Sheffield City Airport (IATA: SZD, ICAO: EGSY) was a small airport in Sheffield; it is now closed. It was in the Tinsley Park area of the city, near the M1 motorway and Sheffield Parkway, and opened in 1997. The airport’s CAA licence was withdrawn on 21 April 2008 and it was officially closed on 30 April 2008, as Sheffield City Council had approved plans to turn the airport into a business park. On 22 November 2012, the South and East Yorkshire Branch of the Federation of Small Businesses launched a campaign and petition with the aim of delaying redevelopment of the airport site, and calling for the airport’s potential to be reassessed. Three weeks later, a mystery bidder made a bid to Sheffield City Council to reopen the airport.
