Sunny skies ahead for Tees Valley holidaymakers with summer 2021 routes announced
Holidaymakers across Tees Valley are set to be connected with a range of European destinations with new 2021 routes from a regional airport.
Teesside International has announced its first routes for its 2021 summer season, including tourist favourites Bulgaria and Majorca.
Balkan Holidays’ flights to Bourgas in Bulgaria are set to take off again next year, after being postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. While JetsGo Holiday has announced the launch of breaks to Majorca from the airport for the first time.
Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen commented: “The cancellation of our 2020 summer schedule was upsetting but unavoidable as the coronavirus pandemic took hold across the globe.
“I know a lot of families were looking forward to flying out from Teesside to Majorca, Bulgaria and more for their holidays, but the circumstances were outside of anyone’s control.
“Now we’re looking to the future to make 2021 the best summer it can be for holidaymakers across the region, with these popular routes back at our airport and, in Balkan Holidays’ case, growing from its last service in 2019.
“Both Balkan Holidays and JetsGo Holidays share our confidence in Teesside International and have shown this with their commitment to coming back year after year, even when the wider aviation industry is going through a difficult time. We’re delighted to welcome them back.”
Chris Rand, sales and marketing manager at Balkan Holidays, commented: “We are pleased to be repeating our Teesside to Bourgas charter flight for summer 2021.
“Many of our customers transferred their summer 2020 holiday to summer 2021 so it should be even more popular.”
Daniel Reilly, managing director of JetsGo Holidays, added: “We are pleased to be able to confirm a service from Teesside to Majorca for summer 2021 as we saw an excellent response from the region for our summer 2020 flight programme which unfortunately was unable to operate.
“While 2020 has turned into a staycation year for the majority, many have expressed a real desire to get something planned for next year that they can really look forward to, evident by the fact a lot of our summer 2020 customers opted to change their holidays over to 2021 instead.
“Teesside offers an easy and convenient start to a holiday for everyone living in the region. We look forward to continuing to work with Teesside Airport to explore new opportunities for additional services in the future.”
