Vote For Teesside As Airport Wins Prestigious Spot On Awards Shortlist

Posted in: Updates

Published on: 6th July 2023

We need your vote.

That’s the message from Teesside Airport after it was shortlisted for a prestigious prize in the British Travel Awards.

The publicly owned airport will compete with giants such as Heathrow and Gatwick to become Best UK Airport for Leisure in the 2023 competition.

Voting is now open – and all Tees Valley residents are being encouraged to throw their weight behind their airport. To vote, go to British Travel Awards 2023 – Teesside International Airport

Winners are decided purely on the number of votes they receive. Everyone who signs up to vote will also be entered into a prize draw, with many prizes on offer for anyone who votes in the awards.

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “We all know how important our local airport is in tying Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool to the rest of the globe. But it’s great to see the industry recognising our potential and our vast strengths when it comes to offering top quality service.

“I’d urge everyone to back our airport and vote for us in this prestigious competition. The sky truly is the limit in what we can achieve across our airport with our cargo facility, Freeport status, and £200million Business Park roaring ahead.

“We’re also working all the time to secure more holiday flights and destinations we all want to see. We’ve still a lot to do but we have come an awfully long way in a short space of time.”

Teesside Airport has seen a busy 12 months.

Passengers are currently enjoying great holidays to Alicante as part of Ryanair’s full slate of summer flights. This also includes Corfu, Faro and Majorca.

TUI – one of the UK’s biggest travel companies – has also launched flights to Antalya in Turkey for 2023, alongside an extra Majorca flight this summer, while Balkan Holidays is flying twice weekly to Bulgaria.

Teesside was the first airport in the country to be ready for new flight rules with scanners installed late last year to speed up the security process – ensuring you no longer have to remove liquids and electronics from your hand luggage.

And it has also recently been named one of the most punctual airports in the UK.

It all comes on the back of £3million of investments in the terminal building to improve the passenger experience.
