Subsidies provided by Government over certain amounts are published online. In 2021 the Department for Transport provided £1,758,720 to Doncaster Sheffield Airport in grant payments as part of the Airport and Ground Operations Support Scheme. During the pandemic the government has also provided around £8bn in support through package of measures during the pandemic to support the air transport sector. This includes support through loan guarantees, the Bank of England’s Covid Corporate Financing Facility and the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. Doncaster Sheffield Airport may have drawn from that wider support.

During the UK’s membership of the European Union and the EU Exit Implementation Period, any subsidies exceeding an amount of approximately €500k made available to organisations were published on https://ec.europa.eu/transparencyregister/public/consultation/search.do?locale=en.

Following the United Kingdom’s departure from the EU, any subsidies exceeding an amount of approximately £368k are now published on https://www.gov.uk/guidance/view-subsidies-awarded-by-uk-government.
