Why choose Doncaster Sheffield Airport

1. Great Location

Sheffield 35 minutes / Barnsley 45 minutes / Wakefield 50 minutes / Leeds 52 minutes / Hull 58 minutes / York 1hr 5 minutes

2. Easy Car Parking Options

This isn’t the most glamorous subject, but they really do have it just right! The car parks are SO close to the terminal, it is literally a 60 second walk to the terminal building. How perfect is that?! You can choose from Short Stay, Long Stay, Premium Parking or Meet & Greet. I opted for Meet & Greet and I am so pleased I did, it is worth every penny! I was greeted by a really friendly staff member who directed me to the terminal. My favourite thing was upon return, I was greeted by the same staff member who welcomed me with a big smile on his face and a chirpy ‘Hello Miss Denton, how was your flight?’….Now that is personalised service! I was blown away! Not only that, my car was ready and waiting for me to jump in and drive home straight away, which is exactly what you want after a flight. Read more here:

3. Quick & Easy Check in

Doncaster Sheffield Airport certainly win the award for the smoothest and quickest check-in experience! I used the self-check in machines in the terminal and then went straight to departures and through security. All within 5 minutes – I used the fast track service too, which is included in the price of the premium lounge.

4. Premium Lounge

Oh wow, now this is airport perfection! I was so chilled in here. I instantly felt at home and set myself up near the plug sockets (always a winner!) They offer complimentary drinks and snacks, along with breakfast, brunch and lunch options. I had a beautiful tuna salad, although I have heard the Fish Finger sandwich is a huge hit…Some even say it is the best in Yorkshire 😉 They have so many different drink options too, you can order Spirits, wines, beers and also a large range of ciders. It is totally worth it, especially to be able to benefit from the fast track service too! Read more here:

5. Friendly Staff

I have mentioned this a few times, but it is something I feel really strongly about! The staff are amazing in the airport, whether you speak to the team on check in, or the staff in the departure terminal, everyone has a smile on their face and are always happy to help. As Walt Disney would say…‘You can design, create and build the most wonderful place in the world, but it takes people to make the dream a reality’

    I totally agree, the airport is so easy to get through and everyone is so friendly! I made it through security in 5 minutes too (I didn’t have fast track) then sat in the departure lounge. I’ll try the premium lounge for my next flight!

    Don’t forget the amazing ramp staff that turn the aircrafts around, the only time they get a mention is in bad publicity.

    Have used this airport many times, last time in April this year, will be using again in October this year. My flights are usually early so unable to use lounge which is a great pity. I would also like to mention that as far as I am aware to date there are NO self check in facilities at this airport. Best airport in UK if you want a tress free experience.
