could possibly make a NCL style situation work without needing to base crew or aircraft at Doncaster.

Could sound like pie in the sky though.

KLM tried Liverpool alongside Manchester not too long ago with a predictable result.

KLM were doing well from Liverpool and increased from 3 to 4 per day, that's until Easyjet saw them off.

Very good and unexpected news, they are putting their money where their mouth is. Should nicely offset the Flybe exit.

A quick search is showing FUE as a new destination weekly and the return of HER weekly.

AYT increases from 1 to 3 weekly
DLM from 2 to 5 weekly
ACE from 2 to 3 weekly
TFS from 2 to 3 weekly
AGP from 2 to 3 weekly
IBZ from 1 to 2 weekly
LCA from 1 to 2 weekly
ZTH from 2 to 3 weekly

Business routes now bucket and spade. Not ideal.

it might be an error, but, the flight radar 24 departures for Doncaster shows only 5-7 departures per day this week and the Wednesday shows one flight pre 7 am and the rest around 10 pm.... is the airport dead?

No, hibernating. With Flybe gone, that sounds about right. Early November, quietest time of the year. Just look around the other regional airports.

These are only for 2020, back down to usual frequency for 2021.

Landside Subway and WH Smiths have also shut up shop. Not sure if this is just for winter, or for good.

Not dead, but the next few years will be a massive struggle unless something can be pulled out of the bag.

I wouldnt bank on that just yet. They dont release the full schedule this early. More gets added later.

I agree, it wouldn’t make sense for them to cut all this additional capacity in S21. DSA never had TCX flights so it’s not like S20 is just to cover for that, although they may be trying to mop up customers from MAN/LBA/BHX etc. I’d imagine more will be added unless they feel they’ve gone too far and want to scale back, but surely if that was the case they would cut for S20 too...

DSA is also one of their main bases, seeing far more flights than would be expected based on the size of the airport, especially compared to some of their bases at much bigger airports. As I said, this may be making them think they’ve gone too far with the expansion but considering they have virtually no competition at DSA, it would seem silly to reduce their offering.

Wizz reductions

I couldn’t see that this has been mentioned (sorry if it has).

The new flights to Chisinau have been cancelled from DSA. My flights got changed to ridiculous replacements at LTN. I didn’t even get an email, I just happened to notice. Wizz are terrible at doing stuff like this.

Says who? They have only just added the S20 extra capacity so S21 extra capacity won't probably be sourced until next year. Rather than reaching for your sword every time to spread misinformation take a step back, I know its hard for you as you wait on tenterhooks for the slightest chink in the armour and take pleasure in negativity.

One of the pleasures of reading this thread is the relentless negativity of TimmyW.

AMP/logistics development approved which could number 4,300 jobs, part of the overall site masterplan.
