Durham Tees Valley Airport kicks off new Middlesbrough partnership

20/01/2017

Middlesbrough Football Club and Durham Tees Valley Airport have today announced a new partnership which will see them working together to promote to fans and their families the airport’s connections to destinations across the world.

The deal will see the airport benefit from a prime advertising presence at the Boro’s Riverside ground, promoting its worldwide connections to both fans in the ground and television viewers across the globe.

The club and airport will also work together on developing initiatives underlining the benefits for both the club and the local community, including flight giveaway competitions on selected match days and special offers to Boro fans from our airline partners including KLM.

Says Durham Tees Valley Airport Manager Shaun Woods “We are delighted to announce this partnership which will cement our already close relationship with the Boro. We already work very closely with them on team travel to their away Premiership fixtures, supporting other teams arriving for games at the Riverside, and player personal travel.

“The support from the club in this new partnership will help to promote the message that Durham Tees Valley really is at the heart of the local community and that, through the flagship KLM service to Amsterdam Schiphol, whether for business or pleasure, you can fly to over 200 destinations worldwide.”

Head of Partnerships at Middlesbrough Football Club Lee Fryett adds “We already have close links with Durham Tees Valley as the team regularly use it for our away travel and this new partnership will help us to greatly develop the relationship with the airport. We are certainly committed to playing our part in helping to promote its future development.

“Football is an international business which is the same for so many of our local companies who increasingly have to compete in the global marketplace and for whom access to a worldwide network from their local airport is so important.”
