Sheffield City Airport was in the Tinsley Park area of the city, just off the Parkway, and opened in 1997 but lasted only 11 years. It got off to a good start with airlines KLM UK, Sabena, British Airways and Aer Arann offering regular passenger services between Belfast, Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Jersey and London.

A hard-fought campaign to save it failed and the airport officially closed on April 30, 2008 and the site – famously sold for £1 – is now part of the Advanced Manufacturing Park.
