The Durham Tees Valley name has been dropped after 15 years as the airport is returned to its original name as Teesside International airport.

A new logo uses the original colours of the airport from before the 2004 rebrand of blue and green.

The change follows Stobart Aviation taking over as operator of the airport near Darlington in March following a return to public ownership.

Stobart Group partnership development director Kate Willard said: “Becoming Teesside International airport once again will ensure not only a strong connection with the area, but also help raise awareness of the exciting opportunity the airport offers within the wider travel industry.

“This can help us attract more airlines and partners to work with us, ultimately improving the service we can offer to passengers.”

Balkan Holidays started a full programme of summer charter flights in May, which will be repeated next year.

JetsGo Holidays is to run a summer programme of flights to Majorca in summer 2020.

The only regular scheduled services are operated by KLM to Amsterdam Schiphol and Eastern Airways to Aberdeen.
