Durham Tees Valley Airport (DTVA) was originally an important RAF airfield during the Second World War. DTVA began commercial operations as Teesside Airport in the mid 1960’s under local authority control, providing services to both the local business community and leisure passengers.
DTVA is situated 10 miles to the west of Middlesbrough in North East England.
In 2011, the airport handled over 200,000 passengers.
In April 2003, Peel Airports reached an agreement with the six local authority shareholders (Durham, Darlington, Stockton-on-Tees, Middlesbrough, Hartlepool and Redcar and Cleveland Borough Councils), to acquire a 75 percent shareholding in the Airport with the local authorities retaining a 25 percent interest in the company. In June 2010, Vantage Airport Group (formerly Vancouver Airport Services) acquired a 65 percent share in Peel Airports, which included DTVA. The six local authorities continue to be shareholders in Durham Tees Valley Airport.
On 10th February 2012, Peel Airports Limited concluded the sale of its majority shareholding in Durham Tees Valley Airport to Peel Investments (DTVA) Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Peel Group.
Principle airlines providing services at the Airport include KLM whose regular services to their Amsterdam Schiphol hub, provides access to their worldwide flight network and Eastern Airways who operate regular services to Aberdeen. A programme of holiday charter flights also operate from the airport.
Significant investment in recent years includes the completion of a new access road to the terminal and car park improvements.
- The renaming of the Airport to Durham Tees Valley Airport in 2004, helped to locate it on the international travel map, and provide a modern and convenient gateway to the region for visitors, further cementing the Airport’s commitment to regional tourism.
