Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield is an international airport located at the former RAF Finningley airbase at Finningley, in the Metropolitan Borough of Doncaster within South Yorkshire, England. The airport lies 3 NM southeast of Doncaster and 18 mi east of Sheffield.

The airport is operated by Peel Airports, a division of Peel Holdings majority owned by Vancouver Airport Services.
