Aviation and innovation unite to create the perfect catalyst for inward investment and economic development.

Doncaster Sheffield Airport

Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) has the potential to handle 25 million passengers and 254,000 tonnes of cargo per annum. Located within the Sheffield City Region (SCR), the airport has a catchment area of 6.2 million within a 60-minute drive time.

DSA has been awarded the title of Which? best small to medium sized airport and currently provides flights to over 55 destinations across Europe, the USA, and South America.

There are ambitious development plans for the airport that will see it grow and outcompete some of the biggest airports in the UK. Air transport (people and goods) provides one of the most important strands of connectivity needed to support and generate profitable urban growth.

Excellent logistics and room for expansion

The airport is situated at the heart of the Gateway East development in Doncaster. It benefits from a location that combines flexible infrastructure, and the space to allow for expansion and the growth of passenger numbers, airfreight operations and other businesses.

The business park has the capacity to become a world-class hub for cargo and airside operations, logistics, aerospace, manufacturing, advanced engineering, High Value Design (HVD), Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) and Industry 4.0. Future development schemes provide a fantastic opportunity for sustainable economic growth and include the construction of additional residential accommodation, retail outlets, leisure, R&D, and training facilities.

The national and international connectivity provided by DSA and the development of the Gateway East innovation cluster combine to create the perfect catalyst for generating growth and prosperity, bringing further investment and jobs into the area.
