Teesside International Airport kicks off route launch with Middlesbrough FC partnership
Teesside International Airport has struck up a new partnership with Middlesbrough FC as it debuts new destinations.
The airport has teamed up with the Championship club as it launched the new routes to London City Airport, Belfast City Airport, Cardiff and Southampton.
Last Friday (February 7) saw Middlesbrough FC players Jonathan Woodgate and Robbie Keane kick off ticket sales of the new flights.
Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen commented: “I am delighted to announce that tickets are now on sale. Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool is once again connected to all four corners of the UK as well as Ireland and with these amazing prices I’m sure the new flights will be hugely popular with local people and business.
“Strengthening our partnership with Middlesbrough FC gives us even more of an opportunity to work together to promote the new routes we’ve secured at our airport.
Lee Fryett, head of commercial at Middlesbrough Football Club, added: “We already have close links with Teesside International Airport as the team regularly uses it for our away travel.
“Strengthening our partnership will provide an opportunity for our fantastic fan base to learn more about the growing number of flights and destinations on offer.
“Our fans are some of the most passionate and loyal in the country, and getting them behind our airport will really help make it the success we know it can be.”
