Isn't the East Coast Main Line already near capacity?

As a supporter of the airport this is to me, just another spin of the Peel PR machine which has been in force since day one.

Who stands to reap the rewards the most - Peel. As a consequence of the land they will sell/lease.

Where will the £280M come from - the hope is that funding will come from a mixture of private and public money procured from both regional and national Government.

Wildly unsubstantiated figures from Peel (who were well out on the last masterplan). Before any apologists state other factors got in the way, they can also do so in the future.

The figures quoted are an inflation of the very best outcome and not reality in my opinion.

Very ambitious plans indeed but I have to say it looks good.

If DSA could secure an ambitious airline for the long term growth potential and with the possibility of a large fleet based at the airport covering a wide network these plans for development could well be seen in the future, but if only, otherwise it's just what it is an idea!

Complete pie in the sky. Just look at the size of the GA apron to stat with.

No doubt phase 1 will be selling land off for house building.

Very impressive. Has the potential to turn not just the immediate area, but most of West and East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire into a genuine economic powerhouse.

Doncaster and the wider South Yorkshire area have been very good at attracting infrastructure investment in recent years, I would not be at all surprised if the ECML spur was quickly funded and delivered, especially as the government will want to be seen to be making a success of the newly devolved Sheffield City Region.

Add in the forthcoming upgrades to the road network (A1(M) upgrade, Trans Pennine Tunnel and new M1>M18/M180 link) and this could be huge.

My only criticism is that there is no direct rail link to Sheffield and no mention of potential connectivity to HS3, if it ever gets green lit.

I don't share your optimism about this going ahead, but if it did direct trains could serve Sheffield with a reverse at Doncaster

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?
