I work at the airport, and I can say after the last few days we are all expecting the worse. The management are usually very positive but even they believe this will be the final straw.

​​​​​Very sad, but I guess this is an unprecedented situation.
Its very depressing people throwing doom at this airport so frequently .

Flight radar 24 is showing a Magma 747 heading into Doncaster. Would this be correct?

Yes, there is a 3 x weekly freight service covered by Magma/Astral 747 and WGA MD11.

DSA seems to be reasonably busy with it's cargo business, based aircraft and maintenance contractors.

My theory is they will have a lower cost base than the larger airports, and while bleeding from the temporary loss of passengers, it might not be the stab in the heart that other regional airports have suffered, especially with the estate to service the large cargo operators.

Think it's to do with having regular widebody freighters continuing to operate, so had the resources to handle the additional freight traffic whereas many other regional airports didn't

I see current 767F on ground arrival from Almaty. Just out of interest what do we import from Kazakhstan into DSA?

Came from Xian with a stop on the way. Lots of recent Russian 777 visitors coming from China via home stops in Moscow.

Also good to see the scheduled cargo services getting a recent permanent frequency uplift.

I'm sure I read on another thread that these flights actually originate in China but stop in Kazakhstan.

Good news on the cargo front.

Wish same could be said on the passenger side.

Two wizz routes and one TUI route cut today.

Unfortunately can't see any positives on that side of things for the time being.

Also, seems to be no indication of when will be resuming flights to Doncaster, despite them resuming at other UK airports.

​​​​​They've been on sale for last couple of weeks earlier than that, then the flights don't actually operate

Didn't i say it was positive response regarding cargo?

Not sure how else you can view the loss of routes as anything but negative. Its not like the airport has a large network of routes to start with.
