Doncaster - Sheffield is a rather small airport and this is when problems start... The check in is a terrible experience - as they not so busy they check every passenger with the thoroughness worthy of the Chinese guards. I have been scanned twice, Mr did not like my 12 months old and dry mascara. He embarrassed me in front of other amazed passengers by throwing out all the stuff from my luggage! Bits by bits: my tampons, thongs, bra landed on the checking desk. Every item was carefully... (read more)

I had noticed your white ANPR Van behind me when I noticed my boot was open…..as I stopped my girlfriend actually waved to the driver and pointed to the boot…..the driver waved back then pulled up in front of me, little did I know I was about to get an £80 fine in the post, just for stopping to close the boot ( 30 seconds)…….All I can say is…..There is no wonder at all why this airport is named ‘ROBIN HOOD’ !!! To issue a ticket to a disabled driver who had just paid for 1... (read more)

We use Doncaster for our ski trips to Italy as it is local to us and much easier to use than larger airport, lots of parking near the terminal. We have used the airport for 4 years and this year it was noticeable that the staff were friendlier.It's nice and light and airy.
However, I don't think we will be using it for winter trips again. The flight to Italy is early on a Sunday morning - no other flights at the same time. Yet it took over an hour to check in at the desk and then another... (read more)

This is the second time I have used this airport, and the experience was terrible and both times the automatic car parkimg barriers failed to work on exit. Worse still the checking in desk person was the rudest most arrogant person I have ever met at an airport! Argued about every thing that they possibly could. Did not do the security questions as they are suppose to. Because I questioned her actions she sent for the airport police! Thus a simple check in end up taking about half an hour... (read more)

This is a very small nice looking airport which should be a good idea and easy to get through, but no. Road links from the south are poor and you get held up by tractors, lorries and single carriageways. Car parking is right next to the terminal and fine, unless it is raining and then you get quite wet. It is also very dimly lit at night. The exit machine disagreed with the on-line price paid and took some more money. For one full flight of 150 people or mroe there was just one security... (read more)

I thought that Robin Hood airport was going to be poor as most small airports are, but in fact I was very pleased with the airport and I would love to fly from there again but the chances are small because the airport is small! (read more)

Interesting and modern terminal building which is nice and quiet. Check-in and security are well organized and moves at a good speed. For the number of flights from the airport shops and eating facilities are really quite good! The airport beautifully clean and also offers a good amount of Holiday/Charter flights. (read more)

Having visited the site numerous times in the past I was impressed with the general facilities and could forgive the transport link problems due to ongoing improvements to the regions newest airport. 12 months later what a difference, the transport links seem worse than ever, the facilities have gone down hill and in its current configuration in my view the whole airport is a waste of good facilities.
I can only imagine what international passengers think when they arrive or depart via... (read more)

Doncaster Robin Hood Airport - From the moment I heard about the proposed plans for Doncaster airport I was a supporter. I even sported a sticker on my car showing my support, although there were a few folk in Doncaster who didn't want the plans to go ahead. Well tough luck because the plans did go ahead. Doncaster Airport was to be situated at the old RAF base in Finningley which boasts one of the longest runways in Europe. A terminal was built, staff were employed and trained, airline... (read more)
