Scottish airline returns to Middleborough.

After departing the airport in 2018 Loganair is to come back to Teesside, once called Durham Tees Valley, but actually 25 miles south of the city, 12 miles from Middlesbrough and six miles from Darlington.

Loganair Chief Executive Jonathan Hinkles said: “We’re very happy to be returning to Teesside International. And we are back for good. We’re really looking forward to working with the team at the airport and the wider Tees Valley Combined Authority.  

“There’s no doubt that air travel is having a difficult time right now, but I’m confident that our plans for Teesside International are both viable and appropriate now and for the longer term.”

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “Even in these tough times, it’s fantastic to be welcoming yet another airline partner back to Teesside International giving people from the region, the wider North East and Yorkshire, even more options when flying domestically from their local airport.”

Flights from Teesside to Aberdeen and Belfast City will operate from the start of February 2021, with Dublin, Jersey and Newquay flights set to begin in summer 2021.
