Passengers from Doncaster Sheffield Airport will be able to fly to Palma this summer with Flybe, as the low cost airline announces its latest new route.
Tickets for the twice weekly service are on sale from today with flights taking off from July 7.
The announcement comes a week after The Star launched a campaign to promote the airport to boost the region.
Chris Harcombe, head of aviation development at Doncaster Sheffield Airport said: “We are delighted to be adding more options to fly to this fantastic Mediterranean destination.
“We’ve listened to feedback asking for more low cost flights to popular holiday spots and we’re pleased to deliver this route with Flybe.
“Flybe is offering a range of great sun destinations with us, with a really good schedule at great prices, so to add even more is a real boost for the region.”
Vincent Hodder, Flybe’s chief revenue officer, said: “We are pleased to be extending our 2017 summer schedule from Doncaster Sheffield Airport with the choice of yet more sun flights to such a popular summer holiday destination.
“Flights are scheduled to give customers flexibility and the choice of either a long weekend or a full week away so Yorkshire -based sun seekers can be as flexible as possible with their holiday plans.”
Flybe is Europe’s biggest regional airline. Last year it stationed two jets at DSA which delivered eight routes, 44 departures-a-week and an extra 500,000 seats-a-year. Destinations include two international hubs, Amsterdam and Paris.
DSA had a record 1.2m passengers last year and is one of the UK’s fastest growing in the country.
