Durham Tees Valley Airport chiefs say that the news of another new operator beginning operations shows it is delivering on its plans to safeguard the airport’s future.

The airport’s Chief Executive Steve Gill was speaking after one of the UK’s leading short break holiday specialists, revealed details of its programme from Durham Tees Valley for 2018 and into early 2019.

Destinations in the programme announced by Super Break include Spain, Italy, Malta, Madeira, Gibraltar and Iceland.

The news of Super Break’s arrival at Durham Tees Valley follows on from other recent developments at the airport, including the start of scheduled services from Loganair, the completion of a £250,000 programme of terminal improvements and the launch of its ‘Flying for the Future’ campaign aimed at galvanising support for the airport’s key role in the area’s economic progress and demonstrating to airlines and operators that the Tees Valley is open for business

Said Mr Gill “We are delighted to welcome one of the UK’s leading short break specialists to Durham Tees Valley. When our Chairman last month announced we had reached a series of milestones in delivering our business plans for the airport, he predicted that there would be other good news in the pipeline and arrival of Super Break demonstrates the progress we are making, with support from all our partners.

“Super Break is offering an extensive programme of short breaks, with a wide choice of destinations, including many already popular with North East travellers, as well as some new to the region, such as Iceland and Gibraltar.”

“In the coming months we will be continuing to deliver on developments at the airport—for example the opening in Spring of a new upgraded Premium Lounge—and working to attract further services and destinations.”

“The ‘Flying for the Future’ campaign launched last month is a chance for everyone to play a part in supporting their local airport. The greater the support, the more people who use our services whenever they can, the better the chance of growing the business and delivering more flights and routes.”
