Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield is launching a region-wide business survey, to obtain feedback on business travel trends in order to gauge future route opportunities for travellers.

The results of the business survey will play a major part in the vision, strategy and business plan for the airport for the next five years.

The airport is working in partnership with RDC Aviation, the regional Chambers of Commerce and the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership to deliver the survey.

It is part of a major programme of research that Doncaster Sheffield Airport has commissioned since The Peel Group’s re-acquisition of the airport earlier this year.

Steve Gill, managing director at Doncaster Sheffield Airport, said: “Our primary objectives for the survey are to improve connectivity for businesses within the city region, to help businesses grow and to attract further investment.”

Dan Fell, deputy chief executive of the Doncaster Chamber of Commerce, said: “The Chambers of Commerce across the city region are delighted to support this research project.

“The airport remains one of the biggest opportunities for our regional economy and the local business community is desperate to see the airport grow and thrive.

“Doncaster Sheffield Airport has enormous potential to support international business travel and freight activity whilst, at the same time, supporting tourism and inward investment.

“Critical to the realisation of those opportunities is understanding what the business customer wants and delivering against those needs.”

Those completing the survey will be entered into a draw to win two tickets to Warsaw.
