Head of marketing for Peel has stated on Linked In more than one long haul destination to be announced for DSA on Monday.

I'm guessing its the return of TUI doing long haul with the likes of Orlando Sanford and Cancun like they did pre recession.

Would be good to see a return of the 2006/08 charters to Orlando and Cancun from TUI. Without being too gready returning the final based aircraft from that time period would top it off.

Its long-haul programme will see Tuiís first flight from Doncaster/Sheffield to Orlando Sanford, Florida, where it will offer more villa and self-catering options in-destination.

From Doncaster/Sheffield, Tui will add 110,000 seats including new routes to Pula, Croatia, Hurghada, Egypt, Kos, Greece and Bodrum, Turkey

Think it's safe to say next year will be the return of Turkey, be interesting to see what happens with Spain and Portugal given they've been driving their prices up massively this year because of perceived lack of interest in Turkey etc

Looking at the official press release Enfidha is one of the signs being held up, but it isn't listed on the "new routes" list. More of a resumption I guess.... best to tell Look North who are going with the "first long haul route in the region".

2006 called, they want their headline back!

Wizz Air are currently advertising for cabin crew to be based out of Doncaster.

Now, currently, no Wizz flights originate at DSA, so I am wondering if this is a sign that things are about to change?

They aren't advertising for based crew, its a recruitment day in the local area. If you look at the careers site it says base next to bases but not for BHX or DSA.

In other good news this week, Cluj goes from 2 to 3 weekly this winter.

It is great news for DSA this past week, I think pax numbers maybe lower this year with 2 routes axed by Wizz but shouldn't be too drastic with some increased capacity served on their other routes and extra offerings by TUI.

Is the Embraer 195 returning for Flybe or are we having the two based Embraer 175?

If we retain all Wizz and Flybe routes then 2019 is going to be a cracking year for our airport.

Still - why the need to recruit cabin crew from the DSA area as it states?

It's simply trying a different talent pool than their usual net being cast. It's something I do for my own company when the usual spots don't find something I'm looking for.

No need to look into it too much, if you watch when new bases are announced THEN ads go out for base crew. Egg before the chicken.

FlyBe's Donny-based flight crew are great. It actually makes a difference if, as a passenger, you are from the same area as the crew.

Good to see all these routes return to DSA and back on sale. Of course with the new addition of Hurghada now going year round.

Any idea why a Ryanair aircraft was doing circuits over DSA today. Pilot training?

This happens reasonably frequently with Ryanair, EasyJet and Flybe. I suppose it is convenient with the long, wide runway and most flights concentrated in the morning and evening.

Thanks for that. Although I live fairly close (20 miles away) I'm not on the flight path and wasn't aware of these flights.

Do we have any reasons why pax numbers were lower this January and February compared to last year? Did we have less flights operated? Just curious. The winter program is low, on some Wednesdays, only 4 flights per day.

Exactly that. BE had a single aircraft based at DSA this past winter compared to two in the past. AGP, PMI, FAO were completely stopped for the winter season.
