Youíre absolutely correct. UPS have had their base at EMA for about 25 years from the initial 757 flights.

From what I remember, the early transatlantic flights were on stretched DC8ís.

In addition, reading some of the above posts gives the impression that EMA built the new hub for UPS. I may be wrong, but whilst they obviously facilitated its construction, it is my understanding that the majority of the £138 million cost was funded by UPS?

If my information is wrong then I'll happily accept that I'm wrong.

While an investor was first set to be finalised in spring, the mayor revealed today that the procurement process has been extended.

An investor is now set to be appointed in late summer, following requests from potential candidates for more time to prepare their business cases.

Despite the change in timescale, the council stated that progress is still expected to be made throughout spring.

In a cabinet meeting on June 19, the mayor will share updates on the South Yorkshire Airport City programme, the long-term plan to re-open the airport with a surrounding hub of investment.
