HiAir, a Lincoln-based corporate travel operation, is to test a Doncaster (DSA) to Amsterdam (AMS) scheduled service later this year. Monday 5 September has been confirmed for the maiden flight. The airline aims to deliver a business class service with an economy price tag for customers utilising a fully pressurised BAe Jetstream 32 – 19-seat aircraft – creating what it calls “a personal approach to flying”. HiAir says it is keen to trial the route in a bid to attract business people and holidaymakers alike, who wish to fly locally and buy into their one class, one price and one standard philosophy.
Mike Morton, Doncaster Sheffield Airport Director, said: "This is a great opportunity for the region to get behind a local company who are committed to offering travellers a high quality service to a key European airport. We know from past experience that Amsterdam is a destination that businesses in particular are keen to see served from this airport and we hope that interest from passengers will see this service come to fruition later in the year.
“HiAir offer something different for passengers and we will work closely with them over the coming weeks to help promote the benefits of their service and the convenience of flying from Robin Hood Airport."
Departure time is 07:30 to arrive 10:00 local. The return trip leaves Schiphol at 18:40 arriving 19:10. www.hiair.co.uk
