Teesside International Airport (formerly Durham Tees Valley) has announced a new partnership with Eastern Airways which will see the airline adding 6 new routes.
The airport has seen dwindling passenger figures in recent years, but with the takeover by local mayor Ben Houchen who bought the airport last year, a period of development has taken place.
The first holiday flights in many years took off again last summer, and now a bolster to the airport’s scheduled network has been unveiled.
Eastern Airways will add the following services from Teesside:
- Cardiff – Daily, from 10 February 2020
- Belfast City – Daily (ex Sat), from 9 March 2020
- Dublin – Daily (ex Sat), from 9 March 2020
- Southampton – 2x Daily, from 9 March 2020
- London City – 2x Daily from 27 April 2020.
- Isle of Man – Seasonal, from 30 May 2020
Existing flights to Aberdeen will also be bolstered with extra frequencies.
Great news for the airport are returning links to both Dublin and London, which were lost some years ago.
Eastern MD Tony Burgess commented “We’re delighted to be starting this partnership with Teesside International.”
The airline will base three aircraft at the airport, and also open a line maintenance base.
