Teesside International strengthens London links with new route launch
A national airline has today announced that it is launching a new route between Newcastle and London.
Loganair’s new route will see 11 flights a week between Teesside International Airport and London Heathrow.
The service will begin on 8 March, with weekend services increasing from 28 March onward.
This follows news late last year that the airline re-partnered with Teesside International after a two year absence.
Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen commented: “Securing flights into the capital with Loganair is another feather in our airport’s cap.
“The fact that in the next few days you will be able to go on to the websites of the likes of British Airways, Qatar and United Airlines and book flights from Teesside to hundreds of destinations across the globe shows just how far we’ve come since taking the airport back into public ownership and saving it from closure less than two years ago.
“The team is working tirelessly behind the scenes to bring back new bars, restaurants, duty free and a better customer experience with brand new security features, scanners and more check-in desks to manage the increasing number of passengers we’re expecting once we get through this pandemic.
“We look forward to welcoming people from across Teesside, the North East and North Yorkshire back through our great airport when restrictions allow and it is safe to do so.”
