About Us

Teesside International is situated across the boroughs of Darlington and Stockton-on-Tees, ten miles to the west of Middlesbrough in north east England.

It was originally an important RAF airfield during the Second World War. Teesside International began commercial operations as Teesside Airport in the mid-1960s under local authority control, providing services to both the local business community and leisure passengers.

Following a period of private operation, the airport returned to public ownership in 2019 and was once again given its old name, Teesside International Airport, in July of that year.

Principle airlines providing services at the Airport include KLM, Ryanair and Loganair. KLM provides multiple daily global connectivity via its Amsterdam Schiphol hub. Loganair operates flights across the UK and Ireland, TUI operates weekly flights to Majorca and Ryanair, Europe’s No 1 Airline, offers summer sun with multiple locations across the Mediterranean plus year-round connections to Spain. An additional programme of holiday charter flights also operate from the airport.

As well as serving passengers, Teesside International Airport is home to a number of private companies including FedEx, Draken Europe, Willis Aviation Services Limited. These are expected to grow as the airport continues to invest in its land and assets, developing a £200million business park on the southside of the site, and increasing operations of its cargo handling facility.

The airport’s Jet Centre by Willis also provides a full range of ground handling services for business, private aviation, military, and cargo flights, with plans for further improvements as its parent company Willis Lease Finance Corporation expands its operations at the site.
