More flights to the sun

The August Bank Holiday period is expected to be one of Robin Hood Airport’s busiest of the year, with around 15,000 passengers expected to be travelling through this weekend.

This year there has been a greater choice of summer sun destinations available from Doncaster Sheffield Airport, with 33 departing flights to 20 Mediterranean resorts this weekend alone.

Robin Tudor, spokesman for Peel Airports, said: “The great choice of flights and convenience of flying from their local airport looks like proving irresistible.”
