Closure of Doncaster Sheffield Airport

In June 2022, the owners of Doncaster Sheffield Airport, the Peel Group, announced plans to close the Airport citing a lack of commercial viability.

Since that date, Doncaster Council, South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority and partners have been working tirelessly to find solutions to ensure there is a future for the Airport in Doncaster.

Leaders at City of Doncaster Council continue to progress a solution to reopening the site which could unlock millions of pounds worth of investment and jobs. South Yorkshire Airport City (SYAC) is the name of the programme to reopen the airport and aims to develop a cluster of high value economic activity on the site including employment, retail and leisure as well as returning planes to the sky. 

Visit Doncaster recognises the huge value the Airport brings to the area for our residents and visitors and as such we are awaiting the outcome of any future legal processes before removing references to Doncaster Sheffield Airport from our webpages.
