Residents of South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire will be cheered by the news that Thomson and First Choice’s owner TUI are adding flights to Lanzarote, as well as Turkey and Tunisia, on their Doncaster airport flight rosters from May 2010.

This follows new investment in the Robin Hood Airport in Doncaster to create new customer service and check-in desks in the terminal building, plus a children's play area and themed boarding gates.
 
Neil Morris, Planning Director for TUI, said "This is one of the few airports where we are expanding our route network. The only other place is Edinburgh."
 
Doncaster airport already welcomes over 1 million passengers annually through its terminal and hopes to develop further services and continue to increase the range of destinations for passengers in the South Yorkshire and Sheffield City Region, over the coming months and years.

Robin Hood airport has only been open for commercial flights for four years, but already more than 40 destinations can be reached from Robin Hood Airport.
