Newmarket boost summer programme with extra flight and concert trips


With its June flight from Durham Tees Valley Airport to Italy already sold out, leading independent tour operator Newmarket has now announced that it will be operating another flight from the airport later in the summer - and is also offering North Easterners the chance to fly from their local airport to a series of major concerts in Europe.

The new flight now on sale will leave Durham Tees Valley for Verona on Sunday, September 28, offering a wide choice of tours including many of Italy’s most beautiful cites and lakes, as well as the Austrian Tyrol.

The tours include the ‘Seven Cities of Italy’ visiting Venice, Verona, Florence, Rome, Assisi, Siena and San Gimignano, with prices starting at £909, eight days in Venice, Verona and Lake Garda starting at £807, the Austrian Tyol and Lake Garda starting at £759, and eight days in the Italian Lakes starting at £859.

Meanwhile fans of Europe’s waltz king Andre Rieu can see him playing in his home town of Maastricht, with Newmarket laying on three-day packages leaving Durham Tees Valley on Friday July 11 and Friday 18 - and another for his concert in Brussels leaving the airport on Friday November 14.

Brussels will also be the venue to see Cliff Richard performing his two-hour ‘Still Reelin’ and A-Rockin’ show, with a three-day holiday leaving the airport on Friday, May 30.

Says Newmarket Holidays Regional Charter Manager Amanda George:

Our Italian and Austrian tours have been popular with North East customers for many years and we’re delighted that, after such an enthusiastic response to our June programme, we can offer a further opportunity to fly from Durham Tees Valley in September with a great choice of tours.

For the very fans of Andrew Rieu and Cliff Richard, our three day holidays from Durham Tees Valley provide a great opportunity to mix music with leisure, taking in the shows and having the time to get in plenty of sightseeing and shopping in exciting and historic cities.

Adds Airport Commercial Director Andy Foulds:

We’re delighted to maintain our long relationship with Newmarket Holidays and the popularity of their tours is illustrated by the demand for their programme this coming summer.
