Name change for Teesside airport

LinkedIn +

Effective July 25, the UK’s Durham Tees Valley airport will be known once more as Teesside International Airport.

The name change follows a public poll, where 93% of 14,000 respondents were in favor of changing the name back to its previous incarnation.

Once handling in the region of one million passengers a year, the airport has seen usage slide since it was sold to Peel Holdings in 2003. Taken back into public ownership last year, the newly renamed airport is being run by Stobart Aviation in partnership with the Tees Valley Combined Authority.

The airport’s new signage was unveiled Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen (pictured).
