Travellers can now fly to two new destinations from South Yorkshire thanks to a link-up with a UK regional airline.

The routes - which have created 10 new jobs - will see airline Links Air flights depart Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield bound for the Isle of Man and the capital of Northern Ireland, Belfast, from April.

Steve Gill, managing director of the Finningley airport, said: “This is fantastic news for the airport and for Yorkshire passengers.

“These two new routes are a great addition to our offering.

“Belfast will be a fantastic business route with people being able to set off in the morning and be in Belfast city centre for the start of the business day.

“Our new three-time weekly service to the Isle of Man is Yorkshire’s only link to the island, famous for its world famous TT motorcycle race event and its rugged coastline and sandy beaches.

“It is also a convenient link for the financial services sector.”

Belfast flights, which start on Monday, April 7, will run twice-daily on weekdays with a single Sunday return.

The new Isle of Man service, operating on Mondays, Fridays and Sundays, will commence on Monday April 14.

Ros Jones, Mayor of Doncaster, said: “Doncaster Sheffield Airport is one of our great assets.

“We are delighted they are adding new routes to their current destinations which will undoubtedly make travelling from Doncaster a more attractive proposition for people.

Roger Hage, Links Air commercial manager, said: “We are delighted to be making Robin Hood Doncaster Sheffield our fourth aircraft and crew base and supporting up to 10 new jobs at the airport.

“We are confident these routes will be well supported and have the ability to grow.”
