Yes, and not forget Sheffield, a beautiful city where many Italians study in its universities. I know that many flights for Manchester with Jet2.com from Rome FCO are full of students for Sheffield.

That's interesting Charter, I never knew that! DSA's problem has always been attracting foreign pax (aside from the large eastern European market served by Wizz). Resting Jet2 away from Leeds-Bradford would be a huge challenge though. A shame; my father worked in the RAF and was based at Finningley until 1996 with one of the chaps who went on to found Jet2. If he'd taken the job offered him back in 2003 when Jet2 started up perhaps he could have influenced them to create a base at DSA! Ah well...hindsight and all that...

Re: Robin Hood Doncaster/Sheffield News Thread

I think that just Jet2.com or Monarch could start flights to Robin Hood Airport from Rome FCO, if an when the ask for tourism, job and university will arrive at a good level.
Positive rep. well deserved and added for this thread. I would like to see more threads like this about airports around the world.

***OFFICIAL FLYBE ROUTE ANNOUNCEMENT***

Slight differences from original forecast routes, Aberdeen and Dusseldorf are not on the flight list, instead Newquay features.

Re: Robin Hood Doncaster/Sheffield News Thread

I see they are recruiting now on Robin Hood Airport website. I hope we don't recruit too many though. The more hours the better in my opinion (for me at least). Schedules are looking good. Nightshifts should be a bit more interesting if they have more of us on.

Re: Robin Hood Doncaster/Sheffield News Thread

I have no idea how on earth Doncaster-Newquay will work at 3 weekly with a E195. I can't see it lasting long.

It struck me as an odd one too. I would have thought a daily Q400 might work, but 3x weekly with a E195 seems hit and miss. Still, it is Yorkshire's only direct service to Cornwall which might help. For flights to Newquay our current choice is Newcastle or Manchester, which isn't really any choice at all.

Similarly Berlin from DSA is Yorkshire's only service to the German capital.

May as well drive to cornwall with that sort of distance to the nearet airport .
I wish flybe would expand its services at Newcastle, a flight to TXL would be very welcome.

Exactly Kestrel, NCL is perfect for the 'real' North East but for us Yorkies it means a lengthy detour round the North York Moors and by that time you could have been 2 hours closer to Newquay anyway haha!

As far as I can tell, DSA and BHX are the only Flybe bases that currently have direct service to Berlin.

You are correct, BHX and DSA are the only ones. At NCL we have a Eurowings flight to Dusseldorf with the A320 and CRJ-900 but to get to Berlin you may aswell just fly to the more convenient Amsterdam to connect to Berlin.

I've been looking at 'likely lads' for DSA judging from trends at other UK airports. I can see Blue Air making a move with perhaps Bacau or Iasi. Air Malta is also a possibility with a seasonal Luqa flight.

Being a bit more far-fetched now; we have no Ryanair or Easyjet presence at DSA. How about Norwegian getting in here first?
