Teesside International Airport, previously Durham Tees Valley Airport, has been revived in recent years due to investment that has brought in flights to destinations such as Bulgaria, Portugal and Turkey.
New for 2022 are flights to Dalaman, Dublin and Enontekio – a favourite for those wishing to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
The airport was originally a Royal Air Force aerodrome and became a public airport in 1964. It has had many names over the years: Tees-Side Airport, Teesside International Airport, and Durham Tees Valley Airport. In 2019 a poll showed most locals preferred the name Teesside Airport, so it became Teesside International Airport once again.
Teesside International Airport boasts a Bannatyne Spa, the SkyBar, The Landside Café and other eateries and duty free shops.
You can also book flying lessons and experiences here. The airport has two flight schools: Aeroschool and Eden Flight Training. You can fly with BH Air, Eastern Airways, KLM, Loganair, Ryanair and TUI Airways from Teesside International Airport.
Parking at Teesside International Airport is pricey – you’re looking at £7 per hour if you don’t manage to pre-book. You can book online but you must bring the confirmation with you to the airport.
Public transport doesn’t run too frequently between the airport and Teesside’s major towns. The closest public railway station is Dinsdale, 2 miles away from the airport itself.
Bus routes serve the airport from Darlington town centre, and stops at the airport terminal around 7 times per day during the week. Please note it runs less frequently on a weekend.
