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! Theyíre 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 easyJetís existing network. I personally donít 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 TUIís ex management who weíre given to believe are about to launch an assault on the IT market with Easyís Holiday business.

Its true that Ex TUI bods have been recruited to launch that side of the business but as things stand I donít foresee easyJet returning to DSA specifically because of easyJet holidays. Iím not saying easyJet wouldnít 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.

Probably due to Easter?

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?

2012 is irrelevant. What is concerning now at the huge loss of routes over the last few months at DSA. Whatever the reason, it hardly gives confidence for the future of the airport to operate passenger services.

The airport haven't managed to replace any of the lost FlyBe or Wizz routes. Ask yourself why.

Yet all they talk about is their huge growth etc etc. That will look pretty stupid, when they are back down to 600k passengers again.

Timmy, bore off. As SWBKCB said what happened to all your previous trolling doom predictions.

Two flights a week to Chisinau won't happen as there is surprisingly no local market for Moldova and Wizz probably found a more lucrative route for the aircraft doing the two flights to Budapest - they will probably replace them with other routes. Disappointing but not a massive loss considering the new 2nd based TUI for the winter and new 4th based TUI for summer that you have conveniently forgotten about. They will happily put your doom prediction to bed and see the airport on or above 1.3 million passengers again.

B- for effort, try harder next time.

If there's no market, then why announce the route?
The loss of routes is massive. 3 from Wizz plus the FlybE ones, with zero chance of them being replaced.

The TUI expansion is by no means certain, given they don't have enough aircraft to operate their summer programme.

You really are a troll, of course TUI will have capacity which will come from various sources. They know a lot more than you about running a business.

Before spreading unsubstantiated rumours about TUI (as obviously you will be working in the fleet department) do you want to share some proof?

Chisinau was probably announced to cover Iasi and its surrounding area and it didn't work out as planned.

I think Wizz are pretty well established at Doncaster and Liverpool for their North of England ops.

Even with BUD dropped from March, Wizz will operate 39x weekly flights over 12x routes from DSA in August 2020, pretty impressive given LBAs RYR base will now only see 56x weekly flights over 14x routes next August due to cuts.

In August 2020, the weekly Wizz schedule from DSA (and competition from neighbouring airports) will be as follows:

Poland - 22x weekly
GDN
- 5x weekly (LBA - 4x weekly with RYR)
KTW - 5x weekly
WAW - 4x weekly (LBA - 2x weekly to WMI with RYR / EMA - 2x weekly to WMI with RYR)
KRK - 3x weekly (LBA - 3x weekly with RYR & 2x weekly with EXS / EMA - 3x weekly with RYR)
POZ - 3x weekly
WRO - 2x weekly (LBA - 2x weekly with RYR / EMA - 4x weekly with RYR)

Romania - 9x weekly
OTP
- 4x weekly
CLJ - 3x weekly
TSR - 2x weekly

Latvia - 3x weekly
RIX
- 3x weekly (LBA - Route cancelled by RYR / EMA - 3x weekly with RYR)

Lithuania - 3x weekly
VNO
- 3x weekly (LBA - Route cancelled by RYR)

Hungary - 2x weekly
DEB
- 2x weekly
BUD - Cancelled (LBA - 2x weekly with EXS / EMA - 3x weekly with RYR)

Not sure DSA will survive the next few months as flights are cancelled.
