A Yorkshire airport has won a new cargo contract to bring flowers and vegetables to the UK for sale by some of the country's largest retailers.

Doncaster Sheffield Airport has secured a deal with Network Airline Management who will begin a weekly service from Nairobi to Yorkshire this week.

The deal represents the airport’s first scheduled flight handling perishable goods after the airport was certified as a dedicated port of entry for perishable commodities last year, allowing it to access a significant global market.

Dayle Hauxwell, cargo manager for Doncaster Sheffield Airport said: "We are delighted to be announcing this news so soon after seeing record cargo figures for last year.

"We’ll be working with Network Airline Management to handle a weekly scheduled flight from Nairobi with flowers and vegetables for the UK market. This deal will see some 3,500 tonnes of cargo transported a year. This new scheduled operation also opens up the opportunity for UK export freight."
