Loganair is to add a route from Teesside International airport to Esbjerg in Denmark by extending an existing route from Aberdeen to the Danish port.
The route begins on Monday, November 8, initially on Mondays and Wednesdays, and has gone on sale today.
Travellers can board in Teesside, remain on the aircraft for a stop in Aberdeen, and continue to Esbjerg.
The regional carrier said the new one-stop route, which links through Aberdeen in Scotland, would be a “welcomed boost” for employees of the oil and gas industry.
The service will operate twice weekly in the winter and flights are to double to four times a week in the summer, with additional flights on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Fares start from £99.99 one way.
Loganair’s chief commercial officer, Kay Ryan (pictured), said: “We already operate a direct service from Aberdeen to Esbjerg on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays so it made sense to alter timings where we could to allow this easy connection for passengers south of the border.
“As the UK’s largest regional airline, strengthening our relationships and our customers’ connections with regional airports is so important. Passengers can enjoy multiple benefits from a Scottish stop over compared to a European connection flight and we hope this announcement will be a welcomed one, particularly by the business community.”
Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen, said: “It’s another new connection for Teesside and a further commitment from the UK’s largest regional airline, Loganair.
“I look forward to us welcoming even more new routes over the coming months as we look to grow our links further.”
