Future Of Sheffield Airport?

Fri Nov 22, 2002 4:20 am

Does it have one?

I have to say that I really regret there being no more flights to Belfast (or at all!!!) as I would gladly pay BA prices rather than having to trapse across the Midlands to get to a low-cost airport or Manchester. Is there any activity at all there now? And is there ever likely to be?

There won't be any more scheduled services there...various bits of equipment have been taken away. It's only future is a GA/FBO one (though there's nothing wrong with that)

KLM uk [or was it still good ole Air UK at the time...?] used to have three daily F50 rotations to/from AMS.
Any chance it will ever return?

Hi,
I suspect the Saturday BA Jersey charters will be back for the summer months though sadly, I do not think Sheffield will be getting any new carriers in the new future.

Regards Adrian.

Its a shame really as Sheffield is a big city - a longer runway would have helped though as may have attracted a LCC and then who knows what might have happened.....
No officer, its NOT a surface to air missile its a camera..for taking photographs.
