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
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.

Looks very similar to one of the plans they tried to float at Teesside or DTVA when they owned it.

Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) is pleased to announce TUI’s expansion at DSA will be further accelerated with the addition of an extra aircraft operating from the airport for its winter 2020/21 programme launched today.
Robert Hough CBE, Chairman of Doncaster Sheffield Airport, said:“The addition of Cape Verde as a new route announced in TUI’s winter 2020 programme, is great news for Doncaster Sheffield Airport. With this latest expansion, together with flights to Sanford, Florida and Cancun, Mexico, we are truly the home of long-haul in Yorkshire.

Smart move from TUI, their commitment may just about keep any initiative Peel may have had to entice Easy Holidays on the back burner.

Good news for the airport! They’re really emphasising the idea that Cape Verde is long-haul. On the other hand, TUI class it as medium-haul and it will almost certainly be on the 737.

easyJet holidays are merely holidays sold on easyJet’s existing network. I personally don’t foresee any new bases or flights from DSA explicitly off the back of the holidays business.

That would I believe understate the knowledge, experience and previous achievements of TUI’s ex management who we’re given to believe are about to launch an assault on the IT market with Easy’s Holiday business.

Its true that Ex TUI bods have been recruited to launch that side of the business but as things stand I don’t foresee easyJet returning to DSA specifically because of easyJet holidays. I’m not saying easyJet wouldn’t launch DSA flights but they would be additions to the airline network with holidays simply sold on those flights.

Great to see the extra winter based aircraft, which in addition to new destination allows 10/12 night options to the Canaries destinations. Good also to see Cancun starting earlier in March 2021 so forward bookings must be good for 2020.

Also the car park will be expanded southwards of the terminal next year and plans are afoot for another hotel.

Wizz have just cut the Budapest route.

That's 3 lost Wizz routes in the last couple of months. Worrying.

You've been a worried man for a long time, Timmy! Weren't they pulling out moving to MAN in 2012?
