Lake Garda beckons for Tees Valley holidaymakers with new flight route
Teesside International Airport has today announced a new summer holiday destination for 2021.
Newmarket Holidays has announced the launch of a new route from the airport to Bergamo in Italy, starting from next year.
The holiday firm has unveiled nine tours in addition to trips to Lake Garda in Northern Italy. Portofino, Florence and Tuscany, Lake Como and Little Trains of the Dolomites are among the tour destinations offered by the company.
Richard Forde, head of trade sales at Newmarket Holidays, added: “We are delighted to be putting on another flight from Teesside offering a range of Italian destinations and tours to our customers, new and returning, from the North East area.”
Tees Valley Mayor, Ben Houchen, added: “It’s great to be able to add these holidays to Italy to our 2021 holiday schedule, which we launched last month with flights to Bulgaria and Majorca.
“The impact of this year’s coronavirus pandemic has meant that people haven’t been able to get away as usual, so we’re focused on making 2021 something special. We’re giving those across Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool – and the wider North-east – even more to look forward to when booking from their local airport.
“Newmarket’s popular breaks are always a welcome addition to our itinerary and this eight-day holiday will let local people fly direct to take in the fantastic lake itself and visit the wonderful and diverse towns and cities nearby.
“As we continue to grow our airport, we’re getting people Worldwide and Poolside from Teesside, and now we can add Lakeside to that too!”
