Hopes have been raised that UK regional airport Doncaster Sheffield can be saved from closure thanks to the emergence of a “serious” potential bidder.
Local politicians in the Doncaster and South Yorkshire area of the UK have been in talks with potential buyers of the airport after current owner Peel Group started a consultation process on its future after Wizz Air suddenly withdrew its flights this summer.
Doncaster mayor Ros Jones said there had been “strong market interest” in taking over the regional airport, despite the “currently challenging” market conditions.
“Whilst we continue discussions in principle with several parties, we have one group that we believe is an extremely serious proposition,” explained Jones.
