The Robin Hood Airport opened in May 2005, and has already seen a million passengers fly from the airport.
The number of flights and destinations have increased, and we understand there are plans for trans-Atlantic flights to be introduced.

A Heritage Memorial has been unveiled opposite the terminal building which records the history of RAF Finningley, and the change of 'custodianship of aviation' to the commercial industry. The railings originally situated at the entrance to RAF Finningley form the backdrop to a rotating stainless steel sculpture titled 'Aviator'.
