Doncaster Sheffield Airport unveils expansion plans

Doncaster Sheffield Airport is planning a £10-million redevelopment.

Work will include a bigger retail food and beverage offering, new gate bridges and an expansion of the arrivals hall and security search area.

The plans were outlined during a visit to the airport by UK aviation minister Paul Maynard.

Many of the proposed improvements should be completed for summer 2021.

Airport management discussed plans which have the potential unlock 33,000 gross jobs over the next 10 years - 10,000 of them within the next 5 years, in engineering, manufacturing aviation, energy and construction.   

Doncaster Sheffield Airport chairman Robert Hough said: "Today's announcement follows £3.5 million invested to create additional parking spaces to keep up with customer demand and £2m investment in our on-site solar farm that will generate 25% of the airport's energy."
